A review of the Obesity products under development by companies and universities/research institutes based on information derived from company and industry-specific sources maintaining a healthy weight is not always easy.

Obesity and overweight are epidemic in the United States. Obesity is a risk factor for numerous conditions, including diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol, stroke, heart disease, certain types of cancer, and arthritis. The prevalence of obesity is high, exceeding 30% in adult women and men. Many women, irrespective of demographic characteristics or income, are vulnerable to becoming overweight or obese because of limited resources for physical activity and healthy food choices, work commitments, and family demands. National data also show that physical inactivity, a primary risk factor for obesity, varies substantially among women in different geographic settings. The evidence for the adverse effects of obesity on women's health is overwhelming and indisputable. Obesity, especially abdominal obesity, is central to the metabolic syndrome and is strongly related to polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) in women. Obese women are particularly susceptible to diabetes, and diabetes, in turn, puts women at dramatically increased risk of cardiovascular disease (CVD). Obesity substantially increases the risk of several major cancers in women, especially postmenopausal breast cancer and endometrial cancer.Obesity rates in the United States are among the highest in the world. Many of America’s favourite foods, including hamburgers, French fries and doughnuts, are high in fat and carbohydrate content. These food items are also relatively inexpensive and available at fast food chains across the country (for ex. value menu). These convenience foods are frequently fried and are high in calories. Consumption of foods exceedingly high in fat calories can lead to obesity. Obesity has also been shown to increase the prevalence of complications during pregnancy and childbirth. The American First Lady Michelle Obama is leading an initiative to combat childhood obesity entitled "Let's Move". Mrs. Obama says she aims to wipe out obesity "in a generation". Let's Move! Has partnered with other programs. Walking and bicycling to school helps children increase their physical activity Relevant Organizations the American Obesity Treatment Association.
Weight loss and diet management is a challenge for millions of people around the world. Globally, more than 1 billion people are above an ideal weight. More than 100 million people in the United States are actively involved in a weight loss or weight management plan at any one time throughout the year. This suggests a demand for products and services which will continue for years to come. According to the World Health Organization, adult mean BMI levels of 22-23 kg.m2 are found in Africa and Asia, while levels of 25-27 kg.m2 are prevalent across North America, Europe, and in some Latin American, North African and Pacific Island countries. BMI increases among middle-aged elderly people, who are at the greatest risk of health complications. In countries undergoing nutrition transition, over nutrition often coexists with undernutrition. People with a BMI below 18.5 kg/m2 tend to be underweight. Annualized Obesity therapeutics market revenue, annual cost of therapy and treatment usage pattern data from 2012 and forecast for ten years to 2022. The Obesity market is undergoing a revival with the advent of several novel therapies that will lend considerable visibility to this indication space. This includes the use of combination therapies that simultaneously target multiple pathways and regulate appetite control, as well as novel molecular entities with new mechanisms of action.
