Obesity is a chronic disease that is manifested by abnormal fat deposition in the body and excessive weight gain. Excess weight is a common cause of complexes, ridicule from passers-by, problems in personal life, serious health problems that can cause diseases of the musculoskeletal system, cardiovascular system, and also become a catalyst for many other pathologies that prevent you from enjoying a healthy, fulfilling life.
Fortunately, today there are highly effective methods for diagnosing and treating obesity, which can restore the correct metabolism in the body in a short time and lose weight. Therefore, it is very important to receive treatment for obesity by professional doctors who can effectively determine the cause of the problems and provide the correct treatment.
The main causes of obesity
In most cases, the development of obesity is caused by an imbalance in the supply of energy to the body from the food consumed and physical activity, ensuring its burning. However, the disease can be caused by a number of other reasons, such as: impaired healthy function of the digestive system, genetic pathologies and hormonal disruptions.
Excess calories entering the patient’s body are not excreted, but are converted and remain as fatty deposits accumulated in the fat depot (internal organs, abdominal wall, subcutaneous tissue) – this leads to a gradual or active increase in body weight, increasing the load on the musculoskeletal locomotor apparatus and organs, limiting motor skills and the efficiency of the whole organism.
The main causes of obesity include: a sedentary lifestyle, bad habits, genetic problems, non-observance of proper nutrition, a number of endocrine pathologies, psychogenic overeating, stress, lack of sleep, hormonal imbalance, including due to the intake of hormonal drugs and a number of other factors.
The main specific symptom is overweight caused by the deposition of fat on the abdomen, back, limbs, back of the head, hip joint and other parts of the body. Having found these symptoms, it is necessary to consult a doctor who will determine the source of the problem and provide treatment for obesity, allowing the person to return to a normal, comfortable life.
Obesity is divided into 4 main stages, with stages 1 and 2 are common. At these stages, the patient may feel excessive sleepiness, sweating, weakness, nausea, joint pain, spine pain, and shortness of breath. The 3rd and 4th stages of obesity are accompanied by acute physiological problems of the body, including the difficult work of the cardiovascular, digestive and respiratory systems.
