How Obesity Contributes to Diabetes and Heart Diseases?

If one weighs at least 20% more than your standard weight, you could be considered obese. In other words, if the body mass index is 30 and above, then it is considered obese. Obesity is a growing concern in various parts of the world. Having excessive body fat, due to hereditary or dietary choices is considered obesity. It can affect anybody, there is no specific age group that is more prone to obesity.

Obesity leads to various other diseases like heart diseases, high blood pressure, diabetes, and certain types of cancer. Obesity is not merely a cosmetic abnormality but can be fatal for the body if not controlled at the proper time. Obesity is vastly known to be a cause of genetics or due to an unhealthy lifestyle. It causes other diseases caused by sedentary life like fatigue and lethargy. There are various procedures in General medicine and Surgery that help medically remove excess fat.

How does obesity contribute to Diabetes?

diabetes and obesity

Excess body weight, an escalating problem worldwide, is a major risk factor for cardiovascular diseases and Diabetes.
Diabetes affects more than 180 million people around the world, and the number of patients is estimated to increase in the coming years.
Recent data suggest that Type 2 Diabetes cases are 95% more prevalent in adults.
Obesity is associated with a pro-inflammatory state marked by chronic elevations of systemic adrenergic activity, dyslipidemia, and hyperglycemia.

How does Obesity contribute to Heart diseases?

Obesity and heart disease

Patients with heart diseases and diabetes are often hyper-tensive. If there is constant metabolic stress to the heart, it leads to the deterioration of the function of the heart.
The relationship between obesity and cardiovascular diseases has been proven by various scientific researches.
Obesity leads directly to heart diseases through atrial enlargement and ventricular enlargement. When the fat increases the body can’t metabolize the food as it should and creates unwanted blockages.
It changes your cholesterol levels and lowers your good high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol.
Obesity can cause your blood pressure to rise. The pressure required to move around is a lot when one is obese.

The link between diabetes and heart disease

People who are suffering from diabetes are at a higher risk of developing heart diseases. This is due to high blood glucose which damages blood vessels and the nerves responsible for controlling the heart and blood vessels. They could be prone to high blood pressure which further increases the risk of cardiovascular diseases.

Obesity Prevention and control

There are steps that can be taken to reduce the risk of developing heart disease and obesity. Following are some steps one can follow:

  • Keeping your blood glucose,
  • BP, and cholesterol under control
  • Quit smoking
  • Follow a healthy diet plan
  • Engage in regular physical activity
  • Maintain healthy weight
  • Manage stress well
  • Get enough rest

The key to avoiding obesity is to exercise regularly and a healthy diet. In some cases that might not be sufficient. Sometimes it is not about what one eats rather how the excess fat is biologically assimilated. Some metabolic parameters like insulin, glucose, gut microbiome can affect how the food digests and where it goes.

According to the 1991 census, Udaipur District is one of the poorest districts in the country. The population mostly amounts to tribal populations and rural areas. The healthcare facilities are poor and very few people are literate, among which only 5% of the women population is educated.

After the slow intervention of the healthcare system in the nearby districts along with Udaipur, Dr. BR Chaudhary started this vision of providing healthcare facilities to all the areas nearby to bring about change in the society.

What is Internal Medicine And The Role of an Internal Physician

“The good physician treats the disease; the great physician treats the patient who has the disease.” — Sir William Osler, FRS, FRCP

The way a doctor interacts with their patients makes a lot of difference in building longitudinal relationships with people who seek their care. Working alongside the patients, and making their long term wellness a topmost priority goes a long way for a doctor.

Internal Medicine is the branch of medicine that deals with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of undifferentiated and multi-system diseases and their processes. It is derived from the German word ‘Innere Medizin’ meaning internal medicine. The doctors were known to be internal medicine doctors or internists because they focused on the “inner” diseases instead of the external manifestations of those diseases. It explores the underlying pathological causes of symptoms and syndromes with the help of laboratory and clinical assessment of bedside patients and emergency wards.

Thomas Sydenham, the father of English Medicine, also developed Nosology-the study of diseases via the clinical approach of diagnosis and management by careful bedside study of the natural history of diseases and their treatment. He took part in the dissection of corpses and scrutinized the internal working of the body for considering the internal mechanics and causes of symptoms.

Following his research, in the 18th Century, there was a high rise in anatomical pathology and laboratory studies combined with the clinical approach with the process of investigations. The research became very prominent with the contribution of pioneer doctors.
Internists or Internal Medicine physicians have multiple roles in a hospital. They tend to various types of illnesses and diagnoses.

Role of Internal Medicine Physicians

internal physician

Due to the complex nature of illnesses and multisystem examinations, internists are highly trained in illnesses and disorders of all parts of the body.
They are expected to address undifferentiated presentations of complexities that cannot be classified within the expertise of single-organ specialists, for example, Dyspnoea, weight loss, change in a conscious state, etc.
They act as primary care physicians wherever required.
Their training extends beyond adult patients, it also involves surgeries, obstetrics, and pediatrics.
They are the first responding doctors for medical emergencies.
Most internists work with medical groups or large hospital system, they see their patients in an office setting.

Medical Procedures

Internal Medicine is focused on the art of diagnosis and treatment with medication, but many subspecialties administer procedural treatment:

  • Allergy and Immunology (immune system)
  • Cardiovascular Disease (heart and vascular system)
  • Advanced Heart Failure and Transplant Cardiology
  • Interventional Cardiology
  • Clinical Cardiac Electrophysiology
  • Endocrinology, Diabetes, and Metabolism (diabetes and other glandular and metabolic disorders)
  • Gastroenterology (gastrointestinal system, liver, and gall bladder)
  • Transplant Hepatology
  • Hematology (blood)
  • Infectious Disease (bacterial, viral, fungal, and parasitic infections)
  • Nephrology (kidneys)
  • Oncology (cancer)
  • Pulmonary Disease (lungs and respiratory system)
  • Rheumatology (joints and musculoskeletal system)

“Cure sometimes, treat often, and comfort always.” — Hippocrates

Education and training of Internal Physicians

The career paths and training of an internal medicine physician vary across the world. Many programs require a pre-med degree prior to applying. In India, a medical school graduate is granted a degree and a license to practice after completing four and a half years of training and success in University examinations. They can then practice as Internal physicians or popularly known as Primary care physicians.

The Medical Council of India’s new competency-based curriculum for medical graduates is a major landmark for medical education in India; it represents a paradigm shift. The Council’s attempt to modernize medical education is laudable and in keeping with recent global trends.

How is Internal medicine different from other medical practices?

A lot of people often confuse family physicians with Internal medicine doctors, the family doctors also treat children occasionally, Internal medicine doctors do not usually tend to children. According to the American College of Physicians, 10-15 percent of patients that family physicians deal with, are children. All internal doctors need inpatient and outpatient settings for their procedures. Internists usually treat adults.
