Effect on health

Effect on health Photo Relationship between obesity and mental health disorders is not clear. However, overweight is a stigma and the obesity discrimination can lead to some mental disorders.Obesity can reduce your life expectancy by up to 9 years and many chronic diseases can be prevented by maintaining a healthy weight. Being overweight can also put extra pressure on joints and limbs, making activity quite difficult and sometimes any movement at all can be painful. Other physical problems caused by obesity are that obese women who become pregnant have a higher risk pregnancy that than of a healthy weight. Obese children and young people face the same health risks as adults. Whilst symptoms may not become apparent until later in life, in many cases, damage from being overweight as a child has already been done. Making it very important that the children reach a healthy weight as early as possible. In reality we are now seeing children so obese that they are suffering from conditions usually only associated with adults e.g. Type 2 Diabetes.
