Carrying extra kilos takes a toll on health. Obesity is the rootcause of many other health problems like diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, arthritis, sleep apnea, respiratory problems and more.
Sedentary lifestyles, irregular eating habits, and physical inactivity not only increase your weight disproportionately but also makes you prone to metabolic risk factors such as obesity, hypertension, diabetes, and dyslipidemia. A high reading on the BMI scale (<35) can cause the liver tissue to be inflamed and damage the liver cells. Obesity can reduce a body’s resistance to insulin keeping the levels of blood sugar and blood fat (cholesterol) high.
Obesity is an epidemic and a BMI index of 35 or more is considered morbid levels of obesity— something which requires clinical intervention. If relying on workouts and regulated diet has not transformed you into a fit individual, maybe it’s time to consider an alternate approach. Before you give up, why not consult a specialist. You would be surprised to know that most bariatric surgery patients maintain successful weight-loss in the long-term.
