Obesity and Cardiovascular Disease

Obesity is one of the first and foremost risk factor for cardiovascular disease. The major effects of obesity on cardiovascular (CV) health are mediated through the risk of metabolic syndrome (dyslipidemia, and hypertension and insulin resistance), such that an absence of these risk factors in obese individuals may not be associated with increased mortality risk. Obesity is corresponding with an increased risk of morbidity and mortality as well as reduced life and expectancy.  Men are more prone to develop visceral type obesity while women develop the peripheral type. Corticosteroids and growth hormone also reason to develop visceral obesity. Obesity Congress gathers a highly interactive and informative session in the field of Bariatric Surgery, Obesity and Endocrinology.
