The best approach according to doctor Akoury is the prevention aspect. If we could manage to keep distance from the scourge of overweight and obesity, we would be home and dry. However owing to the environment we live in this may have certain challengers some of whom we will be addressing as we progress into the discussion. Now back to why it has become necessary to defeat overweight and obesity, it is because besides being accompanied by chronic health complications, the spread and increase of overweight and obesity is becoming an epidemic in the global village. And more worrying is that this condition does not discriminate, everyone is vulnerable irrespective of their background socially, economically or otherwise.
Like I have said the epidemic of obesity cuts across all ages both children and adults are equal victims to the scourge. The danger of overweight and obesity is closely linked to various chronic health conditions including heart diseases (cardiovascular diseases), type 2 diabetes, hypertension, certain cancers, and sleep apnea or sleep-disordered breathing. The risks of obesity and in particular that of cardiovascular diseases (CVD) have been discussed in different forums and also documented in obese children cardiovascular diseases (CVD), it is also associated with reduced life expectancy. By now I hope that you are beginning to see and understand why it has become necessary to defeat overweight and obesity. And if we are in a agreement then let us proceed.
In one of our previous article I had stated that “the most important fact to note is that a variety of adaptations or alterations in cardiac structure and function do happen in the individual as adipose tissue accrues in excess volume.” Therefore the general observation is that, overweight or obesity is associated with numerous cardiac complications such as coronary heart disease, heart failure, and sudden death through its impact on the cardiovascular system. Having appreciated the reasons as to why we need to defeat the two conditions, we can categorically state that there is reasonable ground to worry that obesity is indeed associated with a wide range of health problems, and for the purpose of our discussion in this article we will be highlighting some points torching on some of the health conditions which are associated with obesity to help you make your own self-evaluation and take the most appropriate action in good time.
