The famous proverbial saying “prevention is better than cure” means that it is better and smarter to stop an illness from happening rather than have to deal with a worse health situation later. Not taking care of initial symptoms could easily progress into something worse.
Other than health wise, prevention is cheaper too. There are a lot of actions that you can do on a daily and weekly basis to preserve your health and lower as much as possible the probability of getting sick. We are especially talking about exercise and healthy eating habits. New habits could increase our monthly budget but in the long run, these costs are nothing compared to curing some of the health issues that may arise.
Obesity is one of the major causes of a number of serious health problems, including heart disease and strokes, high blood pressure, abnormal cholesterol levels and last but not least type 2 diabetes.
Staying healthy is a top priority list and our daily choices can play a very determinant role. Not everything is in our control, but there are some things that we can do that can certainly make a difference between being healthy and unhealthy.
Diet and exercise are the most important factors that we can control and can impact our health heavily. Preventing disease and other complications later in life are amongst them.
Health risks of overweight and obesity
Type 2 diabetes
Type 2 diabetes occurs when your blood glucose is too high. Being overweight or have obesity highly affects this disease. Over time, high blood glucose leads to problems such as heart disease, stroke, kidney disease, eye problems and other health problems.
High blood pressure
High blood pressure or hypertension, is a condition in which blood flows through your blood vessels with a force greater than normal. High blood pressure raises your risk of heart attack, stroke and kidney disease.
Heart disease may affect your heart in different ways: heart attack, heart failure, sudden cardiac death, or an abnormal heart rhythm. High blood pressure, abnormal levels of blood fats, and high blood glucose levels may raise your risk for heart disease.
Stroke is a condition in which the blood supply to your brain is suddenly cut off, caused by a blockage or the bursting of a blood vessel in your brain or neck. High blood pressure is the leading cause of strokes.
Osteoarthritis is a common, long-lasting health problem that causes pain, swelling, and reduced motion in your joints. Being overweight or having obesity may raise your risk of getting osteoarthritis by putting extra pressure on your joints and cartilage.
Cancer is a collection of related diseases. In all types of cancer, some of the body’s cells begin to divide without stopping and spread into surrounding tissues. Overweight and obesity may raise your risk of developing certain types of cancer.
Emotional and social problems linked to obesity
Being overweight and having obesity are very frequently correlated to depression. This can lead to feelings of rejection, shame, or guilt and further worsening mental health problems.
Chemicals in the brain called “endorphins” make you feel happy and positive, and thease are triggered by most forms of exercise. There are indicators out there suggesting that proper diet and exercise are two major factors in overall mental health. Both reduce stress and can increase brain activity. Endorphin stimulation can also help prevent depression and raise self-esteem.
