Abdominal / central obesity Q&As

Did you know that abdominal fat is a predictor of Type 2 diabetes, heart disease and some cancers?

In fact, abdominal (central) obesity is more closely related with cardiovascular disease than general obesity.

 

gp in richmond; obesity

 

Why  does ‘abdominal’  or ‘central’ obesity arise?

  • Because one may consume more usable calories than he/she expends
  • Alcohol and a high meat consumption has been associated specifically with abdominal obesity
  • Conditions that predispose to central obesity are Cushing’s syndrome or Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)

Why does abdominal fat become more of an issue with age?

  • This is predominantly due to a drop in metabolic rate (the number of calories the body needs to function)
  • Menopause – with the associated change in hormones women tend to hold weight in their abdominal area

What are the possible problems that may arise from central obesity?

  • Osteoarthritis of weight bearing joints eg hips and knees
  • Insulin resistance,  resulting in Type 2 Diabetes
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Asthma-  people with obesity are more likely to be hospitalised for asthma                   
  • Alzheimer’s disease

What can you do to help ?

  • Exercise (combining aerobic exercise with resistance training is more effective than cardiovascular exercise alone in getting rid of abdominal fat). Also exercise leads to a reduction in cortisol production – a hormone that leads to more abdominal fat deposits
  • Eating healthily – consume the same number or fewer calories than used

How can we help?

See Dr Soori at Roseneath Medical Practice for abdominal measurement, exploration of possible causes,  assessment of your health risks, and advice and treatment of your excess weight condition. Advice will be provided on how one can improve their metabolic rate through diet and lifestyle changes.  Medication can in some cases help to reduce fat absorption, and anti-diabetic drugs can be prescribed which can help diabetes and central obesity.
