Obesity is a chronic problem, with patients frequently yo-yoing between their “thin “and “fat “wardrobe, constantly on and off diets, gaining and losing weight in a viciously continuous cycle.
Obesity is associated with a negative health impact for affected patients. Quality of life and life expectancy are poorer. Cardiovascular risk surges, there is an increased risk of diabetes, high incidence of joint and skeletal pathologies, and increased risks of cancers such as breast and colon cancer.
Many patients with obesity suffer from metabolic syndrome. Metabolic syndrome is characterised by increased abdominal fat (apple shapes), high cholesterol, high blood pressure and insulin.
