Obesity is increasing energy reserves as fat. It is, therefore, an increased amount of fat that has the body and not only an increase in weight. Obesity is a chronic disease that depends on genetic factors and environmental factors.
Obesity can be caused by neuro-endocrine problems such as hypothyroidism, polycystic ovary syndrome, etc. Obesity can also be caused by ingestion of certain drugs such as corticosteroids or antidepressants, etc. Other aspects such as the socio-cultural level or psychological disorders can also be related to obesity.
In the treatment of obesity there are two basic pillars: diet and exercise. If an improvement is not achieved, we can start treating obesity with drugs. If obesity is very important (morbid obesity), surgical treatment of obesity it is advised.
How is the treatment of obesity is done?
In the treatment of obesity each patient is unique and we must consult the doctor who made medical history and seek necessary to classify and treat each patient as sees fit tests.
In the treatment of obesity we will make a first assessment by the physician and a metabolism study with Indirect Calorimetry. Indirect Calorimetry measures the energy expenditure, ie the energy that the body needs to maintain your weight and perform their functions, and the nutritional needs of each person. In the treatment of obesity, Indirect Calorimetry allow us to make a personalized diet with caloric needs of the patient and type of nutrients it uses better. Indirect calorimetry is not an annoying test takes about 30 minutes and is done early in the day.
We will also make genetic testing for obesity. Genetic obesity test can analyze the genetic predisposition to obesity and disorders related to obesity, such as dyslipidaemia. Genetic obesity test also reveals the individual interventions to reduce obesity and determine the nutritional needs genetically determined response.
In the treatment of obesity, with the results of the indirect calorimetry and genetic testing for obesity, dietitians conduct a personalized diet for each patient and will be tracked by the specialist physician and dietitians for two months.
The results of analyzed genetic polymorphisms may take longer than the usual 21 days.
