OBESITY GENETICS

Obesity patient have multiple genes that predispose them to gain excess weight. One such gene is the fat mass and obesity-associated gene (FTO), the presence of these genes causes increased hunger levels, increased caloric intake, reduced satiety, and reduced control over eating, increased tendency to be sedentary, increased tendency to store body fat.  Gene and genome-wide association studies have led to the discovery of nine loci concerned in Mendelian forms of obesity and 58 loci contributes to polygenic obesity.

  • Prader–Willi syndrome
  • Bardet–Biedl syndrome
  • Cohen syndrome
