Worldwide medical insurance customers who are overweight or obese might want to discuss the matter with their doctor sooner rather than later.
According to recent research from experts at Monash University and the University of Copenhagen, the longer a person lives with obesity, the higher their risk of mortality.
Indeed, the study found that those who had been obese for 15 years or more were three times more likely to die.
A total of 5,209 people were studied in the paper, which looked at their records for 48 years.
The findings showed that mortality increased by between six and seven per cent for every two years lived with obesity.
Dr Anna Peeters from Monash commented: "Before now we did not know whether being obese for longer was any worse for your health than simply being obese.
"This research shows for the first time that being obese for longer increases your risk of mortality."
