Stiff, achy joints are not just the result of getting older. Being overweight places added stress on your joints, gradually wearing away the cartilage that protects them. As the cartilage degrades, your joint bones grind against each other creating pain and inflammation, and the inflammation degrades the cartilage even more.
Type 2 diabetes
Being obese, with a body mass index (BMI) over 30, combined with a sedentary lifestyle, can lead to type 2 diabetes. If left untreated, it can create severe complications such as blindness and the potential loss of a limb.
If you gag or choke in your sleep, you may have sleep apnea caused by fat around your neck and mouth that obstructs your airway. Untreated, sleep apnea robs you of restorative sleep and raises the risk of a heart attack or stroke.
Heart disease, stroke and cancer
Even if you don’t suffer from sleep apnea, being overweight greatly increases your chances of developing one of these life-threatening conditions.
The good news is that at South Florida Men’s Health we offer a variety of weight-loss options, in addition to ED treatment in Weston, FL. Call us today at 954-376-4156 to schedule a consultation.
