Overweight is one of the most common health problems.  It is generally caused by nutrition too rich in calories and an unbalanced diet, but there is an individual predisposition associated with specific genetic polymorphisms.

OBESgenes studies genetic polymorphisms linked to the control of appetite, energy expenditure, lipid metabolism, and fat synthesis, and anthropometry of inflammatory process.

These sections are evaluated individually and taken together, allowing OBESgenes profile give a summary of individual predisposition to weight control, a dietary and exercise recommendations, according to each person polymorphisms. We have selected a group of polymorphisms that, according to the literature, provide data that can offer practical recommendations for the patient.

Biological control systems serve to regulate appetite cycles appetite-satiety. These processes require coordination of biological messages between the digestive tract, adipose tissue and brain. Genetic polymorphisms in the gene encoding the hormone leptin (satiety hormone) or encoding ghrelin (hunger hormone) may determine decrease satiety and induce eat more than they should.

A mechanism to expend calories is exercise, but also some genetic polymorphisms may determine that certain individuals, with the same level of exercise to lose less weight, and although exercise is beneficial to health in many ways, in this case weight regulation will be more focused on diet and less exercise. Of particular importance is the study of polymorphisms in genes that regulate the metabolism of fats and fatty tissue formation, because it depends on the tendency to accumulate fat than what should be expected by diet composition amount.

Finally obesity and overweight are associated with the production of the inflammatory process mediator substances from the fat tissue, which can cause harmful side health inflammatory processes and specifically can be initiators atherosclerosis process.

Polymorphisms of genes regulating the synthesis of molecules that mediate inflammation are studied.

With all these data, the profile OBESgenes produced a guide individualized dietary behavior according to each person's genetic predisposition, which will facilitate the implementation of custom life habits to help maintain a healthy weight, and therefore improve standards of health.
