OBJECTIVE- to study the effects of obesity in general population
BACKGROUND- obesity is an epidemic disease. It is excessive or abnormal accumulation of fat in the body, which results into a risk to the general health. In more clinical terms when the Body Mass Index (BMI) is equal to more than 95 percentile for the age and gender it is termed as obesity. Being obese has been an issue for a large number of population including adolescent girls. According to the NHANES data of the year 2013-14, about 20.6% adolescents were considered to have obesity, which means 1 out of every 5 adolescents were obese , and 9.1% were considered to have extreme obesity, which means 1 out of every 11 adolescent were extreme obese. Excessive weight gain during adolescence often persists during adult life, because adolescence is that time of life in which lifelong habits can be established.

And they end up having habits that are not beneficial for a healthy life style. They tend to gain more weight, which in turn produces more complex issues like, hypertension, cardiac issues, mood disorders, liver diseases, reduced insulin sensitivity, chronic issues, pregnancy complications, hormonal imbalance and other issues. Hence it is important that this developmental transition should be maintained by a combined approach of the young individuals, their parents and healthcare practitioners.
RISK FACTORS ASSOCIATED WITH OBESITY- Obesity can be associated with a single factor or it can be a result of a combination of them. Genetic predisposition, unhealthy diet, lifestyle and habits, physical inactivity, psychological factors, economic factors, sleep deprivation are some of the factors associated with obesity. Each of them play a crucial role and some of them can be actually controlled by simply adapting good and healthy habits.
