Diet Congress 2018

About Conference


Conference Series cheerfully welcomes you all to its “World Congress on Diet, Nutrition and Obesity” covering the recent issues in the epidemiology and treatment of nutrition anomalies. It has a broad objective of tackling global nutrition and obesity challenges with the aid of advanced dietetics, treatments and research implications.

The “World Congress on Diet, Nutrition and Obesity” is a global forum to propound and learn about the concatenated nature of diet, nutrition and obesity. Malnutrition is a critical public health emergency in the recent days due to its consequential effects on physical health, mental health and on the community as a whole. The UNICEF-2017 edition of Joint Child Malnutrition Estimates show that over-weight in children continues to rise at dismaying rates. Recent WHO estimates show that the worldwide prevalence of obesity is more than doubled between 1980 and 2014.

This event brings together leading academicians, dieticians, nutritionists, researchers, sports nutritionists, neo-nutritionists, scientists, endocrinologists, students, psychiatrists, statisticians, demographists, health-care professionals and business delegates to discuss novel, radical ideas and arrive at a promising conclusion for the betterment of the upcoming generations. This "World Congress on Diet, Nutrition and Obesity" strives to discuss such issues, the inter-relatedness of these three components in ensuring good health and the elimination of detrimental, fatal and cognitive ailments of mankind.

Conference Series is conducting its “World Congress on Diet, Nutrition and Obesity” at Dubai, UAE, from September 24-25, 2018.  This event will provide healthcare practitioners a study of the key role of nutrition and diet in weight management. The World Congress on Diet, Nutrition and Obesity is aimed to give an opportunity to the experts in the field of nutrition balance to examine the most recent progressions and difficulties in the field. This congress is intended to give a potent stage to Nutritionists and dieticians, different specialists and students employed in the field to consider and share their encounters before an expansive global meeting of people. The gathering invites Presidents, CEOs, Delegates and modern officials from Industrial and Academic sectors to take part in the instinctive investigative sessions, B2B gatherings and board talks.

Diet and health

The human race is facing two extremities in alarming proportions, where the prevalence of obesity as well as under-nutrition among various communities is having a significant effect on the over-all health of children, i.e., the future generation. The three different implications of malnutrition are: Obesity, Stunted growth and Wasting. Stunted growth and wasting are caused due to poor nutrition, affecting people below the poverty line. Under-nutrition at the initial years of life leads to impairment of cognitive functions, which may become irreversible after a period of time. Under-nutrition also leads to very poor growth and muscle wastage. Malnutrition is a critical public health emergency in the recent days due to its consequential effects on physical health, mental health and on the community as a whole. The UNICEF-2017 edition of Joint Child Malnutrition Estimates show that over-weight in children continues to rise at dismaying rates. Of all, Africa and Asia show the highest rates of all forms of malnutrition. Wasting is a critical public health emergency status in Southern Asia, where more than 15% of children are wasted due to under-nutrition. Globally, 66% of all stunted children live in lower-middle-income countries; 44% of all overweight children live in lower-middle-income countries; 75% of all wasted children live in lower-middle-income countries. A balanced diet is important because your organs and tissues need proper nutrition to work effectively. Without good nutrition, your body is more prone to disease, infection, fatigue, and poor performance. Children with a poor diet run the risk of growth and developmental problems and poor academic performance, and bad eating habits can persist for the rest of their lives. Rising levels of obesity and diabetes in America are prime examples of the effects of a poor diet and a lack of exercise. The Centre for Science in the Public Interest reports that 4 of the top 10 leading causes of death in the United States are directly influenced by diet. These are: heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes. The Australian Dietary Guidelines use the best available scientific evidence to provide information on the types and amounts of foods, food groups and dietary patterns that aim to promote health and wellbeing, reduce the risk of diet-related conditions and reduce the risk of chronic disease.  Dietary Guidelines are for use by health professionals, policy makers, educators, food manufacturers, food retailers and researchers and encourage healthy dietary patterns to promote and maintain the nutrition-related health and wellbeing of the population. The content of dietary Guidelines applies to all healthy people, as well as those with common diet-related risk factors such as being overweight.

