Obesity and Psychiatric Disorders

As much as obesity is a physical problem it is also a psychological problem. Psychological issues are a warning for the development of obesity and it will also lead to problems during the on-going weight control struggle. Psychological assessment has become mandatory in the multi-disciplinary approach which also includes bariatric surgery. Recently cognitive therapy and cognitive behavioral therapy have become an important approach for the treatment of obesity. The achievement of considerable weight loss by surgical or non-surgical means is crucially related to a person’s ability to make changes in one’s habits and lifestyle which not only involves a proper diet and exercise regimen exercise, but also management of emotional and psychological stress.
