The Risk of Belly Fat – Diabetes Series

By Global Health Media Project:

A big firm belly is not normal and not healthy. Behind the firm muscle wall, fat lies deep inside surrounding the organs and pushing the abdominal wall outwards. Internal belly fat is dangerous and different from the soft fat just below your skin, the fat that you can pinch. This video shows you a simple way to measure your belly fat, and describes the basic ways to reduce belly fat and improve your health.

This video is one of over 30 videos in our series on diabetes prevention and care. The videos are targeted for three audiences: health care workers – to help guide providers in developing countries in good diabetes care; people with diabetes – to improve their knowledge and home care; and the general public – to increase their understanding of diabetes, with the aim of greater awareness of the risks and symptoms, and ways to prevent type 2 diabetes.
