The Dangers Of Obesity

What you need to know about dealing with obesity

Obesity has many health risks associated with it. On average, the life expectancy and overall quality of life of those who are obese is lower than it is for others.

Obesity leads to a greatly increased risk of all of the following:

  • Heart attack
  • Stroke 
  • High blood pressure 
  • Diabetes 
  • Knee and joint problems 
  • Various types of cancer 
Obesity is more than just being a few pounds overweight. Those who are obese have a much greater strain on their heart and other organs than other people.

The quality of life of those suffering from obesity is reduced as well. Obesity makes it very difficult to get the physical exercise needed in order to remain healthy and enjoy your favorite activities.

Dealing with obesity

Dealing with obesity is very difficult without the help of a physician. Many obese people try to lose weight on their own by trying special diets and exercise routines that usually end in failure.

Your doctor can help you establish a realistic, workable plan of diet and exercise to enable you to slowly and safely achieve the results you need and want. In extreme cases, he/she can recommend medical procedures that are designed to help your body deal with the obesity and reduce your weight to a manageable level.
