Listed below are a few major health problems that are caused due to being stressed:
Stress leads to asthma. Stress is known to really exacerbate asthma. Some researchers state that a pregnant mother suffering from chronic stress puts her baby at a risk for developing asthma. The study also suggests that parents, who are frequently stressed out, put their kids at risk for being stressed as well and ultimately at risk for developing asthma.
Stress can make you pack on the pounds. Stress tends to make you simply obese. Stress forces our bodies to release the hormone cortisol in excessive amounts and this is the culprit for one putting on extra weight particularly in the abdomen area. Moreover, excess fat in the belly tends to pose greater health risks than fat on the lower body.
Stress causes heart disease. Researchers suggest that stressed out individuals are at a higher risk of suffering from high blood pressure, irregular heartbeats, stroke, heart attack and other heart problems. Additionally, stress seems to have a straight effect on blood vessels and the heart. Stress can lead to other problems that can indirectly affect your heart such as smoking, drinking etc.
