Abstract

The prevalence of obesity is increasing world wide, resulting in morbidity, mortality, and reduced quality of life. The aim of this study was to assess comorbidities and complaints of subjects with morbid obesity in comparison to milder forms of overweight. Therefore, 299 patients visiting our obesity consultation were examined and surveyed prospectively. 41% of the subjects were morbidly obese showing a significantly higher prevalence of arterial hypertension, edema, dyspnea, eczema and depression. Additionally, sleepiness, reduced work capacity, physical inactivity, disadvantages in social life and disturbed eating habits were observed more frequent. Evaluation of subjects with morbid obesity should include a large spectrum of complications, in order to be able to offer a comprehensive support and treatment.
