Genetic Obesity


Like many other medical conditions, obesity is the result of an interaction between environmental and genetic factors. Although genetic deficiencies are currently considered rare, variations in these genes can predispose to common obesity. Rarely, obesity occurs in families with a clear hereditary pattern caused by changes in a single gene. The gene most often involved is MC4R, which encodes the melanocortin 4 receptor.
