Health And Obesity – What Is The Truth?

A new study shows that obesity increases the risk of cardiovascular disease in women, no matter if they are metabolically healthy for decades.

Obesity affects almost all of the cardiovascular disease risk factors, such as high blood pressure, excess cholesterol and diabetes. The study suggests that even individuals in good metabolic health may benefit from early behavioural management to improve their diet and increased physical activity to guard against progression to poor metabolic health.

Researchers also found that the majority of metabolically healthy women developed either high blood pressure, excess cholesterol or diabetes as they got older, even if they were normal weight. Therefore, the importance of metabolic health in women across all BMI categories is important.
