Obesity is related to HF in a complex fashion. Whereas obesity is a risk factor for HF, elevated BMI seems to favorably influence survival after the onset of HF (obesity paradox) [114]. Additional carefully performed investigations are warranted to provide further insights into how elevated BMI influences HF risk and prognosis. Studies of larger multiethnic cohorts and mechanistic investigations may advance knowledge regarding the impact of obesity on HF.
