Weight-Related Health Risk Factors

Being overweight (BMI > 25) is not good for long term health. Being obese (BMI > 30) and carrying significant excess body fat is worse. But excess weight and excess body fat are only part of any weight/health risk assessment. Other weight-related risk factors include the following:

Additional Weight-Related Risk Factors

  • Your fat distribution. Abdominal fat is a more serious health risk.
  • Your family history of heart disease.
  • Your family history of weight-related health problems.
  • Your age. Male older than 45 years; or a postmenopausal female.
  • Your blood pressure.
  • Your level of blood fats (high LDL cholesterol, low HDL cholesterol, high triglycerides).
  • Your blood sugar levels.
  • Your breathing.
  • Signs of arthritis in Hips or knees.
  • Whether you smoke.
  • Whether you take sufficient exercise.
  • Your general eating habits.

All these weight-related risk factors will form part of any weight/health assesment.
