Track 1: Current research on Obesity

Obesity is a medical condition in which excess percentage of adipose tissue has accumulated to the extent that it may have a negative effect on health, leading to reduced life expectancy and/or increased health problems. In Western countries, people are considered obese when their body mass index (BMI), a measurement obtained by dividing a person's weight by the square of the person's height, exceeds 30 kg/m2, with the range 25-30 kg/m2 defined as overweight. In earlier historical periods obesity was rare, and achievable only by small elite, although already recognized as a problem for health. But as prosperity increased in the Early Modern period, it affected increasingly larger groups of the population. In 1997 the WHO formally recognized obesity as a global epidemic. As of 2008 the WHO estimates that at least 500 million adults (greater than 10%) are obese, with higher rates among women than men. The rate of obesity also increases with age at least up to 50 or 60 years old and severe obesity in the United States, Australia, and Canada is increasing faster than the overall rate of obesity.

Once considered a problem only of high-income countries, obesity Events rates are raising worldwide and affecting both the developed and developing world. These increases have been felt most dramatically in urban settings. The only remaining region of the world where obesity is not common is sub-Saharan Africa. Obesity is a complex disease resulting from the interactions of a wide variety of hereditary and environmental factors. The combined progress in quantitative genetics, genomics and bioinformatics has contributed to a better understanding of the genetic and molecular basis of obesity.

Track 2: Genetic Obesity

Genetics of Obesity has always existed in human populations, but until very recently was comparatively rare. The availability of abundant, energy-rich processed foods in the last few decades has, however, resulted in a sharp rise in the prevalence of obesity in westernized countries like Android Obesity  and Gynoid Obesity Familiar resemblance in Obesity phenotypes is caused not only by genetic factors but also by the environmental factors associated with the lifestyle and the culture. Body Mass Index (BMI) is most frequently studied measure of fatness. Heritability of trait can be estimated by modeling interfamilial correlations for different types of relatives. Polymorphisms in various genes controlling appetite and metabolism predispose to obesity under certain Ornish diet. The percentage of obesity that can be attributed to genetics varies widely, depending on the population examined, from 6% to 85%.

Track 3: Obesity and Cancer

Overweight and obesity are associated with increased risk for many types of cancer, including cancer of the breast, colon, endometrium, esophagus, kidney, pancreas, gall bladder, thyroid, ovary, cervix, and prostate, as well as multiple myeloma and Hodgkin’s lymphoma. People who are obese have more adipose tissue that can produce hormones, such as insulin or estrogen, which may cause cancer cells to grow. Many studies have shown that overweight and obesity are associated with a modest increase in risk of postmenopausal breast cancer. This higher risk is seen mainly in women who have never used menopausal hormone therapy (MHT) and for tumors that express both estrogen and progesterone receptors. Stronger evidence comes from studies of patients who have undergone bariatric surgery for weight reduction. Obese people who have Weight loss Surgery (bariatric surgery) appear to have lower rates of obesity related cancers than obese people who did not have bariatric surgery.

Track 4: Obesity- Health Risks

Excessive body weight is associated with various diseases, particularly cardiovascular diseases, diabetes mellitus type 2, obstructive sleep apnea, and certain types of cancers, osteoarthritis and asthma. Obesity increases the risk of many physical and mental conditions. These comorbidities are most commonly shown in metabolic syndrome, a combination of medical disorders which includes: type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, and high triglyceride levels conferences. As your body mass index rises, so does your risk for coronary heart disease (CHD). CHD is a condition in which a waxy substance called plaque (plak) builds up inside the coronary arteries. These arteries supply oxygen-rich blood to your heart. Being overweight and obesity can lead to a buildup of plaque in your arteries. Eventually, an area of plaque can rupture, causing a blood clot to form. Diabetes Statistics Diabetes is a disease in which the body's blood glucose, or blood sugar, level is too high. Normally, the body breaks down food into glucose and then carries it to cells throughout the body. The cells use a hormone called insulin to turn the glucose into energy.

