Does obesity contribute to heart disease and diabetes?

 

cassie

Yes to both, it can contribute and make it worse too.

Yup. Obesity is now recognized as one of the contributing factors in heart attacks. Obese people are more typical to have high blood pressure, high levels of cholesterol and high blood sugar. Obese people are also more likely to become diabetic

when you are obese, you usually have high blood sugar, high cholesterol which in turn contribute to having a weakened heart. Diabetic people are also sometimes obese because of the amounts of food the consume. This usually includes sweets so they are all related in one way or another.

yes, it does, so better watch your weight!

fat can constrict and block arteries and this will make the heart work harder in order to get blood to where it is needed...so yes, obesity, diabetis and heart disease are related in more ways

look at it this way, when you dont exercise, you get fat when you get fat, you eat lots of unhealthy and often sweet foods raising your blood sugar and so, your heart works double time to deliver blood. this overwork causes the heart to get strained.

so to avoid all three ailments better get that butt in shape and exercise!!!