Diet and appetite

A healthy appetite is always important to ensure the regulation of the physiological and metabolic functions of the body. A good appetite ensures the body to get along with our inner biological clocks and maintain homeostasis. Eating Disorders describe illnesses that are characterized by irregular eating habits and severe distress or concern about body weight or shape. Eating disturbances may include inadequate or excessive food intake which can ultimately damage an individual’s well-being. The most common forms of eating disorders include Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, and Binge Eating Disorder and affect both females and males. Eating disturbances may include inadequate or excessive food intake which can ultimately damage an individual’s well-being. The most common forms of eating disorders include Anorexia Nervosa, Bulimia Nervosa, and Binge Eating Disorder and affect both females and males. Eating disorders can develop during any stage in life but typically appear during the teen years or young adulthood. Classified as a medical illness, appropriate treatment can be highly effectual for many of the specific types of eating disorders. Food intake is promoted by hormones signalling hunger, the availability of high calorie palatable foods, and learned food preferences. It is inhibited by leptin and other hormones that generate satiety, including insulin and gut-derived hormones. A chronic imbalance between hunger and satiety signals leads to long term alterations in food intake and body weight. Thus, along with psychological and environmental factors, molecular mechanisms also play an important role in regulating food intake and metabolism.

Weight-loss diets

Diets planned for weight-loss often emphasize on reducing fat and sugar intake, and adding a good amount of proteins, vegetables and other micronutrients instead. There are many types of diets for weight loss, based on the overall health of the individual, geographical background and other medical conditions if any. Popular weight-loss diets include Vegetarian diets, Paleo-diets and fad diets. Though these diets are popular and claim to show visible results, allegations of quackery surround them. Most vegetarian diets are low in or devoid of animal products. They’re also usually lower than non-vegetarian diets in total fat, saturated fat and cholesterol. Many studies have shown that vegetarians seem to have a lower risk of obesity, coronary heart disease (which causes heart attack), high blood pressure, diabetes mellitus and some forms of cancer. Vegetarian diets can be healthful and nutritionally sound if they’re carefully planned to include essential nutrients. Many researches indicate it is our modern diet, full of refined foods, trans fats and sugar, that is at the root of degenerative diseases such as obesity, cancer, diabetes, heart disease, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s, depression and infertility. So, avoiding processed and refined foods and adapting to the eating habits of our ancestors are believed to ensure good health and reduce the risk of ailments.

Diets for medical conditions

Not everyone is motivated to change their eating habits for the same reasons. Many people diet to attain a slimmer appearance, but other times health risks and concerns inspire people to make lifestyle dietary changes for better health. Food and diet can have a significant impact on various health conditions. Diets planned for specific medical conditions involve the cutting down of foods that aggravate the medical conditions and incudes foods that improve the metabolic pathways associated with the condition. Popular medical diets include diabetic diet, gluten-free diet, lactose-free diet, DASH diet, ketogenic diet, etc.

Dietary supplements and functional foods

A dietary supplement is a product intended for ingestion that contains a "dietary ingredient" intended to add further nutritional value to (supplement) the diet. A "dietary ingredient" may be one, or any combination, of the following substances: a vitamin, mineral, herb or other botanical, amino acid, dietary substance for use by people to supplement the diet by increasing the total dietary intake, a concentrate, metabolite, constituent, or extract.

Dietary supplements may be found in many forms such as tablets, capsules, soft gels, gel caps, liquids, or powders. Some dietary supplements can help ensure that you get an adequate dietary intake of essential nutrients; others may help you reduce your risk of disease.  Some popular dietary supplements include herbal supplements, whole food supplements or functional foods from plant and animal sources that help in treating medical conditions, prevent illnesses or boost metabolic processes. Processed foods are fortified or enriched with nutrients to enhance the nutritive value of the food, or to compensate the lack of a specific nutrition in a particular dietary habit.

