Scope and Importance:
The fundamental cause of obesity and overweight is an energy imbalance between calories consumed and calories expended. Changes in dietary and physical activity patterns are often the result of environmental and societal changes associated with development and lack of supportive policies in sectors such as health, agriculture, transport, urban planning, environment, food processing, distribution, marketing and education. The main causes underlying this condition especially in urban settings are Alcoholism, eating disorders, hormonal imbalances, improper sleep patterns, sedentary life style, poor nutrition, stress, psychopathic drugs, metabolic disorders and genetic predispositions.
Consequences of being overweight include cardiovascular diseases, musculoskeletal diseases and also cancers. The two most usual treatments include diet and exercise. Weight loss medicines and surgery are other methods which are increasing nowadays. Eating a healthy diet and being physically active as much as possible is the major preventive measure for avoiding overweight and its consequences. Gene therapies like replacement therapies are still under development; nevertheless the increasing population towards this disease especially in urban settings has also increased the scope of treatment across the globe.
In 2013, 42 million children under the age of 5 were overweight or obese. Once considered a high-income country problem, overweight and obesity are now on the rise in low- and middle-income countries, particularly in urban settings. In developing countries with emerging economies (classified by the World Bank as lower- and middle-income countries) the rate of increase of childhood overweight and obesity has been more than 30% higher than that of developed countries.
