This is a well-known fact that obesity carries lots of health hazards with itself. But not everyone knows what are the exact diseases or risks that are associated with obesity. It is that medical condition where body fat exceeds in your body and you become more prone to diseases, especially problems related to pregnancy. If you have an unhealthy lifestyle and don’t do exercise on a regular basis, then you have higher chances of being prone to obesity. Eating junk food in large quantities, no exercising, eating at irregular timings, and overconsumption of food are some of the causes of obesity. However, in some cases, hormonal imbalances, and medications are also seen as the causative agents of obesity. ARC helps individuals fight obesity and also offers relevant medical treatments for overcoming such medical conditions.

How to Determine if Obesity is Making you Prone to Other Diseases?

There are three things that help decide whether obesity is behind the occurrence of other diseases in your body or not.

Body Mass Index: BMI or body mass index is calculated based on your body weight and height and helps to estimate the amount of body fat. If your BMI exceeds or is equal to 40.0, then you are highly at risk and more prone to diseases or risk associated with it.

Waist Size: Women whose waist size is larger than their hips are more prone to obesity and its associated risks. It is said that women who have a waist size of equal to or more than 35 inches, then they are at high risk and can develop an increased risk of heart diseases and also type 2 diabetes.

Risk Factors: Physically inactive, smoking, hypertension, high blood pressure, and having a family member with heart diseases are some of the other risk factors that help in determining whether another disease occurring in one’s body is due to obesity or not.
