There are various complications that can occur in the body of a obese person due to obesity. Some of the health complications can be fatal. This is the reason obese people are at a higher risk of getting various health disorders. Due to the affluent lifestyle that is prevalent these days, the number of excessively obese people is on the rise. Proportionately, there is an increase in the number of people suffering from health disorders like diabetes, hypertension etc.

Reasons for obesity:

The reason for the obesity can be due to systemic disorders. Some people are genetically prone to be fat. This is because of heredity. Some other people may have been following a wrong eating pattern. This can lead to obesity. Certain metabolic disorders themselves can also lead to excessive obesity. There are other causes of obesity too.

Health disorders that are caused by obesity

1. Heart disease:
People who are obese have a far greater chance of getting angina pectoris or dying suddenly. This danger is directly proportional to the obesity of the person. This means that as the person becomes more obese, the risk of angina increases.

2. Work load: The work load on the heart is more as the person becomes obese. This increased work load on the heart can start to increase the blood pressure. And this blood pressure hike can in turn lead to increased risk of heart attacks. Thus it is a vicious cycle where each complication can lead to another one and finally the affected person becomes very sick.

3. Gall bladder: The chances of an obese person getting gall bladder disease is far greater if the person is obese.

4. Diabetes: The obesity can make the body not to utilize the sugar in the system. This leads to increased diabetes in the person who is obese. Studies have found that people who are obese have a lesser ability to keep their sugar levels under control.

5. Liver: The liver and pancreas are weakened by the huge amounts of stored fat. This reduces the normal functioning ability of these organs.

6. Surgery: Performing a surgery on an obese person is very difficult as compared to a person whoo is muscular. The reason for this is that there are large layers of fat that have to be crossed before the internal organs are reached for the surgery.

7. Stroke: Obese people have an increased risk of other diseases like stroke. Stroke or cerebro vascular accidents are very common in people who are obese and also have other risk factors.

8. Kidney disease: The risk of an obese person dying of kidney disease is double than the risk present for a person who is not obese.

These are some of the major complications that can be seen in a person who is excessively obese. Obesity directly or indirectly affects all the major systems of the body and can lead to major health disorders. Obesity has to be controlled for the individual to be at a lesser risk of health disorders and also death. Once a person reduces the weight, a lot of risk factors also reduce proportionately.