Nutritional epidemiology

Nutritional epidemiology is an area which focusses on monitoring the role of nutrition in the progress or weaning of a disease. Nutritional epidemiology records also help in arriving at a proper dietetic plan for developing healthy eating patterns among populations. A nutritional deficiency occurs when the body doesn’t absorb or get from food the necessary amount of a nutrient. Deficiencies can lead to a variety of health problems. These can include digestion problems, skin disorders and also birth defects. Recent novel eras of research are opening for the effective management of obesity though gene and nutrient intake interactions because the causes of obesity are complex and multifactorial. Through genome-wide association studies and genetic variations (SNPs, single nucleotide polymorphisms), the genetic factors are likely to determine individuals’ obesity predisposition. The understanding of genetic approaches in nutritional sciences is referred as “nutrigenomics”. Nutrigenomics explores the interaction between genetic factors and dietary nutrient intake on various disease phenotypes such as obesity. Therefore, this novel approach might suggest a solution for the effective prevention and treatment of obesity through individual genetic profiles and help improve health conditions.

Nutrition and obesity

Modern diet patterns are filled with high calories, highly refined and processed foods and less nutritive value, in spite of sedentary lifestyles. A prolonged mal-nutritive pattern may lead to detrimental effects and cause a variety of diseases. It may lead to obesity, which in turn invite opportunistic diseases like diabetes, cancer, nutrition deficiency diseases, cardiovascular ailments and neurodegenerative disorders. Thus, a proper and planned calorie intake and portion sizes are important in preventive medicine for obesity. Since each individual has a different genetic composition, every individual shows different responses to diet and medication. With advances in nutriomics and nutrigenomics, medicine is expected to advance in a way such that diet, nutrition and medication are personalized for each individual based on their genetic make-up.

Lifestyle changes and Nutrition transition

The western diet is mainly composed of 50% carbohydrates, 15% proteins and 35% fats, according to research reports. Due to industrial revolution, this unhealthy diet pattern is spreading to other parts of the world as well. A key component is modern food distribution and sales. This reflects the enormous penetration of super- and mega-market companies throughout the developing world. Most countries also have large convenience store chains. The fresh market (wet or open public market) is disappearing as the major source of food in the developing world. These markets are being replaced by large regional and local supermarkets, which are usually part of multinational chains or, in countries such as South Africa and China, by domestic chains that function and look like the global chains. Increasingly, hypermarkets (megastores) are the major force driving changing food expenditures in a country or a region. In comparison, supermarkets accounted for 80 per cent of retail food sales in the United States in 2000. This process is also occurring at varying rates in Asia, Eastern Europe, the Middle East, and all urban areas of Africa. There is also a high increase in the intake of dairy and poultry products throughout the world.  Such diet transitions are accompanied by the presence of harmful residues in food like pesticide residues, antibiotic residues and chemical fertilizer residues, which can cause several health implications when consumed over a long period of time. Antibiotic residues in meat can cause a variety of metabolic disorders when ingested. GM foods are also having a part in our dietary patterns, which have recently been reported to increase the incidence of obesity amongst populations. GM corn has shown to increase appetite and weight gain in animal models. Increasing awareness towards such unhealthy transitions, by public interest initiatives have made people opt for Organic foods. Organic foods involve cultivation of foods on lands that use only organic means and no chemical fertilizers in any way. Such foods must also be from any artificial processing, ripening and additives. Though organic foods are free chemicals, the economics of organic foods make it harder for a wide outreach of these foods.

Paediatric nutrition

The right amount of nutrition during foetal development and also during the initial years of life is very important for proper development of vital organs and functions. Any deficiency in nutrition at such stages may lead to severe congenital defects and irreversible damage to the vital organs of the body. One of the factors that is most significantly linked to paediatric obesity is a sedentary lifestyle. Each additional hour of television per day increased the prevalence of obesity by 2%. Television viewing among young children and adolescents has increased dramatically in recent years. The increased amount of time spent in sedentary behaviour has decreased the amount of time spent in physical activity. Research which indicates the number of hours children spend watching TV correlates with their consumption of the most advertised goods, including sweetened cereals, sweets, sweetened beverages, and salty snacks. Childhood obesity can profoundly affect children's physical health, social, and emotional well-being, and self-esteem. It is also associated with poor academic performance and a lower quality of life experienced by the child.

