Sociologists have found a direct link between obesity and the length and frequency of hospital stays.
Researchers have uncovered that, on average, obese people stay a day and a half longer than those who have a normal weight .
Sociologists assign the connection to disease; 46 percent of obese adults suffer from high blood pressure . In addition, obesity is associated with an increased risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke and other illnesses.
The research has also highlighted that the longer an individual has been obese, the more likely he/she is going to stay in hospital.
More people are becoming obese day by day.
Obesity is linked with increased risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes and other illnesses.
The main reason for individuals becoming hospitalised is disease. 46 per cent of obese adults in the study had high blood pressure . The ones who have been overweight since childhood and carried extra weight into adulthood suffer the most as they stay in hospital the longest.
Hence, it is vital to tackle obesity at a young age to staying out of hospital later on. It is also crucial to maintain a healthy diet and have regular exercise in order to thwart many illnesses.
