The risk of developing diabetes rises to nearly 25% over a ten year period of time in men with a Body Mass Index (BMI) over 35. Degenerative joint disease- (wearing out the surfaces between moving bones) dramatically increases. Its like riding down the freeway with the brakes on. You can do it for a time but eventually the wear will catch up to you and the difficulty or primarily pain begins. difficulty sleeping at night because of sleep apnea can cause day time drowsiness, fatigue, and the lack of energy can zap your day.
