This is a reason why you should visit an emergency room for such conditions, to prevent such consequences. Another condition that folks who are obese are likely to develop is high cholesterol, which is basically the developing of fatty deposits in the blood vessels.

Another nutrition condition that is a medical emergency and as such should end up with a visit to an emergency room is anemia. This, in a nutshell, is a condition whereby one doesn’t have enough healthy red blood cells to carry adequate oxygen to the tissues in the body and is mostly due to a lack of vitamin B 12 and vitamin C. it can also be due to deficiency of iron. Severe attacks should be treated seriously and one should ensure they go to an emergency room so that they don’t end up suffering various heart problems including heart failure, not to mention that it is life-threatening.

Another medical emergency that can be triggered by nutrition conditions, this time a deficiency in vitamin B 12 are nervous system disorders.
