Scope and Importance:
Morbid obesity Conference provides the scope for opportunities to learn progressed by international scientists and academicians. Morbid Obesity is also sometimes also called as Corpulence Obesity. Morbid obesity is a serious health condition that can interfere with basic physical functions such as breathing or walking. Those who are morbidly obese are at greater risk for illnesses including diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), gallstones, osteoarthritis, heart disease, and cancer.
Morbid obesity is diagnosed by determining Body Mass Index (BMI). BMI is defined by the ratio of an individual’s height to his or her weight. Normal BMI ranges from 20-25. See BMI on back panel. An individual is considered morbidly obese if he or she is 100 pounds over his/her ideal body weight, has a BMI of 40 or more, or 35 or more and experiencing obesity-related health conditions, such as high blood pressure or diabetes
Morbid obesity conference aims to bring together leading academic scientists, researchers and research scholars to exchange and share their experiences and research results about all aspects of:
2. Type 2 diabetes
It also provides the platform for researchers, scholars and educators to present and discuss the most recent innovations, trends, and concerns, practical challenges encountered and the solutions adopted in the field of Morbid obesity.
Morbid obesity occurs when the excess body fat becomes a danger to your overall health. It is a condition in which there is too much body fat for your height. Obesity is the not the same as being overweight, which is when your weight is higher than what is healthy for your height. In people who are overweight, the excess weight may be caused by high bone density, body structure, or excess body fat.
Morbid obesity is a chronic condition. There is no known cure. Obesity is determined by the following factors: genetics, behavior, internally set points of weight, and eating habits. Because of these factors, the morbidly obese person loses the ability to control their weight.
There are many health conditions related to morbid obesity, but some of the most common are:
• Type 2 diabetes, which can lead to heart disease, kidney failure, blindness, amputation of the feet or legs, and nerve damage
• Heart disease, such as hardening of the arteries, heart attack, and angina
• High blood pressure, which can lead to heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, and vision loss
• High cholesterol, which can lead to heart disease, stroke, and kidney failure
• Obstructive sleep apnea has been associated with high blood pressure
• Acid reflux/GERD, which can lead to esophagitis, Barrett’s esophagus, and esophageal cancer (adenocarcinoma)
• Osteoarthritis and joint pain, which can lead to loss of mobility
• Stress urinary incontinence
• Female reproductive health disorder, which can lead to infertility and sexual dysfunction
Over the years, weight-loss surgery has proven to be a successful method for the treatment of morbid obesity. It is the least traumatic, adjustable and reversible obesity surgery available. It can maintain significant weight loss, improve your health, and enhance your quality of life.
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.
