Genetics of Obesity

Obesity are evidence that Occurrence of monogenic types obesity may be caused by genetic mutations, however, till now, only 78 cases worldwide has 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.  Beside those rare cases, many individuals have been a genetic predisposition of fat that may leads to obesity. Researchers have found many obesity susceptibility genes & the combination of an obese-genic environment & a genetic predisposition of fat will almost result in the development of obesity. Overview, current knowledge says that the conclusion genetic factors may be involved in etiology of obesity & exclusive of rare severe obesity cases, the genes involved are probably genes that interact with environment related factors to energy intake & expenditure to increase the risk of obesity.
