What else is wrong with you?
I could rant and rave about these types of questions but, honestly, I won’t. The point is that I’m constantly reminded of what it’s like to go through a very unhealthy eating pattern with some kind of metabolic disease.
What are the symptoms of metabolic disease? How is it treated?
If you’re obese, the most common symptom is high blood pressure, especially if you have type 2 diabetes. In some cases, I may be told that a high blood pressure can be treated effectively with medication, but if you have diabetes, it is likely your underlying condition will need a lot more medical attention. Here’s a chart showing the effects of diabetes with elevated cholesterol and high low-density lipoprotein, LDL sub-density:
What are the symptoms of metabolic syndrome?
Another common symptom of metabolic syndrome is increased triglycerides (TG) levels. When a person is fat and their TG levels are high, a whole variety of problems can come up. For instance, if a person is high in cholesterol, it can make it difficult for them to process dietary cholesterol so that it will be taken up by the liver. The liver cannot process cholesterol properly when these receptors are blocked, and it may be impossible to get enough cholesterol in the diet (cholesterol is needed for the development of insulin).
So, if you have metabolic syndrome, your liver may be unable to remove all the cholesterol that goes into the blood, and it may be difficult for your liver to handle the excess blood cholesterol. The liver can’t produce enough enzymes to break down the fats, so as a result, your blood levels of triglycerides (TG) will be high.
Your blood, when it is high fat, will also get used up very quickly, because it is simply not able to metabolize the fat very well. So, your fat is used straight away, and the body will turn on the fat burning enzymes. This increases your overall body weight, and increases fat storage in the body cells.
Does obesity lead to metabolic damage?
It is difficult to say for sure.
It’s possible that obesity will cause your body to respond to insulin too quickly, and that increased insulin sensitivity is one of the effects. The idea is that you’ll have to take in more insulin to get what you need, instead of the insulin that you should be getting to ensure proper body functioning.
