This amounts to an estimated increased annual cost $4,789.00 for an obese woman, and $2,646.00 for obese men. Obesity greatly increases the complications of health conditions and cost of health care, including longer hospital stays, and higher treatment costs.

Adults struggling with obesity face numerous health risks including:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Fatty liver disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Sleep apnea
  • Stroke
  • Arthritis
  • Knee pain, dislocations, torn ligaments and arthritis
  • Gallbladder disease

Non-medical costs include an increased risk of premature death, lower quality of life, higher fuel costs, higher funeral costs, and higher travel costs to name a few.
