Whether or not you maintain a healthy and nutritious diet, if you’re overweight there is a chance you are at risk of decreased immune function. In today’s world, our immune system is one of the most important bodily functions; a strong immune system means better defense against sickness and viruses.

In fact, severe obesity has been linked to increased risk of the H1N1 influenza, the common flu, among many other illnesses. Now, you may be asking yourself what can I do to get my immune system to function better? Spatz Medical has you covered.

The Science

When you get sick, whether it be infected with a virus or a bacterial infection, your immune system is triggered which causes inflammation – good inflammation! This reaction, which occurs when the proteins called “cytokines” are released from your white blood cells, allows for your body to defeat your illness. 

Recently, scientists have discovered that fat cells maintain a network of proteins and chemicals which includes the inflammatory protein “cytokines”. This means that if you have too much excess fat, your body is in a constant state of battling sickness, even when it’s not there..

The Consequences

Weight Loss Improves Immune System

With your body being in a constant state of inflammation, you can be at risk for a number of incredibly serious diseases. A weak immune system can lead to diseases like influenza, heart disease, and diabetes.
