Organized by the City of Zagreb, the Association for the Prevention of Overweight and the Foundation of the "Croatian House of Hearts" this Saturday will mark the "Day of Obsessedness of Croatia", which will also be held in 3. Conference "Croatian Day of Thickness" with an emphasis on detecting causes, defining consequences and adequate treatment, and emphasizing the importance of prevention at the earliest age.

In Croatia the thickness is 20, 37% of the adult population, 20, 14% of males and 20, 60% of women, from age 45 to 54 years 27, 85% males and 32, 82% women. The direct effect of the thickness on the heart is manifested in morphological and functional changes in the heart muscle. Indirect action is known as x-syndrome or insulin resistance. According to the national consensus on obesity, weight loss of 10% in 6 months is set as the goal of treatment.

The problem that is increasingly present in today's age is obesity in children's growing age. A great last year's study has shown evidence of the link between obesity in early childhood and later obesity - almost 90% of obese children aged three years remain overweight or are still obese in adolescence. The epidemic of childhood obesity is largely the result of external factors. Apart from tangible factors such as consuming sweetened drinks, exposure to TV screen and electronic games, sleep loss, taking some medications, etc., are increasingly talking about less tangible and equally important factors that increase the risk of developing obesity by means of metabolic programming.
