OBESITY AND HEART FAILURE
“Tackling childhood obesity is key.”
Doctors have suspected for a long time that overweight patients appear to have an increased risk of developing heart failure, but most believed that the heart failure resulted from the diabetes, high blood pressure and coronary artery disease associated with obesity. Now, however, a new study - published in the August 1 issue of the New England Journal of Medicine - shows that obesity itself and not just the associated medical conditions can lead to heart failure.

** Why does obesity lead to heart failure?
As pointed out in an editorial that accompanies this article, there are problems associated with obesity that were not accounted for by this study. It is known that obesity can cause left ventricular hypertrophy LVH, or thickening of the wall of the heart's left ventricle, for instance. Longstanding LVH can eventually lead to heart failure. Further, obesity is associated with metabolic syndrome X - a metabolic disorder that can cause serious lipid abnormalities. It is possible that the LVH and/or metabolic syndrome neither of which were accounted for in this study may explain some or all of the excess in heart failure observed in overweight patients.
