Researches regarding obesity show that being overweight has direct connection with the mental health, body image issues and some of the hormonal imbalance tendencies. So the question stands that is being underweight worse? The answer is yes. Obesity doesn’t refer to be overweight only. It is about being underweight too. The effect of this abnormal health on mental situations can be ignored at once, but at times this may lead to frustration and depression.
Yes! People suffering from obesity are more prone to many mental disorders. At some stage it could be anxiety, again at some point it may be depression or aggressiveness. People make jokes about the obese people and laugh at them, make mimics of them. Persons having strong heart may take over the awkward situations for a certain time period but it can’t always be the same. This may decrease self esteem, increase social discrimination. This in turn would restrict the sufferere to mix up with the society. He or she is expected to lock him/ her within the four walls. This may lead to severe mental imbalance like suicides or criminal actions.
Obese men and women are lesser physically active. Both in the social life and personal life they are inefficient and slow. This means they are far away fromthemselves due to the obesity. The whole life would come under the shelter of obesity and this tendency might make them the biggest enemy.
Physical activity allows blood circulation, means more pure blood, and means higher metabolic rates, means feeling more fit and encouraged. But all these are absent in an obese, which means the mental health has direct impact of its own. If the physical exercise isn’t there, then the all the body organs which work at their best with regular exercises such as lungs, heart, kidney, gastric system would get damaged with time.
Severe symptoms like high blood pressure, heart attacks, leg swellings, respiratory diseases etc are more likely to be seen in the obese people. We have discussed so long on the side effects of obesity. But still we need some ideas about how it happens. If we know about the cause to a disease then we can prevent it to come to us rather than going for treatment and spending bucks for it.
One of the important causes is hormonal imbalance. You can observe some people that they would not have consume that much of food but still they are obese beyond expectation. This is the effect of the hormones. Anyhow whatever and how less they would be consuming, the hormones conserve almost all of them to the fats and store them. That’s why we can some of the teenagers to be very thick while at that age any child should be lean and thin. If any teenager or child is getting obese then the parents should visit the physicians.
It happens at times that if the patient is suffering from a trauma that needed a long time bed rest ten the person gets obese. But after getting out of the bed and continuing the normal life, that person still finds difficult to get back to the previous shape. This is the side effects of the high dose drugs being used for months.
