What 7 health conditions are associated with extra abdominal obesity?
Extra abdominal obesity, also known as central obesity or visceral obesity, refers to the accumulation of excess fat around the abdominal region. This type of obesity has been associated with several health conditions, including:
- Cardiovascular disease: Excess abdominal fat is a risk factor for cardiovascular disease, including heart attacks and stroke.
- Type 2 diabetes: Central obesity is strongly associated with insulin resistance and an increased risk of developing type 2 diabetes.
- High blood pressure: Abdominal obesity is associated with increased blood pressure, which can lead to hypertension.
- Dyslipidemia: Central obesity is associated with increased levels of triglycerides and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, which can increase the risk of developing dyslipidemia.
- Sleep apnea: Excess abdominal fat can interfere with breathing during sleep, leading to sleep apnea. A breathing machine may relieve symptoms, but losing excess weight helps deal with the causes.
- Cancer: Central obesity has been linked to an increased risk of several types of cancer, including prostate cancer (every 10 cm increase in waist circumference increases the odds by 7%), breast cancer, colorectal cancer, and pancreatic cancer.
- Osteoarthritis: Extra weight can put stress on the joints, leading to osteoarthritis in the knees, hips, and other weight-bearing joints. Losing excess weight can reduce pain and increase freedom of movement.
