Track1: Obesity

Overweight and Obesity are defined as excessive fat gathering that may harm health. Obesity means having too much body fat. It is different from being Large, which means weighing too much. The weight may come from muscle, bone, fat, and/or body water. Obesity happens over time when you eat more calories than you use. The balance between calories-intake and calories-out differs for each person. Issues that might affect your weight include your genetic makeup, overeating, eating high fat foods, and not being bodily active. Being obese increases your risk of Diabetes, Heart disease, Arthritis, and some Cancers. If you are obese person, losing even 5 to 10 percent of your weight can delay or prevent some of these diseases. Abdominal Obesity is most frequently caused by a grouping of excessive food energy intake, lack of normal activity, and genetic vulnerability, although a few cases are caused primarily by genes, endocrine system diseases. The actual  view is some obese people eat little yet gain weight due to slow metabolic rate.

Track 2Childhood Obesity and Its Affects

Obesity in toddlers (Childhood Obesity) is a complex disorder. Its prevalence has increased so significantly in recent years that many consider it a major health apprehension of the developed world. For children and teens, a child's weight status is fixed using an age- and sex-specific per cent for BMI rather than the BMI categories used for grown-ups. This is because teenagers' body composition varies as they age and differs between boys and girls. Therefore, BMI levels among children and adolescences need to be expressed relative to other children of the same stage age and sex. However, more than 90% of cases are arise spontaneously; less than 10% are associated with hormonal or genetic causes.

Track 3: Genetic Obesity

Obesity is a multifaceted disease resulting from the interactions of a wide variety of hereditary and environmental factors. The combined progress in genomics and bioinformatics has contributed to a better understanding of the genetic and molecular basis of obesity. Occurrences of monogenic types of obesity are evidence that obesity may be caused by genetic mutations however as yet only 78 cases worldwide have been attributed to mutations of seven distinct genes. The most common forms of obesity are probably the result of variations within a large number of genes. Sequence variations within a pool of 56 different genes have been reported as being related to obesity phenotypes.

Track 4: Gynoid Obesity

Gynoid obesity is considered by presence of fat at hip and thigh regions. Buttocks of people suffering from this type of obesity will be larger than that of other types of obesity. Body shape of these people would be pear shaped and hence they are called pear obese. But despite such, gynoid obesity having individuals are said to be at a much harmless position than the android obese individuals for they are less at risk in developing chronic illnesses linked to obesity and overweight.

Track 5: Exogenous obesity

Exogenous obesity is a type of obesity that results from the immoderate consumption of meals. It's triggered by using a stable consumption of meals that goes good beyond what the body requires for use as sources of chemical power, leading to the storage of any quantity of energy derived from digested food particles as fats. Individuals having their weight 20% more than it should be, then, he or she is considered to be an obese. If the Body Mass Index for any person is 30 or above 30, then he or she has obesity disease. Obesity can be cured by various medical as well as mental therapies. There are so many surgeries to cure obesity. These include Gastrointestinal Surgery, Bariatric Surgery, etc. The corporal therapies are also helpful to reduce obesity in obese people.

Track 6Causes of Obesity 

The lifestyle changes throughout the world that have resulted in children having reduced physical activity and increased Dietary Intake. The quantity of time that children spend playing outside has diminished during the past few years and Geriatric Physical Therapy Exercises in schools have been reduced or eliminated. The majority of families now have either parents or the single parent working, resulting in the need for non-parental   supervision after school. Fear of children playing outside without mature direction has led many parents to admonish their children to stay inside after school. Children are thus spending more time watching television and playing on computers than exercising. As per child obesity statistics, watching television has been directly linked to obesity in childhood, with a rate of obesity that is 8.3-times greater in children who watch more than 5 h of television per day compared with those who watch up to 2 h of television per day.

Track 7: Excess Weight and Problems

Being overweight (Gynoid Obesity) can increase the risk of developing a range of serious diseases. The risks rise with the BMI, and so are greater for obese individuals. Body Mass Index (BMI) is a strong predictor of mortality among adults. Overall, obesity (BMI 30-35 kg/m2) was found to reduce life anticipation by an average of three years, while Metabolic Rate reduces life anticipation by 8-10 years. Obesity reduces life expectancy by an average of three years, or eight to ten years in the case of last stage of obesity (BMI over 40).

