Diseases caused by obesity or comorbidities are:
HIGH INCREASED RISK (3 TIMES)
- Type 2 diabetes: high blood sugar.
- Hypertension: high blood pressure.
- Dyslipidemia: Hypercholesterolemia, increased blood cholesterol and / or hypertriglyceridemia, increased blood triglycerides (cause of visceral obesity – in the belly, which increases cardiovascular risk).
- Hyperuricemia: cause gout attacks.
- Metabolic syndrome: a combination of abdominal obesity, dyslipidemia and hypertension or diabetes.
- Ischemic heart disease: angina and myocardial infarction.
- Psychological problems: changes in self-esteem and depression.
- Heart failure.
- Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome – OSAS.
- Gallstones: stones in the gallbladder.
MODERATELY INCREASED RISK (2 TIMES)
- Polycystic Ovary (alterations of menstruation).
- Lumbar and other joints such as hips and knees pain.
- Cerebral stroke.
- Deep venous thrombosis.
- Increased anesthetic risk.
- Varicose veins in the lower limbs.
- Cancer of the esophagus, colon and rectum, gallbladder, kidney, prostate, uterus and breast.
- Hiatal hernia. Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease GERD (heartburn).
- Hepatic steatosis (fatty liver disease – NASH) and cirrhosis.
- Urinary incontinence.
- Menstrual disorders and infertility.
- Intracranial hypertension.
- Cellulitis, folliculitis and other skin infections.
- Fetal malformations.
Therefore, obesity conditions worsen quality of life and shorten life expectancy.
With the anthropometric data of the patient (weight, height, waist-hip circumference rate), blood pressure and other data from your latest blood tests we calculate the cardiovascular risk Q-SCORE, which predicts the risk of having a cardiac infarction in the next ten years. Keep in mind that the presence of obesity (especially if DIABETES is associated) determines an extraordinary increase in cardiovascular risk.
Diabesity decreases life expectancy in TEN years.
