Exogenous Obesity is a type of obesity that is caused by a person consuming an excess of calories. This excess causes a person to have too much body fat, such that an individual’s body mass index (BMI) reaches a level of thirty or higher. Exogenous Obesity is different from Endogenous Obesity because Exogenous Obesity refers to Obesity that is caused by an excess of calories, whereas Endogenous Obesity is caused by a dysfunction in a body mechanism. For instance, Endogenous Obesity could be caused by Hypothroidism, an abnormality that greatly decreases the body’s metabolism. Like all types of Obesity, Exogenous Obesity can cause various detrimental health problems including heart disease, various cancers, sleep apnea, and decreased life span. Efforts should be made to lose weight, particularly through diet and exercise.
