Genetic obesity

Genetic play major role on obesity. Obesity is commonly classified depending on suspected etiology: monogenic obesity, Syndromic obesity, and polygenic or common obesity, which affects the general population. Monogenic obesity arises from single gene so it called monogenic obesity. Syndromic obesity arises from discrete genetic defects or chromosomal abnormalities at several genes, and can be autosomal or cross-linked. Both monogenic and syndromic forms of obesity leads to have high penetrance, detection of causal genetic variants has been quite fruitful. It is significance noting that sex and age are associated with differences in obesity and body composition. Women’s will tend to carry more body fat than men’s. There are small several lifestyle changes that may help to reduce risk of obesity that are Regular walk, more fiber intake, limiting television time.
