Generally in OBESITY, levels of fat circulating in the blood are high
(lipids) and can be divided in:
The hypercholesterolaemia, which is an abnormality of lipids and appears when
the levels of cholesterol in blood are overhead of 200 mg/dl.
The hypertriglyceridemia is another abnormality of lipids and appears when the
levels of triglycerides in the blood are overhead of 150 mg/dl.
The lipoproteins are a part of the lipids that are combined with proteins and
are divided generally in high density lipoproteins (HDL) and low density lipoproteins
(LDL) that are the most important for the prediction of arteriosclerosis of the
coronary arteries (heart). Equally, there exist the intermediate lipoproteins
(IDL) and the lipoproteins of very low density (VLDL), which do not have so many
influence in the forecast of coronary disease.
In obesity you can find more commonly the mixed hyperlipidemia, in which
they can find high levels of several of the lipids mentioned in the previous
paragraph and others can be in normal limits.
When the levels of uric acid in
the blood rise overhead of 8 mg/dl, the kidney is incapable to eliminate it in
its entirety, and there started forming crystals of the same one that are
accumulated (tophus) and settle in the joints. Generally they appear in the big
toe, but also they can appear in other joints and this entity is known as Gout.
Due to overweight in
OBESITY, every time movement is more difficult, is more difficult to move
across, upstairs and downstairs. The muscles that support and mobilize our body
are known as skeletal muscles, they are weakening and their volume diminishing
presenting muscular hypotrophy.
The same problem of overweight caused by the OBESITY spoils the joints and
diminishes mobility and for the same thing diminishes the traffic of the liquid
synovial and diminishes their nourishment contribution, causing arthritis in the
lowest members of the vertebral column, being able to present easily an
inter-vertebral disc hernia.
One of the factors that are
more important and that increase the problem of OBESITY, is the loss of the self-esteem, which every time is more intense and as consequence falls down in
depression that lowers even more the esteem and makes us fall down in a
deeper depression and some persons try to compensate the above mentioned
situation using the food as an inducement for their problem creating a
