Is Obesity Life-Threatening?

There is no question anymore about the relation between overweight and mortality rate (see chart below).

In fact, obesity is linked to many life-threatening diseases such as:

  • Heart diseases
  • Type II diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Certain cancers (colon, breast, stomach…)

Being overweight or obese also raises the risk for other medical problems such as:

  • Osteoarthritis (joint problems)
  • Sleep apnea (breathing disorders)
  • Infertility
  • Depression...

A serious solution for such overweight and obesity related diseases is the Weight Loss Surgery. Studies have shown that by helping you lose your excess weight, the Weight Loss Surgery helps you also prevent or significantly reduce your obesity-related health problems.
