Obesity Conference 2020 invites speakers to submit abstract on the following sessions but not limited to:

The Science of Obesity & Diabetes | Submit

In 2004 few studies have announced that patients with obese prostate cancer are expected to have aggressive tumors and experience reoccurrence of cancer after surgery when compared with patients with BMI of under 30. Current research about obesity focuses on how diet, physical activity, genetics or weight plays an important role. Scientists have examined many potential biological causes, including myriad hormones, such as estrogen, leptin, ghrelin and insulin. Diabetes is a condition having excessive glucose in our blood can cause health problems. Although diabetes has no cure, you can manage your diabetes and stay healthy by taking preventive measures. Topics included under this session are

The obesity is one of the most challenging chronic disease, threats facing around the globe today. There are many common treatments for overweight and obesity which includes loss of weight through physically activity, healthy eating and making other changes to your usual habits. Basing waist circumference, BMI and adverse health consequences obesity treatments options are determined as the patients are experiencing or is at a high risk for facing in the future. This session highlights talks on the current approach to obesity treatment.
