You don’t die of obesity; you die of the diseases that “travel” with it. It’s these metabolic decompensations that make obesity the scourge that it is. Diabetes, hypertension, heart disease, cancer, and dementia–the things that kill you under the concept of “metabolic syndrome".

"Metabolic health markers - the measurements
An individual is considered to have optimal metabolic health if their markers meet the following levels:
Average blood glucose (HbA1c levels of less than 5.7%
Blood pressure lower than 120/80 mmHg
Waist circumference of less than 102cm for a man; 88cm for a woman (for South Asians it's less than 90cm for a man; 85cm for a woman)
Blood triglycerides levels that are less than 1.7mmol/litre (< 150md/dl)
High Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (HDL-C) levels that are greater than 1mmol/litre (> 40mg/dl in men and > 50 mg/dl in women)
A person is considered to have metabolic syndrome when they fail to meet three of these optimal values, meaning for example that someone who has high blood pressure, high blood glucose and high triglycerides would be considered to be at the highest risk of experiencing health problems.
