These are among the leading causes of preventable, premature death. The estimated annual medical cost of obesity in the US was nearly $173 billion in 2019 dollars. Medical costs for adults who had obesity were $1,861 higher than medical costs for people with healthy weight. We will discuss the pathophysiology and treatments.
