Study Links Obesity With Possibility of Heart Attack

The findings of a new study have now revealed that individuals who are affected by obesity and high blood cholesterol levels are at a higher risk of dying from cardiovascular diseases. In addition, suffering from diabetes or high blood pressure increases the risk even further, according to professor Ki-Chul Sung from Kangbuk Samsung Hospital in South Korea.

“People with metabolic disorders had a 1.6-fold-increase in cardiovascular mortality, compared to those who do not have any such disorder,” he said. 

The list of risk factors include high levels of fat in the blood, abdominal obesity, high fasting blood sugar, increased blood pressure and decreased high-density lipoprotein (HDL) simply known as good cholesterol.

For the study, the team examined the records of 155,971 people between 2002 and 2009.

The researchers measured mortality among the subjects suffering from obesity by fetching death records from the National Statistical Office of Korea.

12.6 percent had metabolic syndrome during the time of screening amongst the subjects.
The analysis showed that people with metabolic syndrome faced a greater risk of death from cardiovascular disease than their counterparts.

However, the difference went away when people with high blood pressure or diabetes were excluded from the analysis.

“The analysis tells that diabetes and high blood pressure are significant factors that elevate the risk of death from cardiovascular disease among people with metabolic syndrome,” noted professor Eun-Jung Rhee from Sungkyunkwan University.

“Younger people having metabolic syndrome should be aware of the risk, particularly those who have diabetes and high blood pressure,” he added.

The study was published in the Endocrine Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism.