Overweight and obesity are proven risk factors for:

•             Diabetes

•             Cardiovascular problems

•             High cholesterol

•             Stroke

•             Hypertension

•             Gallbladder disease

•             Osteoarthritis

•             Sleep apnea   

 •             Certain cancers: uterine, breast, colorectal, kidney, and gallbladder

Track 8: Obesity and Cancer

The connection between obesity and risk for several types of cancer is now well established by more than a decade of scientific research.  Overweight/Obesity is responsible for nearly 25% of the relative contribution to cancer incidence. Obesity is strongly connected to many of the most common types of cancer, including post-menopausal breast cancer, colorectal cancer and cancers of the endometrium, kidney, thyroid and gallbladder. There is also evidence to suggest a link to cancers of the liver, cervix, multiple myeloma and Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Track 9: Anorexia

Anorexia Nervosa is a psychosomatic and possibly life-threatening eating disorder defined by an extremely low body weight relative to physique (this is called BMI [Body Mass Index] and is a function of an individual’s height and weight), extreme and unnecessary weight loss, illogical fear of weight gain, and distorted perception of self-image and body. There are two types of anorexia, which are as follows: Anorexia Nervosa Binge / Purge Type, Restrictive Anorexia Nervosa. Anorexia Nervosa continues to have the highest death of all psychiatric conditions. Since anorexia involves both mind and body, a group approach to treatment is often best. Those who may be involved in anorexia treatment include psychologists, counselors, and Diet and Fitness trainers.

Track 10: Obesity and Endocrinology

Obesity and Overweight is a growing health fear in humans and companion animals. Obesity is highly associated with various Endocrine Diseases that are characterized by hormonal imbalance and/or resistance. Weight loss generally normalizes these endocrine changes, implicating obesity as a direct cause. Endocrinology and Metabolic Syndrome  are the leading causes of morbidity in the Worldwide. In particular, the current epidemic of obesity is leading to early death through Diabetes, Cardiovascular Diseases and an increased incidence of cancer.

Track 11: Obesity and Diabetes 

Being Obese increases the chances of developing the common type of Diabetes, Type 2 Diabetes. In this disease, the body makes adequate insulin but the cells in the body have become resistant to the useful action of insulin. Almost 90% of people living with type 2 Diabetes are Obesity persons. People who are overweight or have obesity have added pressure on their body's ability to use insulin to correctly control blood sugar levels, and are therefore more likely to develop Diabetes

Track 12: Obesity Treatment

Obesity is a health problem worldwide and has reached an epidemic proportion in the society. Evidence remains to accumulate that obesity is a major threat          many diseases and is associated with significant morbidity and mortality. Obesity Surgery is a selection for people who have a body mass index (BMI) above 40. Surgery is also a selection for people with the range between 35 and 40 who have health problems like type 2 diabetes and heart diseases.   There are four types of operations as fallows below:                              

1.    Adjustable Gastric Banding (AGB)

The basic principle of this type of surgery is to reduce the food intake with the use of a small band placed around the top of the abdominal. The band confines the size of the opening from the oesophagus to the intestinal, limiting the amount of food a patient can ingest. The size of the opening can be altered using a balloon inside the band that can be inflated or deflated with briny solution according to the patient.

2.    Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass (RYGB)

This technique is also used to decrease food and creates a small pocket that is similar in size to the pocket created with AGB. The food evades the rest of the stomach and reaches the small intestine, where it is absorbed to a much lesser than if it had passed through the stomach and intestine.

3.    Vertical Sleeve Gastrostomy (VSG)

This process involves removal of most of the stomach, which not only controls food consumption and absorption, but lowers levels of the hormone ghrelin that is responsible for hungriness.

