Consequences

Obese and overweight people have 50% - 100% increased risk of dying prematurely.

Obese and overweight people are at an increased risk of developing any and all of these conditions:

  • Diabetes (type 2)
  • Joint problems (e.g., arthritis)
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Gallbladder problems
  • Certain types of cancer (breast, uterine, colon)
  • Digestive disorders 
  • Breathing difficulties (e.g., sleep apnoea, asthma)
  • Psychological problems such as depression
  • Problems with fertility and pregnancy
  • Urinary Incontinence
  • Depression, anxiety, and social isolation

In addition to the above health risks which obesity can cause, day-to-day living can be difficult, painful, embrassing and frustrating and more costly. Below are just a handful of issues facing obese and overweight people.

  • Normal tasks can become harder when you are obese as movement is restricted
  • Simple tasks can see you tire quickly and become short of breath
  • Public transport, car and aeroplane seats, theme park rides, chairs in restaurants, and public phone booths can become too small
  • Maintaining personal hygiene may become more challenging
