Obesity is a chronic disease of multifactorial origin that is characterized by excessive accumulation of fat in the body, to a point where it puts health and life at risk.

According to data from the World Health Organization (WHO), a person suffers from this condition when their body mass index (BMI) is equal to or greater than 30 kg / m².

Although it is an individual clinical condition, in recent years it has become a serious public health problem , since the number of people affected has increased alarmingly.

Although many cases are of genetic, hormonal and metabolic origin, most are related to sedentary lifestyle and poor diet.

The most worrisome is that many patients are unaware of their health effects and are not aware of all the problems they are exposed to because they do not take measures to control it.

For this reason, the next space we want to dedicate to the 8 main risks of suffering it.

1. Type 2 diabetes

Obesity increases the risk of type 2 diabetes, especially when preventive measures are not taken in terms of nutrition.

  • This disease is related to the excessive consumption of carbohydrates and refined sugars , which also increase the tendency to accumulate fat.
  • As a result, the pancreas has difficulty producing the right amount of insulin, the hormone responsible for regulating blood glucose.
  • On the other hand the cells can develop an insulin resistance due to the accumulation of glucose, which also leads to having this disease.

2. High cholesterol and triglycerides

It is very common that, when measuring cholesterol and triglyceride levels in obese patients, they are above normal.

  • These lipids accumulate alarmingly in the arteries , due to the body’s difficulties in properly breaking down fats.
  • It should be mentioned that, in addition, these problems are the result of poor diet that many patients with obesity tend to have.

3. Hypertension

  • This condition, in turn, can affect kidney, heart and brain health.

4. Cardiovascular diseases

A large number of patients with obesity have heart attacks and strokes related to the difficulties that occur in the body due to the accumulation of fat.

  • The combination of diabetes with high cholesterol and hypertension are the great trigger to suffer, at some point, these chronic diseases.
  • In addition, since it also affects circulatory health, it accelerates brain deterioration.
