Genetics of Obesity

Obesity could be a complex disease ensuing from the interactions of a wide type of hereditary and environmental factors. The combined progress in quantitative genetics, genetic science and bioinformatics has contributed to a better understanding of the genetic and molecular basis of obesity. Clustering of cases among a family, the harmoniousness of weight for monozygotic twins, and therefore the discovery of genes related to obesity are all arguments reinforcing the genetic dimension of obesity. In a study conducted by the National Institute of diabetes and digestive and excretory organ Diseases, the resting metabolic rates of over five hundred volunteers were analyzed and located to vary from burning as few as 1,067 calories daily to as several as three,015 calories. Genes also play a role in how our bodies react to exercise.