Track 5: Weight Loss Nutrition

Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight isn't just about an "Ornish diet" or "program". It is part of an ongoing lifestyle that you can adopt now and stay with for years to come. A combination of more physical activity and a suitable nutrient rich but energy controlled Weight loss diet is recommended for overweight/obese adults who wish for weight management. Regular physical activity reduces the risk for many diseases, helps control weight, and strengthens muscles, bones, and joints. CDC's Division of Nutrition, Physical Activity, and Obesity meetings (DNPAO) utilizes a public health approach to address the role of nutrition and physical activity in improving the public's health and preventing and controlling chronic diseases. The scope of DNPAO activities includes leadership, policy and guidelines development, surveillance, epidemiological and behavioral research, intervention development, technical assistance to states and communities, training and education, communication, and partnership development. Maintaining activity throughout life is important for preventing obesity, and increasing a person’s physical activity level is an important element in any weight loss management program.

Track 6: Bariatric Surgery – Advantages & Complications

Bariatric surgery (weight loss surgery) includes a variety of procedures performed on people who have obesity. Weight reduction is achieved by reducing the size of the stomach with a gastric band or through removal of a portion of the stomach (sleeve gastrectomy or biliopancreatic diversion with duodenal switch) or by resecting and re-routing the small intestine to a small stomach pouches (gastric bypass surgery). For obese patients, surgical intervention is an option and is frequently the treatment of choice. Non-surgical Weightloss techniques use laser energy, radiofrequency, ultrasound or cold (cryolipolysis) to reduce fat. Although fat loss is more subtle with non-surgical lipolysis techniques compared to surgical liposuction, non-surgical lipolysis techniques have several advantages including reduced risk, reduced cost, and reduced healing time. Plastic surgery can play a very important part relative to rapid weight loss.  It is already well known that fat pads can be removed either by aesthetic or plastic surgery. More recently, surgeons have been exploring methods of plastic reconstruction after massive weight-loss, such as that obtained after digestive surgery. Bariatric surgeons should be aware that some of their patients will need heavy and painful reconstructive procedures. After common plastic surgery procedures, obese patients have more complications and make more hospital visits-leading to higher healthcare costs.

Track 7: Endocrinal & Hormonal Obesity

Endocrinology is a branch of biology and medicine dealing with the endocrine system, its diseases, and its specific secretions known as hormones which cause Obesity on improper balance. It is also concerned with the integration of developmental events proliferation, growth, and differentiation, and the psychological or behavioral activities of metabolism, growth and development, tissue function, sleep, digestion, respiration, excretion, mood and sensory perception caused by hormones. Eating disorders leads to hormonal imbalance. A neuroendocrine signal is a "classical" hormone that is released into the blood by a neurosecretory neuron. Endocrine disruptors are chemicals that may interfere with the body’s endocrine system and produce adverse developmental, reproductive, neurological, and immune effects in both humans and wildlife. Overweight and Obesity is highly associated with various endocrine abnormalities that are characterized by hormonal imbalance and/or resistance. Weight reduction generally normalizes these endocrine alterations, implicating obesity as a direct cause.

Track 8: Obesity during Pregnancy- Health complications

Obesity in Pregnancy has a major impact on your health and your baby's health. Find out about the possible complications, recommendations for ideal body weight and what you can do to promote a healthy pregnancy. Being obese can harm your fertility by inhibiting normal ovulation. Obesity can also affect the outcome of in vitro fertilization (IVF). As a woman's Body Mass Index increases, so does the risk of unsuccessful IVF. Women who are obese are more likely to have diabetes that develops during pregnancy (gestational diabetes) than are women who have a weight loss diet. Women who are obese during pregnancy are at increased risk of urinary tract infections. Obesity also increases the risk of postpartum infection, whether the baby is delivered vaginally or by C-section.

