How Does Obesity Affect The Body Systems?

One of the deadliest and widely spread lifestyle diseases is obesity. A person is considered to be obese if he has a BMI (Body Mass Index) over 30. In a recent study, it has been found that almost 60% of the total population globally is obese or overweight. Among which 38% are men and 40% are women. Sadly enough even children below the age of 5 are also suffering from obesity due consumption of unhealthy and junk food.

There was a time when people used to eat mainly freshly cooked home food. But today due to the fast lifestyles people mostly have readymade or processed food instead of home cooked food. Having too much of fat storage in the body and then not burning them out with proper workouts lead to obesity. Obesity also comes along with a lot of other diseases such as heart diseases, blood pressure issue and diabetes. 90% of people who suffer from obesity also suffers from diabetes.

What are the risk factors related to obesity?

This one disease increases the risk of multiple other health problems. Some of the common diseases may include:
  • Cancer (Endometrial, colon and breast)- After smoking, obesity is the next biggest cause for cancer.
  • Liver and gallbladder problems- Obesity is one of the greatest reasons behind the growth of stones and blockages in the ducts.
  • Infertility- Obesity reduces the quality of eggs produced in a female body. Similarly, it also reduces the quality and quantity of sperm produced in a male body. Most obese women have higher chances of having PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome).
  • Osteoarthritis- Obesity stresses the joints and thus obese people often suffer with arthritis.
  • Coronary heart disease and stroke - Patients with too much fat has higher chances of heart attack and stroke. Because of excessive fat, inflammation is likely to occur. It causes poor blood flow and potential blockages.
  • Respiratory issues- Obesity affects both the nervous and the respiratory systems. Being overweight hinders your ability to breathe. More amounts of fat mean the body needs more oxygen.
