Detection of obesity, risk factors associated with obesity on coronary heart disease.
Obesity is a primary health problem caused by an increasingly sedentary lifestyle and increased food consumption. Obesity is associated not only with metabolic disorders, but also with behavioral changes such as sleep disturbances, mood disturbances, and disturbed sexual behaviour. Obesity is also considered a neurobiological disease as it is also associated with neuronal damage in the human cerebellum and hippocampus. Therefore, anti-obesity drugs are justified to produce some of their action at the CNS centers that regulate body weight. Obesity is associated with many concurrent risk factors for Coronary Artery Disease (CAD) and CHD mortality.Author(s): Yannis Li
