Genetics of Obesity


Obesity is a genetic condition. Obesity is a complicated condition caused by the combination of a number of inherited and environmental variables. Under particular dietary settings, Polymorphisms in multiple genes involved in hunger and metabolism make people more susceptible to obesity. The melanocortin 4 receptor gene mutation may be responsible for tens of thousands of cases of obesity. Obesity that runs in families can be caused by a monogenic type of genetic mutation. Obesity can be induced by gene mutation, as evidenced by the occurrence of monogenic types of obesity. Obesity's most common forms are caused by genetic differences in a large number of genes.
