Diabetes and Obesity

Obesity is a medical condition which results from the accumulation of excess fat on the body. Obesity is thought to trigger changes to the body's metabolism. It also adds pressure on body's ability to use insulin, to properly control blood sugar levels, and are therefore more likely to develop diabetes. The abdominal fat influences fat cells to release ‘pro-inflammatory’ chemicals, which can reduce insulin sensitivity by disrupting the function of insulin responsive cells and their ability to respond to insulin. Obesity also causes prediabetes, a metabolic condition that almost always develops into type 2 diabetes.

Obesity has many causes such as age, gender, genes, psychological makeup, socioeconomic, and environmental factors. Certain medical conditions and medications can cause or promote obesity, although these are much less common causes of obesity than overeating and inactivity. Some examples of these are depression, certain medications (examples are steroids, antidepressants, control pills), Polycystic ovarian syndromePrader-Willi syndrome. The goal of obesity treatment is to reach and stay at a healthy weight. All weight-loss programs focus on eating habits and physical activity.
