Genetics of obesity

Obesity can be a result of both genetic as well as environmental factors. Changes or mutations in genes that control body’s metabolism and appetite, may sometimes lead to obesity, when fulfilled by favorable dietary conditions. The influence of genetic factors on obesity is estimated to be 40-70%.

Individuals having their bodyweight 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 more, then he or she has obesity disease. Obesity can be cured by various medical as well as physical therapies. There have been a number of surgeries started to cure obesity. These include gastrointestinal surgery, bariatric surgery, etc. The physical therapies are also helpful to reduce obesity in obese people.
