Weight Related Health Issues
Is your excessive weight causing you health problems?
Being over weight can increase your risk of developing many potentially serious health conditions, some of which you may have already developed.
- osteoarthritis – a condition involving pain and stiffness in your joints
- type 2 diabetes – a condition that causes a person’s blood sugar level to become too high
- high blood pressure
- high cholesterol (where fatty deposits narrow your arteries), which can lead to coronary heart disease and stroke
- gallstones – small stones, usually made of cholesterol, that form in the gallbladder
- gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD) – where stomach acid leaks out of the stomach and into the oesophagus (gullet)
- sleep apnoea – a condition that causes interrupted breathing during sleep, which can lead to daytime sleepiness with an increased risk of road traffic accidents, as well as a greater risk of diabetes, high blood pressure and heart disease
- liver disease and kidney disease
- reduced fertility
- pregnancy complications, such as gestational diabetes or pre-eclampsia (when a woman experiences a potentially dangerous rise in blood pressure during pregnancy)
Suffering from any of these?
It can quickly escalate into a vicious cycle:- being over weight can lead to a variety of health problems, which in turn can often make it difficult to find the motivation to exercise or eat healthily, which in turn leads to even more weight gain… and so the cycle continues.
Obesity reduces life expectancy by an average of 3 to 10 years. Is this what you really want?
