Weight gain is not a thing that you can ignore. Sometimes, it might often indicate some severe health conditions too. The extra kilos are always a liability, but sudden weight gain is the worst of all. If you are way too particular about your workout sessions and diet, but wonder why the scale keeps on hitting high, BEWARE. Something within you is definitely wrong.
To save yourself from medication and discomfort, switch on your alert mode and act in accordance. Here we have some of the signs that will save your health from being hit. Check these out:
Belly fat or a 'spare tire,' could be a marker for cardiovascular problems. Research has found that abdominal weight is directly proportional to the risk of heart disease. Fat cells in the abdomen are associated with worsening insulin resistance, which in turn is associated with high blood pressure, higher cholesterol, and higher risk for type 2 diabetes mellitus. All of these risk factors increase the risk of heart disease.
You get Lethargic
One of the medical reasons that can account for your lethargy could be hypothyroidism. And it may also be messing with your weight. Hypothyroidism, or low thyroid status, presents with a slow metabolism leads to weight gain and abnormally high cholesterol levels.
Difficulty to sleep
People who have poor quality sleep have higher levels of ghrelin- the hormone that increases appetite. And lower levels of leptin- the hormone that decreases appetite.
Symptoms like pain, aching, stiffness, and swelling in your joints get worsen due to excess weight. Excess here means in respect to the limit your body permits. ‘Weight gain and obesity are important risk factors in increasing the risk of osteoarthritis development in the hands and knees’.
Note: All these signs are seen in most of the people with heavy weight, but it is an alarm for those who have the signs in “EXCESS”
So before hitting the extreme limit, consult the doctor.
