Obesity affects sexual well-being of people, a study by a hospital claimed. The survey of over 1,000 respondents in Delhi-NCR, both men and women in age group of 18-45, also found that poor self-image and lifestyle disorders was a common worry among the obese people. "Obesity is a menace which is plaguing Indian society like never before. In young years, it is ignored as 'healthy weight' by parents and peers and most people assume that it will wear off naturally in future," the Max hospital said in a statement.

"However, urban lifestyle keeps the vicious circle of poor diet and sedentary lifestyle alive and pose a challenge for most young adults," it said. Over time, this little extra weight keeps piling on and on till it reaches medically concerning levels of BMI (body mass index), it said.

"This extra weight comes with not only physiological changes, but it brings with itself grave comorbidities like risk of heart disease and stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, gallstones, osteoarthritis and even breathing problems," the hospital said. The study was conducted by Max Institute of Minimal Access, Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery, a unit of the Max hospital group.

Dr Pradeep Chowbey, chairman of Max Institute of Minimal Access, Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery said, "A fair balance of men and women in the age group of 18-45 shared their take on obesity and sexual health. And, 28.6 per cent respondents admit experiencing reduced sexual drive".