Track 9: Obesity medications

Most rapid weight-loss medicines for obesity work by making you feel less hungry or making you feel full sooner. They are used together with very low calorie diet and exercise. Medicine is generally used only for those who have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher. But they sometimes are used for those with a BMI of 27 or higher who are at risk for high blood pressure, lipid metabolism, coronary artery disease, type 2 diabetes, and sleep apnea. Orlistat (Alli) is also available over the counter. Alli contains half of the medicine that is in Xenical. Over-the-counter orlistat is not meant for use by anyone under the age of 18.

Track 10: Liposuction & advanced weight loss treatments

Lipid metabolism is an invasive procedure used to improve body contour by removing areas of fat they’ve been resistant to diet and exercise. It's important to note that lipo is not intended to significantly reduce weight, cellulite, or sagging skin. Hundreds of diets, weight-loss programs and outright scams promise quick and easy weight loss. However, the foundation of successful weight management remains a healthy, calorie-controlled diet combined with exercise. For successful, long-term weight loss, you must make permanent changes in your lifestyle and health fitness. Overweight and obesity affects more than 66% of the adult population and is associated with a variety of chronic diseases. Weight reduction reduces health risks associated with chronic diseases and is therefore encouraged by major health agencies. Incorporating more physical activity into a weight loss plan can maximize fat cells congress, preserve lean tissue, improve fitness and offer other health benefits.

Track 11: Statistical & Clinical analysis

Weight management is a long-term approach to a healthy lifestyle. It includes a balance of Weight loss diet and physical exercise to equate energy expenditure and energy intake. Treatments for obesity range from healthy eating and exercise, to prescription medicine and surgery. FDA-regulated weight loss medical devices have also played a role in treating obesity. Currently, there are three FDA-approved devices on the market designed to treat obesity: Lap-Band Gastric Banding System, Realize Gastric Band, and The Maestro Rechargable System. When assessing popular diets, it’s important to understand that a person’s food preferences, lifestyle and medical conditions should be taken into account when choosing the Ornish diet. Also Dietary Intake needs to be a lifestyle change and can’t just be for a short term amount of time. Along with diet, exercise, and behavior modification, drug therapy may be a helpful component of treatment for patients who are overweight or obese. The role of drug therapy has been questioned, however, because of concerns about efficacy, safety, and the observation that body fat conferences slows and then plateaus with continued treatment, and most patients regain weight when their weight-loss drugs are stopped. Diet pills events can be useful adjuncts to diet and exercise for adults with obesity and a BMI greater than 30 kg/m2, who have failed to achieve weight loss goals through diet and exercise alone.

Track 12: Psychological and Social factors causing Obesity

Society views obesity very negatively and tends to believe that people who are obese are “weak-willed” and “unmotivated”. Obese individuals are often aware of these negative views, and internalize them, putting themselves at risk for disorders of mood, anxiety, and substance abuse. They perceive interpersonal and work-related discrimination, often suffer from low self-esteem as a result, and feel uncomfortable with their bodies (i.e. body mass Cosmopolitan). These feelings may lead to strain on their intimate and romantic relationships. 20-70% of obese individuals considering bariatric surgery suffer from a current and/or past psychiatric disorder, of which Major Depressive Disorder is the most prominent. Obese individuals have typically made multiple attempts to lose weight, with little or no success. Their failed attempts result in discouragement, frustration, hopelessness, and learned helplessness about the prospect of losing weight in the future on their own. The diabetic diet and physical activity behaviors of children and adolescents are influenced by many sectors of society, including families, communities, schools, child care settings, medical care providers, faith-based institutions, government agencies, the media, and the food and beverage industries and entertainment industries.

