Obesity is also related to circulatory problems such as thrombosis
Obesity brings several health hazards, including hindering arterial, venous and lymphatic circulation. The arterial circulation, just to remember, takes blood from the heart to the extremities, blood rich in oxygen and foods essential for the nutrition of tissues.

This fat is considered harmful and dangerous for arterial circulation and should be combated. In addition, because of a mechanical difficulty, this fat hinders the venous return, contributing to its worsening, which can trigger varicose veins and lower limb edema, as well as decrease the lymphatic return.
But the fat located in the hips and thighs, called a gynoid fat or "pear" shape, which is very common in women, is not directly related to arterial and venous problems.
Obesity, no matter where the fat deposits, is more related to hypertension arterial hypertension, difficulty in practicing physical activity and, consequently, increased glucose, cholesterol and fats in the blood. In the lower limbs it triggers chronic venous insufficiency and its consequences include the appearance of varicose veins, venous ulcers, eczema, venous and lymphatic edema. The difficulty of movement can lead to long periods in the same position and trigger a thrombosis.
Therefore, obesity should be combated, no matter if the person has a body shaped like an apple or a pear.
