Obesity is currently one of the most prevalent preventable reasons underlying sudden death right after smoking, and causes a number of other conditions such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, increased risk of cardiovascular disease and higher disposition to cancer. Along with the conditions associated with it, obesity results from a combination of complex reasons, where genetic, environmental, sociological and psychological factors also play a role. Being a complicated category of disease, obesity and metabolic diseases can be treated only by a team of multiple branches, and absolutely require optimal support and follow-up after treatment. All scientists studying in this field emphasize the fact that treatment cannot yield successful outcomes in the long run without getting a firm grasp of the psychological, sociological and individual factors contributing to it or establishing a treatment protocol that actually addresses them.
