Not only does obesity increase the risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD), and not only is it possibly linked to psychological issues such as anxiety and low self-esteem, it now appears that it also plays a role in exhaustion.
In an analysis study of almost 14,000 subjects, UK and US researchers found that body-mass index (BMI, a relative measure of body fat) was highest among those with the highest levels of Vital Exhaustion (VE). VE is a psychological state characterised by excessive fatigue along with feelings of irritability and demoralisation.
In their study, published in the journal Obesity, the authors write that understanding the relationship between obesity and VE (for example, whether one may lead to the other or whether they may occur together) may help improve the success of treatment for each - and may reduce people’s risk of developing CVD and/or suffering further complications of CVD.
