As we all know, obesity not only makes the body ugly, but also increases the risk of other diseases. So, who is prone to obesity?
What is obesity?
Obesity is a disease caused by excessive body fat accumulation. Due to obesity, patients often have metabolic disorders such as diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, fatty liver, high uric acid, polycystic ovary syndrome, and sleep apnea. disease. Yang Jingge said that the diagnosis of obesity is based on the BMI index, and when the BMI index exceeds 27.5, it can be defined as obesity.
“Obesity is generally divided into two categories: simple obesity and secondary obesity. The cause of simple obesity is because the patient eats too much and exercises too little, and the cause of secondary obesity is due to the appearance of other organs in the patient’s body. Disease, which in turn induces obesity. Therefore, different types of obesity patients generally need different treatments to help them lose weight. “
In addition, many people in life think of obesity as a sign of overnutrition, but it is not. Yang Jingge said that the vast majority of obese patients have combined nutritional deficiencies, such as the lack of combined vitamin D deficiency and the reduction of combined albumin. Therefore, obesity is not a manifestation of excess nutrition. On the contrary, it may be a manifestation of nutritional deficiency.
Who is susceptible to obesity?
Yang Jingge said that the basic reason for suffering from obesity is mainly the imbalance between calorie intake and consumption, that is, the calorie intake in the body is more, but the consumption is less, which will cause obesity for a long time. As a result, obesity can occur in all populations, including at different ages.
“Compared to people engaged in manual labor, people who are not engaged in manual labor are more likely to suffer from obesity, such as people who have been sitting in the office for a long time and have no exercise habits, etc. In addition, people who enter the middle-aged and elderly stages have a faster metabolic rate due to their bodies Factors such as slowness are also more prone to obesity. “
Does obesity inherit?
The main causes of obesity are similar to many diseases, most of which are caused by eating habits and living habits. But in addition, genetic genes are also one of the causes of obesity. “Genes play an important role in many diseases. In addition to common diseases such as tumors, they also include obesity. Therefore, if both parents have obesity, their children will have a significantly higher chance of suffering from obesity. “
No matter what kind of factors cause obesity, if you do not actively lose weight, it is easy to induce a series of diseases, such as metabolic diseases, nausea tumors, sleep apnea syndrome, polycystic ovary syndrome and so on. Yang Jingge suggested that everyone should control diet and exercise in daily life, and prevent obesity by reducing fat intake and accelerating fat burning.