4.    Biliopancreatic Diversion with a Duodenal Switch (BPD-DS)

Also called the duodenal switch, this three-stage technique involves the removal of a large portion of the stomach which makes the patient feel full after eating only a small meal, followed by redirecting of the small intestines to prevent food absorption. The third step involves changing how bile and other gastrointestinal juices affect the process of digesting and absorbing calories.

Non-Surgical Treatments:

·     Medicines to treat obesity-related health problems

·     Behavioural changes to improve dietary habits and increase activity levels

·     Therapy to address any eating disorders (may also require medication)

Track 13: Obesity Diet

Effective weight-loss treatments include setting goals and making lifestyle changes, such as eating fewer calories and being bodily active.

Healthy Eating Plan

A healthy eating plan gives your body the nutrients it needs every day. It has sufficient calories for good health, but not so many that you gain weight. A healthy eating plan is low in saturated fat, trans fat, cholesterol, sodium (salt), and added sugar. Following a healthy eating plan will lower your risk for heart disease and other conditions.

 

Healthy foods include:

·         Fat-Free and Low-Fat Dairy Products, Such as Low-Fat Yogurt, Cheese, and Milk.

·         Protein foods, such as Lean meat, Fish, Poultry without skin, Beans, and Peas.

·         Whole-grain foods, such as whole-wheat bread, oatmeal, and brown rice.

·         Fruits, which can be fresh, canned, frozen, or dried.

·         Vegetables, which can be fresh, canned (without salt), frozen, or dried.

Track 14: Obesity and Weight Management

Treating obesity needs a combination of dietary, physical activity, and lifestyle changes. Medications may also be used. Orlistat, lorcaserin hydrochloride, phentermine, and phentermine/ topiramate are FDA approved for treating obesity. Antidepressants, Green tea Weight Loss, and metformin are used off-label. Additionally, group interventions are very effective in decreasing weight and improving glycemic control. Among older adults, group interventions are more successful than one-on-one training. Very Low Calorie Diet  will also be efficient against the weight loss program. Bariatric Surgery: Approximately 5% of adults are obese, making them candidates for bariatric surgery. Bariatric surgery leads to significant weight loss, improved glycemic control, decreased hypertension, reduction in depression, improved sexual activity, and decreased Sleep apnea.

Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have a negative effect on health, leading to reduced life expectancy and/or increased health problems. In Western countries, people are considered obese when their body mass index (BMI), a measurement obtained by dividing a person's weight by the square of the person's height, exceeds 30 kg/m2, with the range 25-30 kg/m2 defined as overweight. Some East Asian countries use stricter criteria.  

Worldwide, at least 2.8 million people die each year as a result of being overweight or obese, and an estimated 35.8 million (2.3%) of global DALYs are caused by overweight or obesity. Overweight and obesity lead to adverse metabolic effects on blood pressure, cholesterol, triglycerides and insulin resistance. To achieve optimum health, the median body mass index for an adult population should be in the range of 21 to 23 kg/m2, while the goal for individuals should be to maintain body mass index in the range 18.5 to 24.9 kg/m2. There is increased risk of co-morbidities for body mass index 25.0 to 29.9, and moderate to severe risk of co-morbidities for body mass index greater than 30. 

In 2009, the market for weight loss products and services was worth nearly $121 billion. BCC anticipates this market will expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 2.2% during the forecast period, resulting in a projected market size of more than $134 billion in 2014. Foods and beverages are the largest category in the ingested goods market. This segment was valued at nearly $79 billion in 2009. Food movements, growing sub-segments, and healthy eating trends should drive growth in this sector at a 2% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) to reach more than $86 billion by 2014. Nutraceuticals are the second-largest product segment, after foods and beverages.  Retail sales in 2009 topped $3.6 billion and are expected to grow at about a 1.4% compound annual growth rate (CAGR) through 2014 to reach $3.9 billion.

Recent research showing that half of malasian adults are obese .an increasing number of Asian countries are quickly gaining weight  & witnessing highest rate of diabetes, hypertension ,and weight related disorders .according to  study published by lancet,44% of men  aged  20 or older malasia are obese .rates are  higher  even among women , a trend that is seen mostly in  developing countries.