Track 13: Control & Prevention of Obesity

Obesity Prevention and maintain an ideal body weight, eat a weight loss diet and exercise regularly. Preventing obesity is important. Once fat cells form, they remain in your body forever. Although you can reduce the size of Fatty acids, you cannot get rid of them. To effectively lose weight, most people need to do moderate intensity exercise for 60 minutes most days of the week and include fat burning foods. Add more activity during the day. Take the stairs and get up often from your desk or sofa. Law has played a critical role in the control of chronic diseases and the behaviors that lead to them. The use of a systematic legal framework—the use of legislation, regulation, and policy to address the multiple factors that contribute to obesogenic environments—can assist in the development, implementation, and evaluation of a variety of legal approaches for obesity prevention and control.

Obesity Conference-2016 focuses on bringing together diverse stakeholders to share knowledge, leverage partnerships and identify collective solutions to increase access to healthy foods, Obesity Diet and increase opportunities for people to be physically active and fight Obesity and Weight Management

 In the US, the adult obesity (symposiums) rate for 2014 is 27.7 %, according to new Gallup-Health ways data which was 27.1% in the year 2013, highest annual rate ever measured by the polling organization. So far this year, only 35 % are considered "normal weight." Obesity which was recently recognized as a disease by the American Medical Association disproportionately affects certain demographic groups. According to it black adults still have the highest obesity rate of any group (35.5 %), while young adults between ages 18 and 29 have the lowest (17.0 %). The obesity rate was highest in the South (29.2 %), followed by the Midwest (28.6 %), while in the eastern United States, 25.6 % of adults are obese, and in the West, 24.1 % are obese. Individuals with BMI values of 30 or above are considered "obese." A BMI of 25 to 29.9 lands someone in the "overweight" category. People with a BMI of 18.5 to 24.9 are classified as "normal weight," while those with a score of 18.4 or less are considered "underweight." The global weight loss/obesity Research market was worth $265 billion in the year 2012 and is expected to reach $361 billion by 2017. The Obesity treatment market will grow at a healthy pace in the next five years due to increasing number of lifestyle diseases such as diabetes and cardiac problems and many more.

Scope and Importance:

•        The United States is facing a serious epidemic. Recent nationwide surveys reveal that 66 percent of adults have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 25 or greater, classifying them as either "overweight" or "obese." Unfortunately, this epidemic is not only affecting adults. We are now seeing increasing numbers of overweight children and teens. As the weight of Americans rises, so do the secondary risks associated with obesity. These risks include cardiovascular disease, hypertension, dyslipidemia, type 2 diabetes, stroke, osteoarthritis and even cancer. The Obesity research chart below shows how in the U.S., for instance, poor diet and lack of adequate physical activity are the second leading underlying causes of death, second only to tobacco use. The solution to overcome this worldwide spreading problem is studied during the Obesity events.  

•       Researchers reported that the risk of developing diabetes, gallstones, hypertension (high blood pressure), heart disease, and stroke increased progressively with the level of being overweight among both women and men. The most obese members of the study population were 20 times more likely to develop diabetes than their normal weight peers. This Obesity conference may provide a comprehensive study Obesity treatment on weight loss and fitness management.

Why Dallas?

Obesity is a complex multifactorial disorder characterized by the excessive accumulation and storage of fat in the body. Obesity is linked to serious and costly health problems, including diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease. Given that the city contributes more than $65 million to its health plan each year, there’s a hefty pile of taxpayers’ dollars on the line.

The city of Dallas is far from alone in facing the obesity epidemic, which has ballooned across the United States in recent years. Based on the above mentioned reasons, obesity 2016 has decided to be held in Dallas, USA.

Obesity in Texas reached a high of 30.9 percent last year, after what seemed like a promising if slight decline in 2012, according to a report released recently.

Two years ago, Texas obesity slipped from 30.4 percent to 29.2 percent, a decline that disappeared in recent findings. In 1990, only 1 in 10 Texans was obese.

Analysts with Trust for America’s Health, which compiled the report using federal data, said the increase in Texas last year wasn’t large enough to be statistically significant. But the estimates are probably conservative because they are self-reported by Texans randomly chosen in a telephone survey. The national obesity rate, which is measured by what people actually weigh, hit 34.8 percent last year.

