Obesity, Diabetes, Cardiovascular Diseases, Gastrointestinal Diseases

Being overweight then the required or obese affects an individual to many medical problems including diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, constipation, depression and some types of cancer. Genes can affect the amounts and types of food that we prefer to eat. We can observe that some people stay thin whatever they seem to eat and some become obese. Research shows that obesity tends to run in families and studies with twins and adopted children have shown that genes play a key role in this. The greatest risk is for diabetes where a body mass index above 35 kgs increases the risk by 93-fold in women and by 42 kgs in men. The risk of coronary heart disease is rapidly increased to 86% by a 20% rise in weight in males. Elevation of blood pressure, hyperlipidemia and high risk from coronary heart disease are seen.
