Obesity is one of the major causes for cardiovascular diseases; Obesity is associated with an increased cardiovascular risk itself by atrial enlargement, ventricular enlargement. It leads to several structural and functional changes of the heart, which causes heart failure and the altered myocardial structure increases the risk of atrial fibrillation and sudden cardiac death. By the Mechanisms through which obesity increases CVD risk involves drastic changes in body composition that can affect haemodynamic functions too

Obesity has been emerged as an important risk factor for the respiratory diseases due to adoption of sedentary lifestyles and increased pollution. In obese people, Fat tissue accumulation damages ventilatory function in adults and children. In other terms, Thoracic restriction associated with obesity is usually mild and is attributed to the mechanical effects of fat on the diaphragm and the chest wall resulting obstructive diaphragm excursion and reduced thoracic compliance

Obesity and depression are interrelated, as the effect of one express on the other. obese People are tend  to depressed due to the reasons which were leading to emotional ups and downs and many other health complications leading to psychiatric disorders and mental illness. Obese depression and mental illness consequences like psychosocial problems and suicidal thoughts are highly observed in young ones, as they face many stressful life events like bullying and weight based teasing.

It is a well-known fact that overweight (having a BMI of 30 or above) are at greater risk of developing metabolic chronic disorders like type 2 diabetes mellitus, insulin resistance. Accumulation of adipose tissue affects metabolism by secreting hormones, glycerol, and other substances including leptin, cytokines, adiponectin, and proinflammatory substances, and non-esterified fatty acids which are involved in the development of insulin resistance and disruption of fat metabolism. And the secretion of these substances will be increased leading to diabetes in obese individuals

HIV-infected patients who underwent the antiretroviral therapy (CART) can live longer but comorbidities emerge earlier and more frequently. Among them metabolic and cardiovascular diseases are two leading causes of death for HIV-infected patients. As Overweight cause risk factors like reducing immunity through various auto immune disorders and chronic diseases in the general population that increasingly affect HIV-infected people. Hence obesity seems to have a detrimental effect on immune recovery after CART initiation

Genetics contribute a one third part of obesity with the discovery of more than 50 genes that are strongly associated with it. The presence or absence of genetic factors tells susceptibility to obesity. In general, people who have obesity have multiple genes that susceptible them to gain excess weight. Such genes are the fat mass and obesity-associated genes (FTO gene), which are found in up to 50% of the population

In order to control obesity, a proper diet should be followed. Diet is the term which relates the caloric intake over particular time. A proper diet should be consists of balanced nutrition with fewer calories.

Obesity or overweight is obtained due to lack of physical inactivity, improper eating patterns, increased stress levels, not enough sleep. Over weight leads to several health complications like chronic diseases and others.
