Gut-brain axis in appetite regulation and energy homeostasis

Despite growing recognition of the problem, the obesity epidemic continues in the U.S., and obesity rates are increasing around the world. The latest estimates are that approximately 34% of adults and 15–20% of children and adolescents in the U.S. are obese. Obesity affects every segment of the U.S. population. On top of the obesity epidemic, you have to add insulin resistance related diseases like type 2 diabetes. Diabetes is a major public health problem that is approaching epidemic proportions globally. Worldwide, the prevalence of chronic, noncommunicable diseases is increasing at an alarming rate. About 18 million people die every year from cardiovascular disease, for which diabetes and hypertension are major predisposing factors. Today, more than 1.7 billion adults worldwide are overweight, and 312 million of them are obese. In addition, at least 155 million children worldwide are overweight or obese. Obesity is only one part of the problem, the tip of the iceberg when it comes to properly see the larger issues that are involved in this pathogenesis. A diabetes epidemic is underway.

There are many issues that need to be adressed in order to fully understand what is driving this epidemic. Appetite regulation, hpa axis dysregulation and hormonal imbalances are only part of the issue. In this 3 hours course, we will explain how this epidemic came to be and what you can do help your client face the different problematic involved  that may arise from their lifestyle and nutrition.  We will bring you answers on how to help your patient efficiently and help them understand the most important point they have to control to become a healthier version of themselves.
