The accumulation of excess fat within the human body leads to the chronic disorders of obesity or excessive weight. It is a growing concern across the world as it is one of the major underlying factors for many other health issues of other vital organs such as kidneys, heart, bones, and reproductive organs.
Obesity can occur due to a variety of causes, some of the most common being:
- Having a sedentary lifestyle.
- Suffering from depression and hypothyroidism.
- Excessive consumption of fat-rich or junk foods.
- Obesity is likely to affect women with polycystic ovarian syndrome and those who are around the age of attaining menopause.
If not treated immediately, obesity can lead to further complications like heart disorders or asthma.
