Obesity

Obesity is a medical condition in which excess body fat has accumulated to the extent that it may have a negative effect on health, leading to reduced life expectancy and/or increased health problems. In Western countries, people are considered obese when their body mass index (BMI), a measurement obtained by dividing a person's weight by the square of the person's height, exceeds 30 kg/m2, with the range 25-30 kg/m2 defined as overweight. Some East Asian countries use stricter criteria.

Obesity increases the likelihood of various diseases, particularly heart disease, type 2 diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea, certain types of cancer, and osteoarthritis.

OMICS International Organizes 1000+ Global Events Every Year across USA, Europe & Asia with support from 1000 more scientific societies and Publishes 700+ Open access journals which contains over 100000 eminent personalities, reputed scientists as editorial board and organizing committee members.

Scope and Importance:

Obesity is an independent risk factor for development and progression of renal damage. While the current therapies aimed at slowing progressive renal damage include reduction in weight and rely on inhibition of the renin-angiotensin system, the approach will likely be supplemented by interventions aimed at obesity-specific targets including adipocyte-driven cytokines and inflammatory factors.

Market Analysis:

An estimated 200 million adults in the U.S. (or a staggering 68% of the adult population) are categorized as overweight or obese. Obesity has become a significant contributor to rising healthcare costs in the country (total annual healthcare costs for treating obese adults now amount to nearly $150 billion). The condition is a leading cause of type 2 diabetes, disability, heart disease, morbidity, and mortality, resulting in nearly 112,000 deaths in the U.S. annually.
