The primary cause of extreme obesity and overweight is a disparity between energy consumption and expenditure. Obesity is technically described as the excess deposition of 20% or more body fat over a person’s ideal weight of body. The latter is an individual’s maximum healthy value, which is measured primarily based on age, build, height, and degree of muscular growth. Obesity, on the other hand, is diagnosed by comparing an individual’s weight to his or her height and calculating the BMI. The NIH
has set a maximum of 30 kg/m2 as the threshold for being considered obese. As a result, amid World Health Organization warnings, obesity is on the rise in children and adults around the world. Obesity’s rise, as well as the scope of related health problems, has significant ramifications for both people and public healthcare systems. Obesity is linked to increased chances of injury, sickness, and death, and it is one of the world’s most overlooked public health problems. Obesity is linked to cardiac problems, which are the primary cause of death globally especially hypertension and diabetes. However, the mechanisms underlying obesity-related hypertension and other metabolic disorders have yet to be thoroughly studied.We looked at the connection among obese and heart disease, specifically the biological mechanisms that link obese and hypertension, in this study.
