Does obesity create any permanent, irreversible damage?

30yo white male, overweight and obese most of my life. Adult life constantly between 240-290lbs, not the best of diets. If I were to make significant, lasting dietary, lifestyle, and exercise related changes, lose both weight and fat, add muscle, and overall get into a healthy weight/BMI and maintain i while continuing to eat better and exercise often....would there be any reason at such a you g age to worry about there being any permanent damage from the obesity? Whether heart/artery related or anything else, could there be unfoxable things present? How likely?

Hello~Making all those positive, healthy changes would definitely cause the body to start healing itself, and if there was any damage starting from the obesity, it would certainly stop it in its tracks. You are young enough still for your body to heal itself with the proper diet and lifestyle. I don't think you have a thing to worry about.
