Metabolism is a process by which the body breaks down food to be used as energy or stored in the tissues. A metabolic disorder occurs when this process is disrupted by abnormal chemical reactions resulting in too much or too little of a substance in the body.
Being obese increases the risk of metabolic disorders such as diabetes, hypertension and abnormal cholesterol which can lead to heart disease. These risk factors, called metabolic syndrome include:
- Increased abdominal girth
- Increased triglyceride levels
- Low HDL level
- High blood pressure
- Increased blood sugar levels
