According to the CDC National Center for Health Statistics (NCHS) data brief, over one-third (36.5%) of U.S. adults suffer from obesity.
Obesity can lead to several serious diseases. Every year, thousands of people die from obesity related medical problems in the United States. Take a look at this chart. (Source: CDC)
Here are some of the major problems that result due to obesity:
High cholesterol and fat levels in the body can impede the blood flow through blood vessels in the body and lead to cardiac arrests and strokes.
Type 2 diabetes is directly related to obesity. This kind of diabetes can make a person resistant to insulin and adversely affect the regulation of blood sugar in the human body.
Overweight people suffer from pain in their knees and hips due to the excess weight that they have to endure. This condition usually deteriorates as a person grows older and can be severely debilitating in the later stages of a person’s life.
Obesity is also responsible for sleep apnea. Overweight people find it harder to breathe when they are asleep because of the extra weight crushing their lungs. Since sleep apnea also causes sleep deprivation, it can lead to several other physical and psychological problems.
