The non fatal but debilitating health problems associated with obesity are respiratory problems, chronic musculoskeletal problems, skin problems and infertility. Excessive body weight has also been predictable to worsen other medical conditions like knee osteoarthritis, back pain, sleep apnea, gout and related health complications and it is now prevalent among the rural population affecting all the age groups but mostly among women.
