What advancements have been made?

In recent years, obesity has been recognised as a serious medical condition. Scientists have linked the incidence of obesity with certain genes which predispose an individual to this condition. This has proven that obesity is not a disease resulting from weakness, or the daily food or lifestyle choices of the sufferer. It is a serious condition which requires life-long management.

Why is obesity so dangerous?

Obesity is known to be closely linked with a number of other very serious medical conditions. These are just some of the medical problems that are likely to result in patients who are obese… type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, bowel cancer, breast cancer, infertility and polycystic ovaries, fatty liver disease, osteoarthritis, adult onset asthma, high cholesterol, depression, heartburn and reflux and blood clots.

Are you struggling with obesity?

You are not alone… according to Monash University 14 million Australians are overweight or obese. In fact, the prevalence of this condition has more than doubled in the last 20 years and obesity has now overtaken smoking as the leading cause of premature death and illness in Australia.
