Obesity is a serious disease process that can lead to many medical complications. Unfortunately, weight management, which generally improves these complications ("medical co-morbidities") requires long-term intervention to achieve long-term results. Sometimes, relatively simple dietary interventions such as decreasing saturated-fat intake, increasing intake of EPA (eicosapentaenoic acid) and especially DHA(docosahexaenoic acid) , the very-long chain omega-3 fats (found in ActiLean bars and shakes), and limiting sodium (salt) intake will improve these conditions.
Below Photo or Image is a list of some of the more common medical co-morbidities.
Note: This is not intended to be a comprehensive list of medical complications related to obesity (obesity affects virtually every organ system). This list, however, provides insight into some of the more common obesity-related medical conditions.
