Obesity is a condition where accumulation of excessive fat in adipose tissue impairs health. Obesity is mainly caused by intake of a excessive food, lack of physical activity & genetic susceptibility. According to the world health organization WHO (2006), if a person is said to be normal weight, he or she has a Body mass index between 18.50 & 24.99. A person with a BMI of 25 or more is stated as overweight and BMI of 30 or more is considered obese. Obesity is a leading preventable cause of death worldwide and considered as one of the most serious public health problems of the 21st century. Globally, overweight & Obesity as of now the fifth leading risk for premature death. Almost 3 million adults die every year.

The lack in energy balance mostly often causes overweight & Obesity. Energy balance means your energy IN equals your OUT energy. Overweight & obesity happens over time when you take more calories than you use. Moreover Inactive Lifestyle- People who was inactive is more likely to gain weight because they don't burn the calories which they have taken from food & drinks. Even Our environment doesn't support healthy lifestyle habits; in fact, it encourages obesity. Reasons include; Lack of neighbourhood sidewalks & safe places for recreation, Junk food portions, lack of healthy foods & false food advertisings etc. Family History-genes and Genes play a major role on a person's weight. Overweight & obesity tends to run in families. If any one of your parents were overweight or obese. You are having chances to be obese.

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.

Obesity and diabetes are Inter related diseases. According to statistics of Centre for Disease Control, the people who were diagnosed with type II diabetes, 80-90% were diagnosed as obese. For every 3 seconds, one individual is diagnosed with diabetes. Type II diabetes is a lifelong chronic disease in which high levels of sugar (glucose) in the blood and the cells ignore the insulin. Type II diabetes Weight gain is common in people who take insulin to treat diabetes. That’s because of more insulin we use to maintain in our blood glucose level, the more glucose is absorbed into our cells, compare to elimination by our body. The absorbed glucose was stored as a fat, which makes us to gain weight.

Liposuction is a surgery used for elimination of Excess fat accumulated on abdomen, flanks, thighs, and other areas of the body can be a complicated process. which has been one of the most popular plastic surgery techniques for more than three decades now Often, diet & exercise on their own are just not sufficient to the task. In that case, many people who want to achieve more aesthetical pleasing body contours turn into liposuction. This safe, proven procedure has been allowed millions of patients to improve their figures through the precise targeting & removal of isolated deposits of fat. Often compare with other plastic surgery procedures such as abdominoplasty ("tummy tuck" surgery) & breast augmentation, liposuction is a potential ideal solution for anyone who are looking to refine & rejuvenate their contours.

BMI is used as a screening to indicate whether the person is obese underweight, overweight compare to healthy weight for their height. Any individual BMI is out of the healthy health risks may increases. BMI values are age-independent & same for both genders. A person may have a high BMI, and to determine if this excess weight is a health risk, a healthcare provider would need to complete further findings such as: Skinfold thickness, Evaluations of diet, Physical activity, Family history & other appropriate health screenings.

Anorexia Nervosa is a psychological & life-threatening eating disorder defined the persons extremely low body weight & needless weight loss fear, fear of weight gain, and distorted perception of self-image & body. There are 2 common types of anorexia, which are as follows: Anorexia Nervosa (eating disorder). 2) Restrictive Anorexia Nervosa. Anorexia Nervosa continues to have the highest mortality of psychiatric conditions. Since anorexia involves both mind & body, a team approach to treatment is often best. Those who have involved in anorexia treatment include medical doctors, psychologists, counsellors, and dieticians.

Obesity treating entails the combination of dietary, physical activity,& lifestyle changes. Some Medications also be used. Orlistat, lorcaserin hydrochloride, phentermine, & phentermine/topiramate are FDA approved drugs used for treating obesity. Anticonvulsants, Antidepressants, & metformin were used off-label. Additional to this, group interventions were more effective in decreasing weight & improving glycaemic control. Among older adults, group interventions are most successful than one-on-one training.
Bariatric Surgery: Approximate 5% of adults were suffering from morbidly obese, preparing such candidates for bariatric surgery. Through Bariatric Surgery significant results were found weight loss, improved glycaemic control, decreases hypertension, depression reduction, improved sexual activity, & decreased sleep apnea. Studies have been shown that after the surgery, The patients of 78% had complete resolution of T2DM, & 62% are in remission 1 year after surgery.

Medical weight loss means not a surgery or diet pills. It is weight management based on medical scientific principles that target the root causes of obesity & weight gain to achieve and sustain a healthy weight in the long-term under the care of a medical provider.
The tools that the providers use to manage medical weight loss were very different from what we have found with commercial programs. Firstly, providers use metabolism & body composition (mainly fat percentage) as a true indicator of weight loss progress. Secondly, they prescribe some, low-calorie & safe diets which are specifically designed to lose weight in breaking the cycle of food addiction. They prescribe an appetite suppressant. Finally, they have the complete idea & ability to view weight loss & maintenance within the context of total health profile.

Hormones are known as chemical messengers that regulate processes in our body. This is one of the major factors in Obesity causes. The hormones Leptin & insulin, sex hormones, growth hormone influences our appetite, metabolism and body fat distribution. A system of glands, known as the endocrine system, secretes hormones into our bloodstream. The endocrine system works with nervous system & the immune system to help our body cope with different events and stresses. Excesses or deficits of these hormones may lead to obesity &, on the other hand, obesity may leads to changes in certain hormones.

Metabolism is conditions were our body make energy from the foods which we have taken.A metabolic disorder may occur when is a abnormal chemical reactions in our body disrupt this process. There are different groups of metabolic disorders. Some affect the breakdown of amino acids, carbohydrates, or lipids. Other group, mitochondrial diseases, affects the parts of the cells that produce the energy. You may cause a metabolic disorder when some organs, such as your liver or pancreas, become diseased or do not function normally. The best example is diabetes in which there are high blood sugar levels over a prolonged period of time. Symptoms include high blood sugar, frequent urination increases thirst and hunger. Serious long term complications includes heart stroke, chronic kidney failures foot ulcers damaging of eyes.
