Japanese Researchers Find Subversion: Dyslipidemia Has Reduced Impact on Obesity-Related Health Risks

【Voice of Hope March 20, 2023】 Many people believe that obese people are more likely to have dyslipidemia. But an analysis of data from 11,000 Japanese residents aged 65 showed that obesity increased the risk of diabetes, hypertension, and dyslipidemia, but that obesity had a smaller effect on dyslipidemia, especially among women.

Dyslipidemia includes hypertriglyceridemia, hypo-HDL-c hyperemia and hyper-LDL-c hyperemia.

Among the 11,000 residents, 9.7% suffer from diabetes, 41.0% suffer from high blood pressure, and 63.8% suffer from dyslipidemia. The prevalence of these diseases increased with the degree of obesity, especially diabetes and hypertension, and the increase in the prevalence of dyslipidemia was not obvious.

In addition, there was little difference in the risk of dyslipidemia among different degrees of obesity. Especially for women, diabetes and hypertension were more affected by obesity and less by dyslipidemia, peaking in the low-level obesity group.

Obesity had a strong effect on diabetes and hypertension, but not on dyslipidemia, the researchers said. Dyslipidemia is also associated with factors other than obesity (including genetics, age, hormones, diet, and exercise).

Therefore, patients with dyslipidemia, especially women, should not only lose weight, but also avoid excessive intake of fat and sugar, avoid alcohol, and exercise a healthy lifestyle such as enough.
