Obesity anxiety is well guaranteed. Anxiety is not only related to a person’s physical appearance, but most importantly to the multiple organ systems affected. Most major organ systems from head to toe are affected by obesity.
Starting from the head (emotions) have a psychological social effect such as weak self-esteem and frustration. There are also neurological problems – pseudotumor cerebri. This is a process that affects the brain and the tumor appears, but it is not. Fortunately this is reversible.
Reconciliation of the pulmonary system in the chest cavity leads to the occurrence of asthma and exercise intolerance. Physiological changes in the cardiovascular system include dyslipidemia (high blood cholesterol and triglycerides), high blood pressure, chronic inflammation, and endothelial dysfunction (endothelial lining of blood vessels) leading to reduced vasodilation. Endothelial dysfunction “is associated with most cardiovascular diseases such as hypertension, coronary artery disease, chronic heart failure, peripheral artery disease, diabetes and chronic renal failure” (Andemann & Schiffrin, 2004).
Glomerulosclerosis (stain the small blood vessels of the kidney, glomeruli, functional units of the kidney that filter urine from the blood) [WebMD]) Affects the renal system.
The endocrine system is made up of glands that produce and secrete hormones that regulate body growth, metabolism (the body’s physical and chemical processes) and sexual growth and function. Hormones are released into the bloodstream and can affect one or more organs throughout the body (emedicinehealth). The endocrine system is closely linked to the nervous system, and cannot escape the scourge of insulin resistance, type 2 diabetes, and obesity seen in abnormal puberty events.
Obesity on the gastrointestinal system results in gallbladder and steatohepatitis (inflammation of the liver due to fat buildup).
The musculoskeletal system faces a number of problems including a slipped capital femoral epiphysis (this is the problem of the hip that begins if the epiphysis (growing end) slips from the ball of the hip joint of the femur (thigh bone)); Blunt’s disease (shin bone (tibia) development disorder, in which the lower leg turns inward, resembling a bowling [MedlinePlus]); And excessive pronunciation (flat feet, or the phenomenon when the arch of the foot tends to become flat over time).
All of these disruptions in multiple organ systems can have serious negative consequences for obese individuals. Prevention is better than cure, but the good news is that obesity is a reversible disease process.
