Obesity

Acting Against The Silent Epidemic

Overview

Obesity is the root of multiple diseases that affect a person from head to toe. Despite that obesity is not considered as a serious health issue, as many do not accept the need to reduce their weight and focus on fitness.

This ignorance has led to obesity being one of the major health challenges across the world. Also, this is the first time in the history of medicine that a disease has reached epidemic proportions, and yet is fighting to get itself labelled as a “disease”. Obesity is a silent killer. You never understand how bad it is unless you fall sick and are hospitalised. We really wish no one should face it.

India is 3rd in terms of Obese populous in the world along with being the world’s diabetic capital. Although bariatric surgery is the only method that leads to sustained weight loss in the morbidly obese, less than 1% of the eligible population is actually using the benefits of surgery.
