Some friends think that they are well maintained. Their weight is up to standard and their figure is OK. They just have a big belly and can’t fasten their jeans occasionally. He was advised to exercise more, especially to reduce his stomach, but he confirmed that when a man reached this age, his stomach was a little normal. Besides, there was no problem found in the physical examination results, so don’t worry.
But in fact, hypertension, diabetes, dyslipidemia and obesity can lead to acute and malignant cardiovascular and cerebrovascular emergencies. The first sign is obesity. “Middle age fat”, “generals belly” is a sign of obesity, but also the precursor of disease. Because the excess nutrients are synthesized into thick fat, which is attached to the abdomen, and some of them are deposited on the intestinal wall and viscera, especially in Chinese, it is very common that the visceral fat is too much.
Some people say that “middle age fat”, “General belly” is a blessing, but it is the beginning of the disease. Moreover, men with obese abdomen are more likely to suffer from various chronic diseases. For example, men with thick waists are four times more likely to have diabetes than those with normal waistlines. On the other hand, 80% of patients with type 2 diabetes have excessive waist circumference. And the longer the time of exceeding the standard, the higher the risk. In addition, the larger the waist circumference is, the higher the risk of hypertension is. The waist circumference is enlarged at the age of 20-30, and the incidence of hypertension is twice as high as that of normal waist circumference at the same age; the waist circumference is enlarged at the age of 40-50, and the incidence of hypertension is 50% higher than that of normal waist circumference at the same age.
In addition, abdominal obesity is more likely to have atherosclerosis and sudden cerebral hemorrhage, which is 3.6 times higher than those with normal waist circumference. At present, more and more young people, even teenagers, have a big belly which is not consistent with their age, which must be paid attention to.
Both men and women should pay close attention to their waistline changes. When wearing pants, if you find that the waistband is tight, you should be alert to whether the recent eating habits are normal and how often you exercise. You may as well prepare a tape measure at home. You’d better put it in a conspicuous position and form the habit of measuring your waistline regularly. When measuring, stand upright and measure the circumference of the navel horizontal line with a ruler. Measure it three times in a row and take the average value. This is the accurate waist circumference.
