Diabetes and Obesity

Central obesity as well as obesity is generally associated with physiological changes, that may cause the development of diseases like high blood pressure, heart disease, high blood cholesterol and type 2 diabetes. Diabetes is defined as the failure of the body to regulate and control the blood sugar levels. Obesity is a complex disease that is related with a number of comorbidities, exaggerated mortality and reduced quality of life. With the rise in obesity among the adult population, the cost burden is predicted to increase substantially: the combined medical costs associated with treatment of obesity-related diseases, cardiovascular diseases and diabetes, in the US alone have been estimated to increase by $48-66 billion/year from 2010-2030 according to Endocrine Facts and Figures.
