Researchers Call Skinny But big tummies More Danger Than Obesity

The term skinny fat or skinny but fat may still quite unfamiliar to the people of Indonesia. The definition of skinny but fat are those who have a thin body but have a big belly as a result of fatty deposits in the vicinity. Although excess body fat leads to obesity which is often associated with a myriad of health problems, but abdominal fat is more precisely called alarming. Why? Because it could trigger systemic inflammation throughout the body. They are too many to accumulate fat in the abdomen is called central obesity. This is not the case messing around

because it can lead to greater pressure on the heart and elsewhere. This danger, among others, called the 2014 study in BMJ Open that said central obesity could be a better indicator of risk related to cardiovascular disease in women than body mass index. Recently in a study published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine confirms the dangers of fat but thin. The study was conducted involving 15 184 adults aged 18 to 90 years. For 14 years, the development of these people followed. Researchers then use that data to look at the risk of death associated risk of

death from heart and body fat accumulates. From the data obtained that the people who had normal weight and normal body mass index but have central obesity have a higher risk of death. Researchers speculate visceral fat that is stored around the abdomen is more dangerous than subcutaneous fat (fat under the skin) because it can increase insulin resistance. \”People who are overweight or obese based on body mass index, may have subcutaneous fat that is bigger in the hips and legs. This fat is associated with metabolic profile that is healthier,\” wrote the researchers, as quoted from various sources

and was written on Tuesday (10 / 11/2015). However, it does not mean if you are overweight or obese are healthier than those who have normal weight. Because obesity is considered a risk factor for heart disease and diabetes. This study underlines that the measurement of ideal body weight using body mass index less accurate. For the measurement does not distinguish between fat and muscle. Though suspected muscle heavier. Besides it is not considered in many areas of the body where fat accumulates. Therefore in this study, researchers did not just see a body mass index but also waist-hip ratio.

\”Future studies should focus on factors associated with the development of normal weight, central obesity and its association with health,\” said the researcher. Researchers also suggest that people with a normal weight but have more body fat in the abdomen in order to begin to change his lifestyle.
