The cause is the narrowing and / or blockage of the coronary arteries, the blood stops reaching the heart correctly. Obesity can also lead to heart failure. Heart failure is a serious disease in which the heart can not pump enough blood to meet the needs of the body.

An overweight or obese person is more likely to suffer from hypertension.

DIABETES OF TYPE 2:

Diabetes is a disease in which the pancreas does not work properly and can not produce enough insulin hormone. This is responsible for controlling glucose (sugar) levels in the blood and transforming this glucose into energy for the cells. This procedure is basic since, the foods that we consume transform them into glucose to obtain energy for the whole organism. Diabetes is one of the leading causes of premature death, coronary artery disease, stroke, kidney failure and blindness. Most people with type 2 diabetes are overweight.

ABNORMAL CONCENTRATIONS OF BLOODY FATS:

  • Elevated blood levels of triglycerides (a type of fat)
  • Low blood levels of HDL, the good cholesterol
  • Excess abdominal fat

Not all doctors agree with the definition or cause of the metabolic syndrome. The cause may be insulin resistance. Insulin is a hormone that your body produces to help convert sugar from food into energy for the body. If you have insulin resistance, an excess of blood sugar builds up, setting the stage for the onset of the disease.
