Obesity Can Make Functional Changes to Heart

Ad Feedback

Obesity can actually make structural and functional changes in the human heart.

New research shows being overweight is a major risk factor for left atrial enlargement, and that increases the risk of atrial fibrillation, which is an irregular heartbeat.

HealthDay News reports obesity could also raise the risk of stroke and death.

Researchers find early assessment and intervention, especially in younger obese people, is key to preventing changes to the heart.
