The Dangers Of ObesityDr. Nitin Gupte
The Diseases Associated With Obesity!
When I started my Slimming Centre in Pune, over three decades ago, the goal was not only to help people lose weight and stay slim and healthy for lifetime, but also to help them prevent putting on weight unnecessarily, during different stages of their lives and help them prevent or overcome all the diseases those are caused by obesity.
After all, staying slim is so much easier than losing weight, even if it has to be done in an excellent slimming centre.
Obese people are never fully healthy. Obesity and the faulty lifestyle associated with it, lead to a very wide range of diseases, some of them fatal.
The obese tend to be irritable, stressed out, depressed and may have poor self-esteem. Their energy levels are low and they tire quickly. There are pains and aches everywhere. A backache and joint pains are common. Spondylosis, prolapsed discs, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, varicose veins, cholecystitis (inflammation of the gall bladder), and some hernias are prevalent in the obese.
High blood pressure, diabetes, coronary heart disease and cerebral strokes (paralysis) are frequently associated with obesity.
Amongst obese ladies PCOD, infertility, difficult pregnancies and labour, repeated abortions and complications during a caesarean section are common.
The obese are more prone to certain cancers.
They also are at a greater risk of complications during surgeries.
Abdominal obesity can lead to the dangerous triad of hypertension (high blood pressure), dyslipidemia (high levels of cholesterol and blood fats) and type-2 diabetes. These three together can lead to coronary heart disease, myocardial infarctions and also death.
So if you are obese, wake up and lose weight, or it’s going to destroy your health sooner than later!
Healthy weight loss can help prevent or reverse all the above grave diseases. And healthy weight loss is possible only if you slim down on normal, everyday food and exercises you can take up long term. That is the only way to lose weight and stay slim and healthy for a lifetime!
Hence the importance of choosing the right slimming centre!
