Complications of obesity
Learn about the complications associated with obesity that can affect people’s health.
Obesity is a chronic disease that affects over 764 million adults
worldwide.1 It has a substantial health impact with 200+
possible complications affecting many organs and
systems.2,3 As a result, healthcare professionals (HCPs)
see patients with obesity throughout their clinical practice and
widely recognise it as a serious, chronic disease that often
relapses.4 Yet, the number of people living with obesity
continues to rise, highlighting the need to provide medical
professionals with evidence-based tools to tackle the growing global
obesity epidemic effectively.
By understanding the scientific principles that underlie the development of obesity and identifying challenges in an evidence-based manner, barriers to effective obesity management can be overcome. Rethink Obesity® aims to provide this science based information, in an easily accessible manner, to healthcare professionals so they are able to enhance their clinical practice and achieve sustainable results for their patients living with obesity.