Childhood obesity has been linked to numerous medical conditions. These conditions include, but are not limited to, fatty liver disease, sleep apnea, Type 2 diabetes, asthma, hepatic steatosis (fatty liver disease), cardiovascular disease, high cholesterol, cholelithiasis (gallstones), glucose intolerance and insulin resistance, skin conditions, menstrual abnormalities, impaired balance, and orthopaedic problems.

Nutrition in Women's health and pregnancy

Nutrition is always important in the onset and regulation of sexual development and cycles. Several studies showed that maternal exposure to unfavourable environmental factors during pregnancy and/or lactation can increase the risk of developing later obesity and metabolic disease. Nutrition is an important regulator of growth and obesity is usually associated with tall childhood stature and earlier pubertal development. Prepubertal attainment of a critical body weight and/or fat mass (FM) has been thought to have a noticeable role in the start of sexual maturation whereas underfeeding and malnutrition in humans has been related to delayed pubertal onset. Obesity during infancy and childhood, especially in infants born SGA, is associated with accelerated linear growth and earlier puberty in girls. Girls with obesity are at risk for hyperinsulinemia and hyperandrogenemia. The progression of puberty is affected by nutrition. On the other hand, puberty triggers a growth spurt, which increases nutritional needs including macro and micronutrients. Increased caloric, protein, iron, calcium, zinc and folate needs have to be provided during this critical period of rapid growth. Severe primary or secondary malnutrition also can delay the onset and progression of puberty. The higher incidence of anorexia nervosa and bulimia in adolescents imposes a nutritional risk on pubertal development. Moreover, many environmental endocrine disruptors (EDs) have been identified that can significantly impair the normal course of puberty.

Nutrition related chronic ailments

Deficiency of essential vitamins or an excess of unhealthy fats can lead to several cardiovascular complications. Traditional diets paired with an active lifestyle are recommended by dieticians to rectify such malnourishments. Trans-fats are a major cause for obesity and consequent plaque build-up in the arteries, and those trans-fats enter the body through highly processed foods, re-using of oils for cooking, the use of hydrogenated vegetable oils commercially. Also, practices like skipping breakfast leads to a higher risk of cardiac ailments. Such practices may trigger a “domino effect”, leading to a series of other illnesses like Diabetes mellitus, obesity-induced cancer, etc. Thus, a balanced nutrition is always important to have checks on cardiovascular diseases, regulation of cell division, bone development, reproductive health and metabolic pathways.

Nutrition guidelines

Nutrition guidelines or dietary guidelines are standard sources for nutrition advice, which are published and updated at regular intervals, to provide with the best nutrition guidance for a better living. These guidelines are used by professionals to help individuals and their families to consume a healthy, nutritionally adequate diet. It is also helpful in developing food, nutrition and health policies and programs. They provide guidelines that encourage healthy eating patterns, recognize that individuals will need to make shifts in their food and beverage choices to achieve a healthy pattern, and acknowledge that all segments of our society have a role to play in supporting healthy choices. These Guidelines also embody the idea that a healthy eating pattern is not a rigid prescription, but rather, an adaptable framework in which individuals can enjoy foods that meet their personal, cultural, and traditional preferences and fit within their budget.

