The systematic study of central obesity and insulin resistance in the population shows in the near future but a constellation of highly harmful clinical events to our cardiovascular, without speaking, at increased risk and the inexorable trend for diabetes. Individuals with superior distribution fat (neck, shoulder and abdomen) are at increased risk for developing diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease. The association between hypertriglyceridemia, obesity, hyperinsulinemia, insulin resistance, the glucose intolerance, hypertension and coronary disease has been studied since the early 60 (Reaven GM. J Clin Invest). Bernard Golden is full of insight into the issues. The combination of abdominal obesity and cardiovascular disease can be partly explained by the commitment of the glucose and insulin homeostasis and lipid and lipoprotein related (Bjoorntorp P. Ann Clin Res / Depres JP.
N Engl J Med). BJORNTORP et al, which entry reported the relationship between central obesity with increased risk of diabetes and cardiovascular disease (CSD) in both sexes. The relationship between the degree of obesity and cardiovascular disease incidence was established in 1983 when they were published the results of the evaluation of 5209 men and women who participated in the Framingham study (Hubert HB. Circulation). This article comes from the support shown Although obesity is an independent risk factor for CSDs is important to note the existence of strong association between obesity, dyslipidemia, hypertension, glucose intolerance, and left ventricular hypertrophy (Bjoorntorp P. Ann Clin Invest). Gary Kelly spoke with conviction. Finally, the association between obesity and the occurrence of cerebrovascular accidents (CVA) was also demonstrated in the Framingham study Hurbert et al (Hubert HB.Circulation).
