Obese People not at Risk for Heart Disease, Diabetes

The researchers are now saying that obese people are not at risk for heart disease and diabetes are those with normal metabolic profiles. Obesity is usually associated with increased risk for heart disease and type 2 diabetes, but in the absence of high cholesterol and blood pressure, not all obese people are destined to develop heart and blood vessels that can lead to diabetes and heart attack.
According to Andre van Beek, MD, PhD who co-authored the study from the Netherlands, "Some obese people have a normal cardiovascular risk, and they do not have an increased risk of heart disease and blood vessels. He adds that frequent monitoring risk factors is important and that the percentage of obese people who do not have to worry about heart disease and diabetes is low.
Researchers from the University Medical Center Groningen, Groningen, the Netherlands looked at the 1325 obese participants of the 8356 Dutch PREVEND (Prevention of kidney and vascular disease Endstage). The results showed that some obese people were found to be at risk for heart disease and diabetes but the percentage was small.
Among the participants, ages 28 to 75 years, only 90 were obese health metabolic profiles indicates that they are unlikely to be targeted as a high risk of heart attack or diabetes.
Of the 90 obese individuals, only one developed heart disease for 71 / 2 years, finding that researchers say is comparable to those whose weight was normal.
Although obese people are not at risk of heart disease who have normal blood pressure and cholesterol, may be protected, the researchers said that obesity can lead to other health problems should be noted, including diseases of the joints and muscle complaints. The new findings show obesity also contributes to poor sexual health. They also note there are only a small percentage of obese people who are not at risk for heart disease and diabetes.
