Study Finds Obese People With No Other Risk Factors Not at Higher Risk of Mortality

Current research is unclear about whether or not it’s possible to be obese and healthy. A recent study suggests that people with obese with no other metabolic risk factors may not be at an increased risk of death when compared with people who are not obese or metabolically unhealthy.


Participants in the study included 54,089 people who had obesity alone or obesity clustered with metabolic factors, elevated glucose, blood pressure, lipids, or lipids alone. The researchers examined how many people in each group died, then compared them to a person of normal weight and no metabolic risk factors.


The researchers found that 1 out of 20 people with obesity had no other metabolic factors. They also found that people with obesity and no other metabolic risk factors did not have a higher risk of mortality, when compared with people of a normal weight and no other metabolic risk factors.


The researchers did find however that diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia were significantly associated with mortality risk.


Researchers from York University in Canada conducted the study. It was published on July 12, 2018, in the journal Clinical Obesity.
