Endogenous Obesity

Endogenous obesity: Description, Causes and Risk Factors:Endogenous obesityEndogenous obesity. As of 2012, it is estimated that approximately 525 million people are obese, according to the American Heart Association (AHA). Of these appropriate percentage suffers from it, which is caused by an endocrine system disruption. The endocrine glands are a complex system of communication that regulates the level of hormones in your body. It is controlled by a delicate feedback system that senses when your hormones are too low or too high and adjusts accordingly.A number of endocrine abnormalities result in endogenous obesity, including tumors that cause your body to secrete too much insulin and the inability of your thyroid to produce enough thyroid hormone. Leptin resistance is another common cause of this, according to Kathryn McCance, author of "The Biologic Basis for Disease." Leptin is a hormone that regulates your fat metabolism. When there is an error, your body continuously stores fat, thinking it does not have enough for your energy needs.Several endocrine abnormalities are reported in this. Some of these abnormalities are considered as causative factors for the development of endogenous obesity, whereas others are considered to be secondary effects of obesity and usually are restored after weight loss.Causative factors may include:Hormonal causes:Hypothyroidism. Genetic syndromes:Prader-Willi syndrome.
