New research from the Journal of the American College of Cardiology has shown that having a fatty heart, regardless of your weight, increases your risk of heart failure by 50-100%! Pericardial fat, which is the fat that surrounds your heart, can increase your risk of heart failure regardless of other risk factors like body weight, smoking, and high cholesterol. The study also found that women who met the criteria for high pericardial fat volume had double the risk of heart failure, where men who met the criteria has a 53% increased risk.
Many chronic conditions are linked to each other, which means having one increases your risk for developing another. About 85% of people ages 60 or older have at least one chronic disease, and 60% have at least two.