Nutrition in cancer care

Cancer treatments like Surgery, chemotherapy, radiation therapy, immunotherapy, stem cell transplant, etc. affect the nutrition of the patient. Such treatments tend to affect the GI tract and may lead to eating disorders as a side effect. Cancer and cancer treatments may affect taste, smell, appetite, and the ability to eat enough food or absorb the nutrients from food. This can cause malnutrition (a condition caused by a lack of key nutrients). Malnutrition can cause the patient to be weak, tired, and unable to fight infections or get through cancer treatment. Malnutrition may be made worse if the cancer grows or spreads. Eating too little protein and calories is a very common problem for cancer patients. Having enough protein and calories is important for healing, fighting infection, and having enough energy. Recently, the World Health Organization classified processed meats such as bacon and salami as a Class 1 carcinogen. This means there is a definitive link with cancer, and it puts processed meats in the same category as other causes of cancer such as tobacco, alcohol and ultraviolet radiation. Red meat has been classified as a Class 2A carcinogen, which means it probably causes cancer, but the evidence isn’t as strong. These classifications do not indicate the risk of getting cancer; they describe the strength of the evidence that these foods are linked to cancer. Cancer Councils recommend limiting or avoiding eating processed meats such as bacon and salami. Having a check on such foods will pave way for prevention of the disease and leading a healthier life.

Nutrition statistics

Nutrition statistics provides key health, nutrition and population statistics gathered from a variety of international sources. Themes include nutrition, reproductive health, health financing, medical resources and usage, immunization, infectious diseases, HIV/AIDS, DALY, population projections and lending. Nutrition statistics also includes health, nutrition and population statistics by wealth quintiles. They provide a base or a reference for framing government policies, health programs, social welfare initiatives, etc. They help set targets for future plans and have an overview of progress or regress in the past towards a specific health, social or cultural implication. They also help correlate between population, nutrition distribution and nutrition patterns to understand malnutrition problems of the globe as a whole, and to understand socio-economic issues involved as well.

Obesity

Obesity is a form of malnutrition where over-nutrition leads to a series of health complications like cardiovascular diseases and psychiatric problems. Recent WHO estimates show that, as of 2014, 13% of the world’s Adult Population is obese. The worldwide prevalence of obesity is more than doubled between 1980 and 2014.  There are so many different factors associated with the cause of obesity, the prime cause being nutrition transition and sedentary lifestyle. Extensive use of electronic gadgets has reduced indulging in physical activities, accompanied with an intake of junk foods rich in calories and trans-fats. Other indirect, slow yet potential causes include Endocrine disruption, Pollution and Substance abuse. Obesity leads to a series of maladies including cardiovascular diseases, hormonal imbalance, gastroenteric diseases, neurological problems, nephrological problems, psychiatric disorders, diabetes mellitus, congenital disorders, cancers, etc. Genetic factors have an impact on the fat metabolism and accumulation patterns of individuals. Though genetic factors are attributed to body mass, the best ways to stay healthy include a nutrition-rich diet and an active lifestyle.

 Health risks of obesity

Obese and over-weight people have a higher risk for gallstones, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and triglycerides, coronary artery disease, stroke, and sleep apnoea, among other conditions. Obesity has also been found to be linked with new types of cancers-   cancers of the colon and rectum, pancreas, thyroid, gallbladder, oesophagus, gastric cardia, liver, kidney, ovary, endometrium of the uterus, breast in postmenopausal women, meningioma and multiple myeloma. In addition, the absence of excess body fatness may reduce the risk of fatal cancer of the prostate, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, and breast cancer in men.

Genetics of obesity

Common DNA sequence variants inadequately explain variability in fat mass among individuals. Abnormal body weights are characteristic of specific imprinted-gene disorders. However, the relevance of imprinted genes to our understanding of obesity among the general population is uncertain. Unidentified imprinted genes and epigenetic mosaicism are some of the challenges for this emerging field of epigenetics. Subtle epigenetic differences in imprinted genes and gene networks are likely to be present among cells, tissues and individuals. In order to advance obesity research it will be necessary to use genome-wide, next-generation sequencing approaches that allow the detection of such epigenetic differences. Phylogenetic studies of obesity have given rise to many intriguing and controversial hypotheses regarding the wide spread of obesity causing genes and patterns in evolution. Advances in behavioural genetics point to the importance of biologic inheritance in behavioural traits as well as in medical conditions. Adolescence appears to be a critical period in developing obesity, and so obesity genetic testing may be targeted to this age group.

