There are many reasons for obesity. While its cause is certainly tied to an imbalance of calories taken in versus calories burned through physical activity, it also can be affected by:
-Family history and genes.
-Medications. Some antidepressants, anti-seizure medications, diabetes medications, steroids and beta blockers may cause weight gain.
-Social networks and economics. Research suggests people may be at greater risk for being overweight or obese if their friends are; other data shows people at lower economic levels have a greater chance of being obese.
-Lifestyle habits, eating behaviors and stress.
-Too little sleep. This can affect hormones that increase appetite.
-Medical problems, such as hypothyroidism, Prader-Willi and polycystic ovary syndrome.
