Healthy and Overweight Myth?
By Health Day
First, compared with healthy, normal weight people, metabolically healthy obese people were still at higher risk for cardiac and other death. Second, those with metabolic disease were at risk...no matter what their weight.
Finally, blood pressure, waist circumference,
and insulin resistance increased, and HDL cholesterol, the healthy kind,
decreased, as BMI rose.
Moving forward, you and your doctor may want to consider your BMI...and whether you have any metabolic conditions as you manage your long term health.
