Rising levels of obesity are a global problem that is being exported from affluent to developing nations through the gradual westernization of lifestyle. Population of Saudi Arabia is going through a nutrition transition where customary and traditional food is being replaced by fast food high in fat, sugar and salt. This is happening along with changes in lifestyle and reduced physical activity. Interleukin-6 (IL-6) is a central player in the regulation of inflammation, haematopoiesis, immune response and host defense mechanisms. During the last decade, an accumulating amount of data suggested a pivotal role for IL-6 in metabolic processes, thus fortifying the picture of IL-6 as a multifaceted, pleiotropic cytokine. The aim of this work was to study the interaction between genetic polymorphisms (single-nucleotide polymorphisms, SNPs) of pro-and anti-inflammatory cytokine and the risk of developing obesity in modifying disease activity in Saudi Arabia population. Genotyping of IL6 was performed by the real-time polymerase chain reaction technology, using the Taq Man 5'-allele discrimination assay. IL6 (rs1554606) AA vs AG (p<0.01) and AA vs GG (p<0.01) shows significant difference between male and female group in genotypic as well as allelic distribution differ significantly, while AG vs GG did not differ significantly (p>0.5).
