Genetics of Obesity

Obesity is very heritable. Obesity can be a complicating disorder which results from the interactions of a wide variety of hereditary and environmental factors. Polymorphisms in various genes controlling appetite and metabolism make susceptible to obesity under certain dietary conditions. The melanocortin 4 receptor gene mutation may be responsible for tens of thousands of cases of obesity. Monogenic type of genetic mutation is mainly responsible for severe forms of obesity that run in families. Occurrences of monogenic kinds of overweight are evidence that obesity may be caused by genetic mutations are mainly responsible for the occurrence of monogenic kinds of overweight. The most common forms of obesity are probably the result of variations in a large number of genes. The Obesity Meeting 2019 highlights the evolving strategies for Obesity, Weight loss-management, childhood obesity, exercise, physical therapy, bariatric surgery and upcoming challenges in field of Medicine & Healthcare.
