Some people with obesity are free of metabolic diseases such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, and several types of cancer which often accompany this condition, despite their high body mass index (BMI). It is known as “metabolically healthy obesity” but a new study suggests that the “healthy” attribute should be taken with a considerably large pinch of salt.
It was confirmed that “metabolically healthy obesity” is not a harmless condition, and even people who remain free of metabolic diseases for decades face an increased risk of cardiovascular events. People with a normal BMI but who are metabolically unhealthy have a 2.5 times higher risk of CVD (Cardio Vascular Disease) compared with others with both normal weight and no metabolic conditions.
The Food Reeducation and Behavioural program and Body Modelling by Clínica do Tempo®, enables an individualisation of the alimentary regime and weight and fat excess reduction in any part of the body, in a healthy and natural way. So it is possible to timely prevent different pathologies, of genetic origin or related to lifestyle and life experiences, therefore prolonging longevity.
