In this article, the writer points out that there is a virtual epidemic of obesity afflicting the American public today, and signs suggest that the trend is just getting worse. The writer maintains that although the causes of obesity remain largely better described in the scholarly literature than they are understood, the growing body of research on obesity has indicated there is a genetic component in some cases that makes accurate diagnosis and treatment important. This paper provides a review of the peer-reviewed and organizational literature to determine what genetic obesity is and how it is diagnosed. A discussion of various treatment options is followed by a summary of the research and salient findings in the conclusion.
