Obesity May Pose Cardiac Threat To Women In Later Life - Says Study

It is a widely established fact that obesity has always had argumentative effects on individual's well-being. Based on preceding readings, researchers have strongly given emphasis to how obesity and heart concerns are unequivocally associated. But as for now, various study authors have once again reassured how weight problems can directly cause an individual to tangle in an unhealthy lifestyle.

Initiating the research and validating it, Dr Stephanie Chiuve, assistant professor of medicine at Harvard Medical School, and lead author of the study claims that women who are obese during their early adulthood are more susceptible to cardiac deaths, later in life.

Daily Mail quotes,

'Excess weight or substantial weight gain may have an early or cumulative impact on the risk of sudden cardiac death that is not completely erased by weight loss later in life.'

The study has led to a deduction that it is imperative to have a vigorous, robust lifestyle which can only be accomplished if a body manifests itself on the basis of excessive sweating on a regular basis.

The study incorporated researchers analyzing data from the Nurses' health study, and followed 72,484 healthy women from 1980 to 2012. The participants were asked to provide their respective weights and heights, on the basis of which examiners explored the relationship between BMI, weight gain and cardiac concerns including non-fatal strokes and death from coronary attacks.

As an integral part of the examination, the 32-year period displayed 445 cases of sudden cardiac death, 1,286 cases of fatal coronary heart disease and 2,272 non-fatal heart attacks.

The team strongly established that women who had a higher BMI during their early adulthood are more prone to sudden cardiac death, caused by an abnormal rhythmic movement of the heart.

The end of the study revolved around the fact that women who are obese and have BMI more than 30 are twice as vulnerable in terms of sudden cardiac deaths as compared to women with a standard, robust BMI.

Women who have attained more weight during their early adulthood were thoroughly analyzed and researchers have sustained that the presence of significant weight and BMI might impede their health, making them more prone towards attaining cardiac alarms.

The elevated risk of obesity and its unavoidable link with obesity has emanated multiple menaces and the perils of critical cardiac concerns, sudden death being the most alarming one. Scientists have therefore recommended pre-emptive measures and approaches that can lower the risks of cardiac death, later in life.

Exercising on a regular basis along with keeping up with a balanced diet can catalyze the healthy retreat for individuals.
