Risk Factors of Obesity

0 Comment

The Higher mortality rate with colon cancer has been linked with high body mass index (BMI). Endometrial cancer is clearly common in obese women, who gain weight again increasing risk. Cardiovascular Disorders is another disease associated with obesity (Brophy et al., 2010). Elderly persons who suffer from obesity develop the cardiovascular disorder. The elderly are idle most of the time and do not engage in physical exercise. As a result, many fats accumulate in their body, and they end up being obese (Brophy et al., 2010). Hypertension, dyslipidemia, insulin resistance, and glucose intolerance are to be the cause of cardiac risk factors that tend to cluster in obese people. Most of the old people who suffer from obesity develop this problem and end up dying (Brophy et al., 2010). Type 2 Diabetes is another disease caused by the accumulation of fatty foods in the body. It is a chronic disease. Overweight and obesity is the main threat for type-2 diabetes, and it is the cause of the current epidemic of noninsulin-dependent diabetes (Brophy et al., 2010). Stimulation of excess insulin promotes synthesis body fat and cholesterol. Low-Density Lipoprotein cholesterol, triglycerides and decreased High-Density Lipoprotein are as a result of the impaired insulin. Central obesity increases the likelihood of severe diseases especially cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. The abdominal fat of central obesity seems to be more insulin resistant than bordering fat deposited over the abdomen and legs (Brophy et al., 2010).
