Obesity and Heart Disease

Obesity is become a burning issue in both children and adults. Obesity can lead to conditions such as heart attack, type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and many more. In fact, obesity is an independent risk factor for heart diseases, and many studies have shown documentary evidence of CVD in obese children. Obesity can reduce life expectancy by causing many diseases, especially cardiovascular diseases by altering metabolic profile. Apart from altered metabolic profile, a variety of alterations can be seen in cardiac structure and function occurs in the individual as adipose tissue accumulates in excess amounts. Hence, obesity may affect the heart through its influence on known risk factors such as dyslipidaemia, hypertension, glucose intolerance, inflammatory markers, and the prothrombotic state, in addition to as-yet-unrecognized mechanisms.
