” Obesity is a menace which is plaguing Indian society like never before. In young years, it is ignored as ‘healthy weight’ by parents and peers and most people assume that it will wear off naturally in the future,” in Max hospital statement, “However, urban lifestyle keeps the vicious circle of poor diet and sedentary lifestyle alive and pose a challenge for most young adults.”



Also added that with time this little extra weight keeps piling on and on till it reaches medically concerning levels of BMI (body mass index).



Max hospital said, “This extra weight comes with not only physiological changes, but it brings with itself grave comorbidities like the risk of heart disease and stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, gallstones, osteoarthritis and even breathing problems.”



The study was conducted by Max Institute of Minimal Access, Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, a unit of the Max hospital group.



The chairman of Max Institute of Minimal Access, Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, Dr. Pradeep Chowbey quoted, “A fair balance of men and women in the age group of 18-45 shared their take on obesity and sexual health. And, 28.6 percent of respondents admit experiencing reduced sexual drive”.



The study declared more men experience a reduced sexual drive in comparison to women and the majority of women (45.5 percent) would discuss issues with a doctor in comparison to men (26.3 percent).



In Dr. Pradeep’s words, “Obesity is undoubtedly a major challenge and health concern worldwide. It brings along a plethora of health problems like heart diseases, diabetes, hypertension, joint-related problems, stroke and along with these, and it also impacts one’s sexual drive.”



Obesity (or overweight) can be the major obstruction in one’s stamina, which is important to sustain in a sexual performance. The metabolism of sex hormones changes as obesity impacts testosterone levels causing loss of libido or low sexual drive, Claimed Chowbey.
