ABSTRACT

Obesity is one of the biggest health problems in the world. It is not only a key developer of various dangerous diseases like coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes mellitus, and sleep apnoea, but is also associated with high mortality and morbidity rate. In recent years, doctors have shifted their attention towards the prevention and treatment of obesity rather than letting the person move towards different diseases and then curing those multiple disorders. One of those strategies for obesity treatment includes bariatric surgery. This review paper encapsulates multiple other strategies like dietary, pharmaceutical, and surgical options available at present for the treatment of obesity.

Keywords: Obesity, weight, diabetes, heart disease.
