April 29, British Sky News reported that a recent study published at the European Obesity Conference (ECO) said that people with severe obesity were 50% more likely to die early than people with normal weight.
Researchers and experts have reported that overweight and obesity are closely related to the risk of serious illness after analysing the health, death and disease data of British adults.
Haas, the author of the study, said:’Overweight carries a high risk for type 2 diabetes and sleep apnea… Over the past 30 years, the global obesity population has almost tripled (105 million in 1975 and 650 million in 2016), which has a serious impact on public health.
It is reported that one of the indicators of obesity is body mass index (BMI). It’s a measure of how healthy your weight is by your height and weight. For most adults, the ideal BMI is between 18.5 and 24.9.
However, the results showed that the risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus was 12 times that of normal people and 22 times that of sleep apnea; the risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus was almost 9 times that of normal people and 12 times that of sleep apnea in people with BMI between 35 and 40; the risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus in people with BMI between 30 and 35 was 12 times that of normal people; and the risk of type 2 diabetes mellitus in people with BMI between 30 and 35 was 22 times that of normal people. The risk of diabetes is five times higher than that of normal people, and the risk of heart failure is 70% higher than that of normal people, while the risk of BMI between 25 and 30 is more than twice that of normal people.
The results also showed that weight gain was associated with hypertension, heart rate arrhythmia and dyslipidemia (abnormal levels of cholesterol and other fats in the blood).
It is reported that people with BMI between 40 and 45 are three times more likely to suffer from heart failure, hypertension and dyslipidemia than normal people.
