According to a new study, obesity could actually protect heart failure patients, says Dr. David Samadi, robotic prostate cancer surgery expert. Dr. Samadi stresses that these findings are purely observational and are not intended to encourage weight gain or neglect healthy eating. Researchers believe the findings could indicate a range of contributing factors. Extra fat could provide a fuel reserve for the heart to work longer or extra weight could indicate the presence of extra muscle protecting the heart. Additionally, Dr. Samadi believes that obese patients are likely to have more frequent medical monitoring or greater doctor vigilance opening the door to earlier detection and treatment.
