Obesity is a chronic disease and has an increasing prevalence as a public health concern associated with the rising numbers of individuals getting Type 2 Diabetes and increased risk for premature death and some cancers. Lifestyle interventions in the form of diet and exercise is always the first line of treatment for obesity, but it is difficult to achieve and maintain weight loss. Surgical treatments also offer an effective alternative for some people with severe obesity, but surgery carries a large risk of complications.
