Obesity & Women’s Health


The prevalence of obesity is rising. Obesity negatively impacts the health of women in many ways. Healthy life style & exercise are needed to reduce the obesity related conditions.

Being overweight or obese increases the relative risk of:

• Diabetes and coronary artery disease in women.
• Higher risk of low back pain and knee osteoarthritis.
• Obesity negatively affects both contraception and fertility (including Polycystic Ovaries Syndrome).
• Obese women are at higher risk for multiple cancers, including endometrial cancer, cervical cancer, breast cancer, and perhaps ovarian cancer.

Regular activity combined with healthy food intake are needed to reduce weight and this will lower your risk for many diseases.

A study showed that with each 1% reduction in BMI, resulted in 3-5% reduction in coronary artery disease.
