One can manage one’s body weight by checking on Body Mass Index (BMI), which all the doctors, and researchers calculate a person's body weight, taking into account one's height to determine a person's obesity or general overweight/underweight condition. The BMI equals a person’s weight in kilograms divided by height in meters squared (BMI = kg/m2). For adults, a BMI of 30 or more is considered a state of obesity. Also by taking controlled diet with the help of dieticians and by doing regular exercises one can manage their weight and stay healthy.

Session 8Cardiovascular Diseases, Pulmonary Function, Allergy & Immunity

Obesity causes cardiovascular diseases and different sorts of heart diseases including heart attacks. For example hyperlipidaemia, hypertensions, Type 2 Diabetes, metabolic syndrome, sleep apnea. Overweight can prompt coronary illnesses and congestive heart failures.  Weight is associated with diminished individual fulfillment and excess risk for a couple of interminable diseases.

This session focuses its attention on the recent advancements in obesity treatment, the efficacy and effectiveness of such drugs, and the innovativeness in exercises and yoga therapy.

 

Session 11Obesity and Oncology

Bariatric methodology likewise regularly causes hormonal changes. Most weight reduction surgeries today are finished by utilizing negligibly hostile methods such as laparoscopic surgery.

Session 19Diabetic & Endocrine Disorders

Obesity causes diabetes and several endocrine disorders. Diabetes affects how the body regulates blood glucose levels. In diabetes, the body either doesn't produce enough insulin or doesn't respond properly to insulin causing an imbalance between the effects of insulin and glucagon. In type 1 diabetes, the body does not produce enough insulin and so blood glucose becomes too high unless insulin is injected. In type 2 diabetes, the body does not respond effectively to insulin, which can also result in higher than normal blood glucose levels. Medications for type 2diabetes include those which help to increase insulin sensitivity, those which stimulate the pancreas to release more insulin and other medications which inhibit the release of glucagon. This session discusses various aspects of diabetic and endocrine disorders, and the impact of obesity and the treatment interventions 

Session 20Geriatric Obesity, Treatment

Obesity in older people is growing rapidly at alarming rate in the world. The study of geriatric obesity and its management should concentrate more on treatment interventions for geriatric obesity.