Paediatric obesity

Childhood obesity is one of the most serious public health challenges of the 21st century. The problem is global and is steadily affecting many low and middle income countries, particularly in urban settings. The prevalence has increased at an alarming rate. Globally in 2010, the number of overweight children under the age of five is estimated to be over 42 million. Close to 35 million of these are living in developing countries. It is emerging convincingly that the genesis of Type 2 Diabetes and Coronary Heart Disease begins in childhood, with childhood obesity serving as an important factor.[3] There has been a phenomenal rise in proportions of children having obesity in the last 4 decades, especially in the developed world. Traits associated with eating disorders appear to be common in adolescent obese populations, particularly for girls. A number of studies have shown higher prevalence of eating-related pathology in obese children/youth. Childhood obesity can profoundly affect children's physical health, social, and emotional well-being, and self-esteem. It is also associated with poor academic performance and a lower quality of life experienced by the child.

Endocrinal disorders and obesity

Nutritional status during childhood has a significant effect on hormonal balance and can explain as much as 25% of the variation in the onset of sexual maturity. Over-nutrition and obesity seem to trigger pubertal onset. Neonatal shortness and thinness are associated with earlier pubertal maturation. Higher pre-pubertal BMI and fat mass resulted in earlier attainment of pubertal stages. Several studies showed that maternal exposure to unfavourable environmental factors during pregnancy and/or lactation can increase the risk of the development of later obesity and metabolic disease in the child. During puberty obese subjects exhibit a less remarkable growth spurt when compared with lean subjects. The growth advantage gradually attained early declines and the final adult height of obese and normal subjects is equal. Under-nutrition is the most important cause of growth retardation worldwide. Poverty in the poor countries and self-induced food restriction in the rich countries or mal-absorption and chronic systemic diseases are the main causes. Primary or secondary malnutrition leads to serious consequences including impaired growth, osteopenia, anaemia, and different syndromes caused by deficiency of vitamins, minerals, essential fatty acids and amino acids, and trace elements. EDs accumulate in the environment in the long term and are introduced into the human body through water, air, foodstuffs, or through equipment used in the office and home. Human studies have shown that several EDs including DDT/dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene (DDE), PCBs, polybrominated biphenyls (PBB), hexachlorobenzene, endosulfan, dioxins, heavy metals and phthalates affect endocrine functioning in humans.

Gestational and maternal obesity

The increasing rate of maternal obesity provides a major challenge to obstetric practice. Maternal obesity can result in negative outcomes for both women and foetuses. The maternal risks during pregnancy include gestational diabetes and preeclampsia. The foetus is at risk for stillbirth and congenital anomalies. Obesity in pregnancy can also affect health later in life for both mother and child. For women, these risks include heart disease and hypertension. Children have a risk of future obesity and heart disease. Women and their offspring are at increased risk for diabetes. Maternal obesity is associated with an increased risk of diabetes mellitus. Neural tube defects and other developmental anomalies are more common in infants born to obese women; these defects have been linked to poor glycaemic control. Basal metabolic rates are significantly higher in obese women, and maternal fat gain is lower, possibly in response to altered leptin function. The usual increase in insulin resistance seen in late pregnancy is enhanced in obese mothers, causing marked postprandial increases in glucose, lipids, and amino acids and excessive foetal exposure to fuel sources, which in turn increases foetal size, fat stores, and risk for disease postnatally. Impaired glucose tolerance, gestational diabetes, and hyperlipidaemia are more common among obese mothers.

 Obesity and diabetes

Obesity and diabetes are highly interdependent such that the term “DIABESITY” has been coined. Type 2 diabetes is a chronic illness whose complications include increased cardiovascular disease, end-stage renal disease, eye damage and limb amputations. Its increase among young people points to many decades of treatment for a larger population than previously known. Both obesity and diabetes are largely preventable. Previous studies have demonstrated that changes in lifestyle are effective in preventing diabetes and obesity in selected groups of adults who are at high risk. Therefore, increasing physical activity, improving diet, and sustaining these lifestyle changes can reduce the risk of both diabetes and increased weight.

