    The risk of heart failure increases 5 percent in adult men and 7 percent in adult women for every one unit increase in BMI according to a recent study.

    Compared to people with a normal BMI, obese men and women were approximately twice as likely to suffer heart failure.

    The risk was 2.1 times as great in obese women, and 1.9 times as great in obese men.

    The study analyzed data from 5881 participants in the Framingham Heart Study with an average age of 55-years-old.
