7 Diseases Are Related To Obesity

Obesity is the root of all evil. It can be said that obesity is an independent chronic disease. If you do not control your weight in time, it will cause varying degrees of damage to the respiratory system, heart, pancreas, gallbladder, liver and blood vessels, and even induce cancer.

What diseases can obesity induce?

1. Hyperlipidemia


Obese people have less utilization of free fatty acids, high concentration of free fatty acids in blood and disorder of fat metabolism. If you eat too many carbohydrates, it will increase the content of triglycerides in plasma and cause hyperlipidemia.

2. Diabetes mellitus

Diabetes mellitus

Most diabetics are obese and have more fat cells in the body. The pancreas needs to produce more insulin and promote the conversion of sugar into energy. When the pancreatic function is weakened, it will increase the sugar content in the blood, which can not be fully utilized and excreted from the body.

3. Coronary heart disease

coronary heart disease

Coronary heart disease is caused by coronary atherosclerosis, which causes cardiac ischemia and hypoxia. The incidence rate and mortality rate of obese people with coronary heart disease are very high. In addition, obesity can cause hyperlipidemia, lead to vascular atherosclerosis, form a large number of plaques, cause vascular stenosis or blockage, resulting in coronary heart disease and myocardial infarction. Obesity also increases the burden on the heart, causing left ventricular hypertrophy and heart failure over time.

4. Sleep apnea syndrome

Sleep apnea syndrome

Obese people have a lot of fat in the respiratory tract. When lying flat in bed, fat can compress the respiratory tract, causing obstruction of the respiratory tract, leading to apnea or asthma. Sleep apnea also puts the body in a state of chronic ischemia and hypoxia, especially when brain cells are hypoxic, it can cause brain cell death and increase the risk of Alzheimer's disease.

5. Gynecological diseases

Gynecological diseases

Most obese women have irregular menstruation, which can also cause premenstrual syndrome. Obese women will have a large amount of estrogen secretion. When there is too much estrogen and too little lutein, it can cause edema.

6. Fatty liver and gout

Fatty liver

Generally, people with abdominal obesity will have a large amount of fat accumulation around the liver, resulting in fatty liver. In addition, obese people can have metabolic problems, leaving the body in a state of high uric acid, causing gout or developing kidney disease.

7. Dermatosis


Obese people have weak peripheral circulation, slow skin response to external changes and poor resistance, and are prone to skin diseases such as eczema and dermatitis.


Obesity not only affects the image, but also brings hidden dangers to health. Clearly recognize the harm of obesity, control daily calorie intake, participate in more sports activities to help decompose fat and control weight within the normal range.
