Arteriosclerosis

Coronary Disease

Venous Insufficiency

 There is a very direct relationship between arterial hypertension and obesity which is one of the most important factors for its development.

 People over 45 years of age run a much higher risk.

 When the waist-hip measurement is over 0.80 the frequency of cardiovascular and arterial pressure problems is greater, and generally it is the lower numbers that go up first.

 Cardiac insufficiency presents itself when the heart is insufficient to allow the blood to circulate throughout the organism, having to make a great effort against the resistance that an obese body can stand.

 Aterosclerosis is the hardening of the arteries that together with obesity and the excess of circulating fat in the blood more rapidly obstructs all of the arteries especially the coronary arteries which are the ones that irrigate the heart.

 Obesity causes the veins especially those in the inferior members to make a great effort to take the blood to the hearts periphery and they become more insufficient each time, thus presenting an insufficiency of veins which become varicose inasmuch as the walls get weaker and weaker.
