Arteries and veins vascular complications

A higher concentration of fat in the blood at the thighs and stomach prevents the blood from the foot up properly to the heart.

This could cause venous disorders are the most frequent heavy legs, edema, varicose veins and phlebitis.

The excess fat also slows down the blood in the arteries; they take care of atherosclerotic plaques and organs that live at the expense of those arteries suffer (heart- gut – brain – kidney – liver).