Obesity and cancer

Obesity is a risk factor for more cancers than previously believed, according to the results of a new studies conducted. The report shows that the absence of excess body fatness reduces the risk of cancers of the colon and rectum, pancreas, thyroid, gallbladder, oesophagus, gastric cardia, liver, kidney, ovary, endometrium of the uterus, breast in postmenopausal women, meningioma and multiple myeloma. In addition, the absence of excess body fatness may reduce the risk of fatal cancer of the prostate, diffuse large B-cell lymphoma, and breast cancer in men. Evidence from animal studies showed that overweightness is associated with an increase in the incidence of several types of cancer in animals while caloric or dietary restriction is associated with decreases in the risk of mammary gland, liver, colon, skin, pancreas and pituitary gland cancers. Estimates show that in 2013, 4.5 million deaths worldwide were associated with obesity or overweight bodies. The recognition of new cancer sites related to obesity is expected to add to the number of deaths related to obesity.

Current research in BMI

Although body mass index (BMI) has been adopted by WHO as an international measure of obesity, it lacks a theoretical basis, and empirical evidence suggests it is not valid for all populations. There are also several methods to measure the percentage of body fat. In research, techniques include underwater weighing (densitometry), multi-frequency bioelectrical impedance analysis (BIA), and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). In the clinical environment, techniques such as BMI, waist circumference, and skin-fold thickness have been used extensively. Although, these methods are less accurate than research methods, they are satisfactory to identify risk. In addition, BMI fails to distinguish between fat and fat-free mass (muscle and bone) and may exaggerate obesity in large muscular children. Furthermore, maturation pattern differs between genders and different ethnic groups. Hence, more research is needed on different methods to predict the risk of obesity and other potential illnesses due to obesity.

Obesity management

Obesity can be managed by a change in lifestyle, with increased physical activity and a nutritious diet. In severe cases and complications, additional treatment may be required to reduce weight and restore normal functioning of the body. It includes anti-obesity medications, bariatric surgeries or even alternative medicine. Patients who undergo bariatric surgeries are proven to suffer alterations in gut hormones that promote satiety, suppress hunger, and reverse one of the primary mechanisms that cause obesity-related type 2 diabetes. In addition, the surgery causes on average 60 to 80% long-term excess weight loss. In spite of its advantages, bariatric surgeries have some cons, including complicated procedures and long-term deficiencies of vital nutrients. Alternative treatments like yoga and naturopathy can help the betterment of the affected individuals by using natural methods and resources to boost fat metabolism and restore the normal functioning of the vital organs of the body.

Psychological aspects of Obesity

Obesity is as much a psychological as a physical problem. Psychological issues can not only foreshadow the development of obesity, but they can also follow on-going struggles to control weight. Because the psychological aspects of obesity are so important, psychological assessments and interventions have become an integral part of a multidisciplinary approach to treating obesity, which includes the use of bariatric surgery. Society views obesity very negatively and tends to believe that people who are obese are “weak-willed” and “unmotivated”. Obese individuals are often aware of these negative views, and internalize them, putting themselves at risk for disorders of mood, anxiety, and substance abuse. They perceive interpersonal and work-related discrimination, often suffer from low self-esteem as a result, and feel uncomfortable with their bodies (i.e. body image dissatisfaction). Behavioural and/or cognitive therapy can be used as part of a program of lifestyle modification with diet and exercise for individuals who do not meet criteria for or do not want bariatric surgery. More recently cognitive therapy and cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT) have become an important aspect of the treatment of obesity. Cognitions influence both feelings and behaviours, and they cannot be ignored when treating obesity. CBT is utilized in the treatment of obesity as a way to help individuals change their negative eating behaviours and incorporate healthy lifestyle changes.  The achievement of substantial weight loss from bariatric surgical or non-surgical approaches is significantly related to one’s ability to make permanent changes in one’s lifestyle that involves not only adherence to more appropriate nutritional intake and exercise, but also improved management of stress and emotional states with decreased reliance on eating as a coping mechanism.

