Obesity is one of the most common health problems in the world today. It has, in recent times, become one of the toughest health challenges that people face. Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat accumulates to the extent that it may have an adverse effect on health, leading to reduced life expectancy or increased health problems.
Obesity often starts with gaining a few pounds, which may go unnoticed. Many people who are obese today were very thin. According to experts, obesity does not only begin with overeating but a change of lifestyle also plays a major part in weight gain. This may involve one’s job.
As news-medical.net reports, obesity is a concern because of its implications for the health of an individual as it increases the risk of many diseases and health conditions including: coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, cancers (endometrial, breast, and colon) and hypertension.
Unfortunately, obesity is difficult to manage. In many cases, those who are obese gain more weight than they lose. However, scientists have developed ways of combating obesity without starving – which may even compound the problem.
Pulse Oximeter C2A Health Device is one which is used in conjunction with diet and exercise for weight loss and fighting obesity. The device is used to measure the pulse rate and the oxygen levels of an individual in a non-invasive manner. It ensures that the person operates at recommended levels in regard to their pulse rate and oxygen levels to ensure that they lose weight the healthy way. In other words, it helps the user to monitor the way he or she loses weight through diet and exercise. Often, weight loss is done in an unhealthy manner, in which case more damage is done to the body than good.
The device alerts individuals seeking to lose weight on whether they are exercising within normal parameters of healthy vital signs or not. It gives the readings in a matter of seconds too.
It is also specifically made portable so that individuals can take it with them wherever they desire to go. The pulse oximeter is also pocket-friendly and not limited to the budgets of hospitals or clinics as individuals in the home setting can easily afford it.
Another gadget for a healthy weight loss is the nasal spray from Compellis Pharmaceuticals, Cambridge. As ukmedix notes, the spray works by just neutralising the aromas and taste sensations that come from food so that the user feels the urge to eat delicious food less.
The idea is that a person having taken the spray and who walks down the road will not be tempted to walk into a fast food shop for a doughnut because they will not smell the delicious aroma coming out of the shop.
The nasal spray, also called CP404, will also ensure that the user is not compelled to overeat as they will not experience food sensations so severely. It masks the smell of food and also helps to curb hunger or yearning for food.
As gadgetfind reports, the nasal spray is a calcium-channel blocker. Calcium produced by the body is said to narrow blood vessels and raise blood pressure. Calcium is also thought to play a role in the sense of smell. The calcium-channel blockers work by helping the blood vessels relax thereby lowering pressure.
