Summary The prevalence of morbid obesity has been shown to be increasing at an even greater rate than general obesity in many developed countries and is likely to continue to ncrease. The high risks of a range of chronic diseases associated with morbid obesity make this a critical ealthcare challenge. Although comprehensive epidemiologic data are not yet available for all the health risks associated with morbid obesity, it is likely to be associated with very high risks of diseases with a large impact on the individual and the health system, including diabetes, cardiovascular disease, sleep apnea, cancer, osteoarthritis, infertility, depression, and mortality.
