After the success of the previous edition organized in Riga in October 2013, we are pleased to announce the organization of the8th World Congress on Diabetes & Obesity 2015 which will be held in Riga, Latvia onJuly 2-3, 2015.
Obesity has reached epidemic proportions globally, with more than 1 billion adults overweight - at least 300 million of them clinically obese - and is a major contributor to the global burden of chronic disease and disability. The obesity epidemic is not restricted to industrialized societies; this increase is often faster in developing countries than in the developed world.
Often coexisting in developing countries with under-nutrition, obesity is a complex condition, with serious social and psychological dimensions, affecting virtually all ages and socioeconomic groups.
Obesity and overweight pose also a major risk for serious diet-related chronic diseases, including type-2 diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, hypertension and stroke, and certain forms of cancer. The health consequences range from increased risk of premature death, to serious chronic conditions that reduce the overall quality of life. Of special concern is the increasing incidence of child obesity.
