Metabolic Balance

Other Complications

Insulin Resistance
This is a common condition in people who are overweight or obese, have excess abdominal fat and are not physically active.

High triglyceride levels
Regular overeating leading to obesity causes a person to have raised triglycerides which are linked with an increased risk of health conditions including diabetes and heart disease.

High cholesterol levels
Being overweight or obese lends to increase your LDL cholesterol and lower your HDL cholesterol. Having fat in the abdominal area (a waistline above 35 inches) is also linked to high cholesterol and high triglyceride levels.

Heart disease
Obesity is a major modifiable risk factor for coronary heart disease. Excess weight increases a person’s risk of developing heart failure:
-  Overweight (BMI 25 to 29.9) = 34% increased risk.
-  Obese (BMI 30 or higher) = 104% increased risk.

Gall bladder diseases
Gall stones are more common if you are overweight. Your risk of gall bladder disease increases as your weight increases.

Osteoarthritis
It is a common condition that often affects the knee, hip and back. Being overweight places extra pressure on these joints and wears away the cartilage that normally protects them. Weight loss helps to improve the osteoarthritis symptoms.

Cancer
Several types of cancer are associated with being overweight. Cancers of the colon, breast, endometrium, kidney and oesophagus are associated with obesity.

Sleep apnoea
This causes a person to snore heavily and to stop breathing for short periods during sleep. The risk for sleep apnoea increases as body weight increases. Weight loss often improves sleep apnoea.

Infertility
Obesity is a leading cause of infertility in both men and women. Obesity in females is commonly associated with irregular/ infrequent/ absent menstrual cycles. Obesity acts like a fuel to the fire of PCOS (poly cystic ovary syndrome). Obesity worsens the hyper androgenemia, hyper insulinemia and insulin resistance already pre-existing in PCOS. So unless these women reduce their weight it is difficult to treat them.

Being overweight and obesity have been found to be the major driving forces in the development of metabolic syndrome (a cluster of risk factors that occur together and increase the risk for heart disease, stroke and Type II Diabetes)
