Thinner People With Excess Abdominal Fats Were Likely To Die Early Than Overweight Ones



Can belly fat be a problem even for people who aren't overweight?

New research says yes, excess weight around the middle boosts the risk of premature death even for people considered normal weight.

As you remember, previous research says that obesity was the secondary killer disease especially among children's.

But the recent study published in an article in the Annals of Internal Medicine concludes that people of normal weight who have a “spare tire” around their middle body have a greater mortality risk than those who are overweight or obese.

Belly fat has been linked to high cholesterol, inflammation, heart disease, stroke and diabetes, experts says.

The fat around our waists foretell our fate more accurately than our overall body mass index (BMI), a conclusion reached by Dr. Francisco Lopez-Jimenez, a specialist in cardiovascular diseases at the Mayo Clinic.

Dr. Lopez-Jimenez and his team found that supposedly skinny adults with elevated levels of abdominal fat had a greater risk of mortality than overweight or obese individuals whose fat was distributed normally across their body. These skinny spare tires were also considered the worst off in terms of long term survival compared to anyone else.


While excess body fat is tied to a myriad of health concerns, abdominal fat is believed to be especially worrisome in part because it triggers systemic inflammation throughout the body, which then leads to greater stress on the heart and elsewhere. Too much belly fat is labeled central obesity.
In this latest study, for example, the researchers found that in normal-weight men with central obesity, their  mortality risk was noticeably higher than even obese men who also had central obesity
.
On the other hand, obese women with central obesity had a slightly higher mortality risk than normal-weight women with central obesity. In addition to excess visceral fat, the authors speculate that central obesity may indicate poor metabolism.

It’s for that reason that the researchers advocate that these individuals and their health risks not be ignored by medical professionals. They believed that patients should be equipped with better tools than a sheet of paper with diet advice.
