Effects of Overweight

The effects of overweight are far reaching and beyond what the physical eye can see. Overweight mostly is an effect of too much fat that gets stored in a subcutaneous layer of the skin. This gets to spread to blood vessels and deposit around the arteries reducing the lumen of the vessels that affect the ease of blood flow in the vessels. The reduced blood flow affects oxygen delivery around the body organs and tissues. Tissues like the cardiac muscles (Muscles of the heart), brain and lungs function with a certain threshold of Oxygen gas.

Poor oxygen delivery to tissues results in these tissues working extra hard to cater for the compensation of the extra oxygen demand. The extra functionality is a strain to the activities of these tissues and may result in the inability to carry well their required physiological functions. The strain results in enlargement of the organs a condition mostly described as tissue atrophy. Depending on an organ and the subsequent body activities, the medical effect on the organ can be detrimental and take any extreme form. Some of these effects include cancer, organ failure that can lead to multi-organ failure and on the extreme, death.

Other effects of overweight include cosmetic effects, working efficiency and the need for support to undertake regular life activities. Overweight can similarly affect your job capability and the ability to seek employment and get employed.
