But simple Google search shows that losing weight can reduce type 2 Diabetes risk, high blood pressure, and "bad" cholesterol.
Losing weight can also help patients sleep better since it can cut down on snoring and sleep apnea. Snoring and sleep apnea can originate from having extra fatty tissue at the back of the throat. One study showed that a simply 10% reduction in weight resulted in 25% reduction in sleep apnea episodes.
Being overweight also causes pain in knees, ankles, and joints overall. Every time you step, you put 3 to 6 times your bodyweight on each knee joint. Being overweight causes your joints to become painful and swollen, and can lead to early arthritis.
Obesity and being overweight can even affect your fertility and hormones.
