Obesity is a common, serious, and costly disease.
The US obesity prevalence was 41.9% in 2017 – March 2020. (NHANES, 2021). From 1999 –2000 through 2017 –March 2020, US obesity prevalence increased from 30.5% to 41.9%. During the same time, the prevalence of severe obesity increased from 4.7% to 9.2%. (NHANES, 2021).
Obesity-related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer. These are among the leading causes of preventable, premature death. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)Trusted Source, about 43% of adults with depression from 2005-2010 had obesity. Adults diagnosed with depression are more likely to be obese than those without the disorder.
The estimated annual medical cost of obesity in the United States 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.
