Obesity- Pipeline Insights, Recent Developments, Major Players and Review

Obesity is a body condition in which a person's weight is above the normal range. It's an illness that can lead to a slew of additional issues. Obesity is when people consume more calories than their body demands—these extra sets of calories are stored as body fat. The amount of body fat you retain and where that fat is distributed may be influenced by the genes you receive from your parents. However, long-term sustainable weight loss cases have recently increased if the doctor collaborates with a team of professionals, such as psychologists, nutritionists, and exercise specialists.

As per the findings of the World Health Organization, the world has more than 2 billion overweight adults living in different regions, and out of the 650 million are categorized as obese. Although there are genetic, behavioral, metabolic, and hormonal influences on body weight, obesity generally develops when one takes more calories than the actual requirement for the body. In the world's developed regions, a large section of the population has a high-calorie intake due to the consumption of high-calorie beverages and fast food.

A person's BMI is a general estimate of their weight in relation to their height. Other more precise body fat distribution measurements include: ultrasounds, MRI scans, and skinfold thickness tests.

Surgery is only recommended when all other weight management methods fail to reduce that weight. Any individual who has a BMI level of more than 32.5 kg/sq. can benefit from the procedure. Even people who are 25 kg overweight are good candidates and will get significant results from the treatment.
