You might call it a beer belly, but doctors say there's nothing funny about a big gut. It can be a sign of serious health issues.
That's because a big belly is closely linked to serious health risks. Men with a waistline that measures 40 inches or more and women with a waistline that measures 35 inches or more are in the danger zone. A large waistline is one indicator that a person is at risk of developing serious health problems such as heart disease and type 2 diabetes.
