 Complications Overview

TRANSCRIPT

Lt Col Reynolds
The consequences of obesity go beyond excess body fat because it can lead to other complications as well. In fact, obesity has been linked to consequences such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, kidney disease, and certain cancers.

Lt Col Phillips
For example, obese women are more likely than other women to develop breast cancer, uterine cancer, cervical cancer, and gallbladder cancer. Obese men are more likely to develop colon cancer, rectal cancer, and prostate cancer.

Other health problems such as sleep disorders, liver disease, and pregnancy problems, have been linked to obesity as well.
