Childhood obesity can also lead to life-threatening conditions including Type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance, high blood pressure, heart disease, sleep problems, cancer, and other disorders. Overweight prevalence is higher in boys (32.7 percent) than girls (27.8 percent). In adolescents, overweight prevalence is about the same for females (30.2 percent) and males (30.5 percent). Global rise in obesity is attributable to a number of factors. Being a lifestyle disease, and how they may be responsible for obesity. The prevention and treatment of excess weight is critical for the health of both individuals and our society.
