Aug 30, 2008
Obesity is a growing problem that affects millions of people all over the world. It's not just a problem on its own because it can, and will, lead to other health conditions. These health conditions can be deadly if the obesity isn't dealt with in time. The death rate in people who are overweight is far higher then those people who watch their weight and lead a healthy lifestyle

Any doctor will tell you to lose weight because of the health problems associated with obesity. Just by being 20% overweight can result in it affecting your health.

The health conditions that can ruin a person's health are talked about below. These are serious problems, and some of them can't be reversed even if you lose weight after they have affected you.

The biggest killer in overweight people is heart disease. Being obese puts so much pressure on the heart because it has to work harder in a body that is carrying more weight than it should be.

Strokes are another common problem for people that need to lose weight. Strokes can temporarily or permanently affect the use of limbs depending on the severity of the stroke.

Diabetes is a health condition that can bought on by obesity. Diabetes isn't just a condition that requires you to inject yourself with insulin every day, you can lose limbs as well.

Gout can effect overweight people more than healthy people.

High blood pressure is more common in obese people, and this can lead to heart disease and strokes.

Arthritis will be a problem for overweight people because of the pressure on the bone joints.

Overweight people will suffer from breathing problems that can lead to sleep apnea. This is where a person will stop breathing for short periods in their sleep, and in worst cases, will stop breathing for good.

Gallbladder disease, gall stones, and kidney stones. These are painful conditions that can lead to other problems.

Blood clots will form in the legs more commonly in people who are overweight. These clots can move from the legs to lungs in some cases which results in a pulmonary embolism.

Obesity is a health problem that no one needs to be suffering from. The more overweight you are the harder it becomes to lose weight, but it's not impossible. All you need is more will power, and a stronger desire to get healthy.

Getting help is a great way to start so you're not doing it alone. You can get inspiration and encouragement from people around you if others are involved in helping you succeed.
