TOP 8 RISKS Associated with Obesity

There are risks associated with obesity. Sugar, fatty/processed foods and other unnaturally occurring substances found in the food we buy and consume is like eating a bomb with a set timer. How much longer are you going to continue to expose yourself and your family up to risk?

#1 Heart Disease & Stroke

The clot or plaque can travel through the bloodstream and get stuck in one of the brain’s arteries. This stops blood flow through the artery and damages brain cells. Heart conditions and blood disorders also can cause blood clots that can lead to a stroke.

#2 High Blood Pressure

Usually hypertension is defined as blood pressure above 130/80, and is considered severe if the pressure is above 180/120. High blood pressure often has no symptoms. Over time, if untreated, it can cause health conditions, such as heart disease and stroke. Eating a healthier diet with less salt can help lower blood pressure.

#3 Diabetes II (Reversible)

With type 2 diabetes, the body either doesn’t produce enough insulin, or it resists insulin. Symptoms include increased thirst, frequent urination, hunger, fatigue, and blurred vision. In some cases, there may be no symptoms. Treatments include diet, exercise, medication, and insulin therapy.

#4 Cancer

Cancer, which is a fungus, is when abnormal cells divide in an uncontrolled way. Some cancers may eventually spread into other tissues. There are more than 200 different types of cancer.

#5 Gallbladder Disease & Gallstones

There are multiple conditions affecting the gallbladder, a small organ that helps digestion.

  • Gallstones: A hardened deposit within the fluid in the gallbladder, a small organ under the liver.
  • Cholecystitis: Inflammation of the gallbladder, a small, digestive organ beneath the liver.
  • Cholestasis: Any condition in which the flow of bile from the liver stops or slows.
  • Gallbladder cancer: Cancer that develops in the gallbladder, a small organ below the liver.

#6 Osteoarthritis 

The wearing down of the protective tissue at the ends of bones (cartilage) occurs gradually and worsens over time. Joint pain in the hands, neck, lower back, knees, or hips is the most common symptom. Medications, physical therapy, and sometimes surgery can help reduce pain and maintain joint movement.

#7 Gout

Pain and inflammation occur when too much uric acid crystallizes and deposits in the joints. Symptoms of gout include severe pain, redness, and swelling in joints, often the big toe. Attacks can come suddenly, often at night.

#8 Breathing Problems (Sleep Apnea)

A potentially serious sleep disorder in which breathing repeatedly stops and starts. Symptoms include snoring loudly and feeling tired even after a full night’s sleep. Treatment often includes lifestyle changes, such as weight loss.
