Heart and Obesity
can also be called as being overweight. The exact definition of obesity remains
controversial. Being obese can raise blood cholesterol and triglyceride
levels. Low LDL levels rise to coronary heart disease. Obesity
is intimately intertwined with multiple health conditions that underlie
cardiovascular disease including high blood pressure, diabetes, and abnormal
blood cholesterol. In addition, weight gain is a frequent consequence of
heart-damaging lifestyle choices such as lack of exercise and a fat-laden diet.
Obesity also can lead to heart
failure. This is a serious condition in which your heart can't pump enough
blood to meet your body's needs.
