Obesity Complications

I heard my Mom discussing the complications of obesity and thought it would be good information to share. Broadly, obesity refers to excess body fat and is defined as a body mass index (BMI) equal to or more than 30Kg/m2.


The following are some of the morbidities (conditions or diseases) related to obesity:


  • High blood pressure (Hypertension)

  • Heart disease

  • Cholesterol problems (low HDL, high triglycerides, and high LDL)

  • Cerebrovascular disease

  • Metabolic syndrome

  • Sleep apnea

  • Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD)

  • Polycystic ovary syndrome

  • Osteoarthritis

  • Cancer of the thyroid, kidney, uterus, colon and breast


My Mom and Aunt Connie help their clients not only decrease their weight, but also improve their wellness. They use the assistance of a FIT 3D body scanner to discern body fat percentage, and body fat distribution. This information correlates the strength of their current health status to these complications of obesity. Please make an appointment with Piece of Cake today! Not only will you start on a journey towards health and wellness - you will get to meet me!
