Relation Between Central Obesity and Cardiovascular Mortality in People of Normal Weight

Researchers have found that central obesity is a risk factor for mortality even among individuals with normal body mass index. The results also suggest that waist to hip ratio might be a better marker than bmi for mortality risk. As noted by the authors, bmi is a measure of both lean and fat mass, whereas whr is associated with visceral fat accumulation, which has a stronger association with adverse metabolic profile than does bmi alone.

Too much cholesterol in the blood can lead to cardiovascular disease. What you eat has a direct impact on your cholesterol level. In fact, a diet rich in fiber and other cholesterol-lowering foods may help lower cholesterol as much as statin medication for some people. Working with a registered dietitian and doctor is the key to develop and maintain a successful health program to manage it. I will inform you on how to make diet, lifestyle changes, make you understand instructions for taking medication because it won't work if you don't take it as directed. Consult privately for a holistic dietary therapy to solve your problems.

Diet for a patient of heart problem - should include vegetables, fruits and whole grains. Avoid high-fat foods eg red meat, cheese and high-sodium foods (such as canned or processed foods). Take oats, salads, and low salt in your diet. Avoid fatty foods. Food rich in fibre is good for them. Apart from diet moderate exercise is also essential. Hope this helps you.

Hi, Visit your nearby doctor at that very time and get your blood pressure checked for 1 week and also physical generals. Simple low or high blood pressure or acidity/ gas-formation can cause such presentations. First rule out these, then will go further.

Ghee is saturated fat so is not recommended to be good for cholesterol. And as such any overweight person is advised to avoid fats, sugars, fried food. So you have been misinformed.
