Treadmill Desks to the Rescue: Weight Control and Activity Critical in Preventing Heart Failure
Date:12/23/2008

7 Pounds overweight, no big deal? Think again.

Phoenix, AZ (Vocus) December 23, 2008 -- Adding to a growing body of evidence that is urging American’s to exercise more, study results released in the December 23rd issue of Circulation further emphasized the need to exercise as much as possible during the day.

Lead researcher, Dr. Satish Kenchaiah stated “even a little amount of physical activity appears to decrease the risk of heart failure.” The study focused on 21,000 doctors over a twenty year period measuring factors such as weight, physical activity and their effect on the body’s ability to pump blood efficiently. Declines in this efficiency often signal an increased risk of major coronary events.

Previous studies had shown that overweight individuals who engage in regular exercise have less heart risk than normal weight individuals who are sedentary however this most recent study illustrates the need to both stay active and lose excess pounds.

The study found a 49% increase of heart failure in overweight men (BMI: 25-29) compared to those with a body-mass index of 25 or less. Obese men (BMI > 29.9) experienced a 180 percent increased risk of heart failure. Alarmingly a 5 foot 10 inch man raises the risk of heart failure by 11% for every 7 pounds over his optimum weight.

The good news is that physical activity has an impact on these risk factors. Mildly active study participants (1-3 times per month) reduced their risk of
