Adiposity means pathological obesity that can affect men, women and children, without distinction of social class. In men and women there is talk of adiposity when the BMI is between 30 and 40 and of serious adiposity when the BMI is greater than 40. If you have such a value, we advise you to make an appointment with your family doctor to check health status, blood pressure and blood values. Cardiovascular disease is often associated with a high BMI. In this case, the distribution of body fat also plays a fundamental role. In people who have an "apple" build, most of the fat reserves are deposited in the abdominal region and therefore also around the internal organs. They are therefore more subject to the risk of future cardiovascular diseases. People with a pear shape, where fat pads typically accumulate on the hips and thighs, are less at risk.
If too much energy is introduced into the body, therefore more than it is able to consume, this turns into fat. Over time, therefore, some excess pounds accumulate. Further reasons for such a high weight gain also include metabolic diseases, such as hypothyroidism or diabetes, as well as hormonal changes in pregnancy or menopause.
If you suffer from severe adiposity / adiposity it is absolutely necessary that you reduce your body weight. In this way you will not only lighten your musculoskeletal system but, with every kilo less, you will decrease the risk of cardiovascular diseases, cancer, diabetes, gout, heart attack or stroke.