The report estimates that Texas cases of adult-onset diabetes could rise from about 2 million in 2010 to 2.85 million in 2030. Cases of obesity-related cancer in the state could climb from 328,379 to 810,806. Studies show that and single who's going through extensive learning often indulges on food to help release stress. People dealing with stress generally find eating as method to help ease or cope with their problems leading to obese.

The global weight loss and weight management market is expected to reach $206.4 billion by 2019 from $148.1 billion in 2014, growing at a CAGR of 6.9% from 2014 to 2019.The weight loss and weight management market is segmented on the basis of diet (meal, beverage, and supplement), equipment (fitness and surgical equipment), and service. The diet segment is expected to account for the largest share of the weight loss and weight management market in 2014. Valued at more than $130 million in 2009, the U.S. obesity drugs market is expected to grow at a healthy compound annual rate of 4.0%, with sales reaching nearly $160 million in 2014. Despite the conservatively modest 5-year forecast, a substantial number of novel drugs, including those indicated for type 2 diabetes, are being developed and studied for the treatment of obesity and may reach the market over the next decade, when the market is optimistically expected to expand exponentially.

Market Value of Obesity in World

Obesity is one of biggest public health issues in all countries around the world.  In 2006, the number of overweight people in the world over took the number of malnourished underweight people for the first time. Since 1980 obesity rate have doubled or tripled in many OECD countries. Today 50 % or more of the population is overweight in almost half of OECD countries.  The chart below shows the past and forecasted weight incidences for selected OECD countries.

 

While the U.S has long topped world obesity rankings a high incidence of overweight and obese people has increasingly become a worldwide phenomenon afflicting developing as well as developed countries.  In China, overweight rates doubled from 13.5 to 26.7 % between 1991 and 2006 according to the OECD, while the prevalence of diabetes reportedly reached a level similar to the U.S at over 92 million obese.  In Brazil, obesity rates tripled in men and almost doubled in women between 1975 and 2003.

In January, 2011 CNN reported on OECD data indicating Mexico has the world’s highest national share of people 15 and older who are overweight or obesity at 69.5 %of the population.  Mexico’s Institute for Public Health reports that diabetes of which obesity is a contributing factor is the leading cause of mortality in the country.

Adults with a Body Mass Index over 30 are generally considered obese, while those with a BMI over 25 but less than 30 are classified as weight.  BMI can be calculated by the formula weight (kg) / [height (m)] 2 .The corresponding BMI with the same risk level may be higher / lower than 30 for some ethnic groups.  The chart below shows the overweight and obesity % for the OECD countries.

 

 

The global obesity therapy marketed in 2012 and a projection for 2022. The market is projected to increase at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of more than 35 % from 0.4 billion U.S. dollars in 2012 to some 8.4 billion in 2022.

 

 

Fund Allotment to obesity Research

Obesity nearing $150 billion annually childhood obesity remains a pressing public health concern. Taxpayers fund about $60 billion of these costs through Medicare & Medicaid.  If obesity rates are reduced by as little as 5 %, health care savings could exceed $29 billion. The past three decades and today, an estimated 16.9 % of U.S. children and adolescents ages 2 to 19 are obesity, 31.7 % are either obesity or overweight. In sheer numbers, more than 12 million American children and adolescents are obesity and more than 23 million are either obesity or overweight. In one large study, 61 % of overweight 5 to 10 year olds already had at least one risk factor for heart disease and 26 % had two or more risk factors. There is a 70 % chance that an overweight adolescent will be overweight or obese as an adult.

By adulthood, obesity associated heart disease, some cancers, stroke, type 2 diabetes are the first, second, third, and seventh leading U.S causes of death. Moreover obesity is costly.  Among children and adolescents, annual hospital costs related to obesity were $127 million during 1997 to 1999 up from $35 million during 1979–1981. From 1987 to 2001, obesity-associated diseases accounted for 27 % of the increases in U.S. medical costs.
