Obesity and inflammation

Time: 6:00 pm

In the UK, rates of obesity have increased by 30% in women, 40% in men, and 50% in children within the last decade resulting in over 25% of adults classified as obese today.

Obesity, in particular central obesity, is the dominant risk factor for insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome and type II diabetes. Evidence supporting obesity as an inflammation condition continues to grow and this is directly linked to the development of insulin resistance.

This webinar discusses novel approaches for the treatment and prevention of the common morbidities associated with obesity, specifically insulin resistance and type II diabetes, through targeting obesity-induced inflammatory processes.
