Metabolic Syndrome Rate Stabilizing
A cluster of health problems — collectively known as metabolic syndrome — puts many at possible risk for heart disease and stroke. The good news? Rates for this condition appear to be stabilizing in the US.
Weight Loss May Relieve Urinary Problems
If you've got metabolic syndrome, you may have a raised risk for urinary tract symptoms like bladder leakage, having to urinate more often, having to get up at night to go and feeling an urgent need to go. And you may be able to fight those symptoms by losing weight.
Body Fat in Obese May Be Toxic
Some obese patients develop conditions such as heart disease and diabetes, while others manage to avoid such chronic diseases. That may be because all obesity is not the same.
Belly Fat Predicts Heart Disease
Not all fat is created equal, especially when it comes to men with excessive weight around the middle. Some with added belly fat may be at an increased risk of developing heart disease and other serious health problems.
