High Risk of Suffering from Heart Disease for Obese Men

From 30 years ago, John Aenlefu, along with his research team, has been carrying out a follow-up study in which 758 Swedish men were investigated. At that time, respondents were 50 years old, they are non-diabetic people and never been taken to hospital due to heart disease, stroke or related diseases. Among all the respondents, 955 people were normal weight, 64 were suffering from metabolic syndrome; and another 707 were overweight. Besides, there are 125 people with metabolic syndrome patients, 96 people with obesity and 66 people were suffering from metabolic syndrome. In the next 30 years, 681 respondents had suffered from heart disease, stroke or related complications and 845 respondents died. The researchers found that men who were overweight and obese had higher risk of suffering from heart disease or stroke, even if not suffering from metabolic syndrome. Among respondents not suffering from metabolic syndrome, for overweight persons, the rate of suffering from heart disease and stroke was higher with 52% than normal weight while the obesity of these are doubled.

Aenlefu’s words were quoted at Reuters: Our research shows that over weight and obese males who are not suffering from metabolic syndrome face a high risk of a heart attack, stroke and related diseases. This is the opposite point to the previous findings, which have shown that obesity with no metabolic syndrome is a healthy state. Metabolic syndrome symptoms include high blood pressure, abdominal fat accumulation, abnormal cholesterol levels, high triglycerides and high blood sugar. This syndrome has health risks for both obesity and normal weight people.

Finally, Aenlefu gave his suggestion. For overweight and obese men, regardless of whether there is the metabolic syndrome, weight loss is a goal. He also noted that although the metabolic syndrome is common among overweight people, however, normal weight does not mean heart health. The next step projected by Aenlefu is to research whether there is a similar situation for women. Barry Franklin, spokesman of the American Heart Association, said the reason of overweight males face an increased risk of disease is not entirely clear, but the study carried by Aenlefu did not involve physical exercise factors. Above all, overweight adults should be aware that it is a positive impact on health by improving eating habits and keeping physical exercises.
