Adipositas - Obesity

The adipositas panel is designed to reveal if there is a genetic variation as the cause of the condition. The condition is characterized by an increase of body weight beyond the limitation of skeletal and physical requirement, as the result of excessive accumulation of body fat. Several disorders include obesity as a predominant feature, where the underlying cause is mutation of a critical gene, such as LEP leptin deficiency.

The adipositas panel covers 11 genes related to obesity.