Why Dubai, UAE

Obesity is a well-known health burden and about 70 per cent of men and 67 per cent of women aged 15 years and older in the country are considered overweight. This, in turn, has led to the mounting tide of lifestyle disorders including type-2 diabetes, hypertension and cardiovascular disease placing upward pressure on the country’s health-care system.  The UAE ranks as the fifth fattest nation in the world, according to a recent study published by a BMC Public Health journal. It ranks behind the US, Kuwait, Qatar.Dr Charles Stanford, CEO of Abu Dhabi’s Burjeel Hospital, says diabetes and a lack of exercise are the biggest health concerns in the nation. According to the WHO, the typical UAE male will live to the age of 76. A third of the male population will suffer from some sort of health ailment, according to the UAE Men’s Health Alliance. WHO reports the most common health complaint is cardiovascular disease for both Emiratis and expatriates, according to latest statistics from the Health Authority Abu Dhabi (HAAD). The typical UAE woman will live two years longer than her male counterpart with an average life expectancy of 78, according to the WHO. Dr Stanford says non-communicable diseases will affect female citizens in much the same way as in European and North American countries, but with their high levels of obesity there is a greater probability UAE women will develop diabetes and associated illnesses including heart disease, hypertension, stroke and kidney failure. Emirati women are more likely to die from heart disease. According to WHO’s World Health Statistics 2015 report, nearly half of UAE female residents over 18 are obese. After tackling infectious diseases over the past half century, the country is now grappling with the escalating crisis of chronic conditions and their risk factors. With the well-being of its citizens identified as a top priority by the UAE government, the health-care sector in the country is seeing an astonishing boom in both the quality and quantity of services it provides. So, this conference arranged here, in Dubai, UAE has the potential to give a bigger outreach to people, healthcare professionals, academicians and scientists to understand the emerging patterns in malnutrition and overcome them.  

MAJOR HEALTH PROBLEMS IN THE UAE

1.     Obesity

The obesity rate in the UAE is about double the world average. More than 2.1 billion people — close to 30 per cent of the global population — are overweight or obese, the World Health Organisation says. The symptoms of obesity — caused by poor diet and an inactive lifestyle — are weight gain and a body mass index above 30. Without proper treatment, obesity can lead to serious complications including heart disease and stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes and cancer.

2.     Diabetes

Recent figures from the International Diabetes Federation confirm 37 million diabetics in the Middle East and North Africa, including 803,900 in the UAE. It predicts the region’s figure will rise by more than 80 per cent to 68 million by 2035 unless action is taken. Type 2 diabetes — often linked to factors such as obesity and a sedentary lifestyle — accounts for about 90 per cent of cases worldwide. Left untreated, diabetes brings a heightened risk of blindness, kidney deterioration, diabetic foot and cardiovascular disease — the highest cause of death among diabetic patients.

 3. Cardiovascular diseases

 A recent survey by the Emirates Cardiac Society that quizzed more than 4,000 people found that almost nine out of ten people in the UAE are at risk of cardiovascular disease and one out of three of them are unaware of the fact. Diabetes, hypertension, smoking, high cholesterol, obesity and a family history of cardiovascular disease are all risk factors. Heart disease and strokes are a leading killer across the world — claiming 17.3 million lives annually — and the UAE is no exception.

 4. Cancer

Cancer is one of the biggest killers in the UAE with the four most common being breast, colorectal, lung and cervical cancer. According to Health Authority Abu Dhabi (HAAD) statistics for 2014 — the most recent figures available — women accounted for 45 per cent of all cancer-related deaths, with breast cancer being the third most common cancer-related deaths for both genders, behind lung and blood cancers.

Hence, it is important we take action to reduce the prevalence of obesity with concrete research findings, healthcare policies, awareness creation and reduce the risk of related chronic ailments like cardiovascular diseases, cancers, diabetes and psychological stresses.
