Reasons why abdominal fat is harmful and how to control it. (Part-1)

Visceral fat, or belly fat, surrounds internal organs. This fat has health problems beyond aesthetic concerns. Reasons abdominal fat is detrimental and techniques to control it:

Health Risks Associated with Abdominal Fat:

Chronic disorders like cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and several malignancies are significantly associated to abdominal obesity.

Abdominal obesity can cause insulin resistance, which impairs cell response. This raises type 2 diabetes risk.

Visceral fat has metabolic activity and releases inflammatory chemicals. Chronic inflammation can cause heart disease and other problems.

Abdominal fat is linked to high triglycerides and low HDL (or "good" cholesterol).

Extra abdominal fat can cause cortisol and adipokine production to rise. These imbalances can cause health issues.

Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is connected to visceral fat accumulation.
