Lesson 3.6 – How does obesity lead to disease?

In the last few lessons we have explored how the brain regulates overeating. We have also seen that hunger signals may not adapt after weight loss, contributing to the weight regain that often occurs when people have lost weight by dieting. Here we further explore the consequences of obesity by focusing on diabetes and atherosclerosis. After reviewing these diseases in the activity we will return to the question: how does obesity lead to disease? It’s a question that has no clear answer and is a current area of research.
