We spoke to Dr Arnab Mohanty, General, Minimal Access and Bariatric Surgery (HOD) at Apollo Spectra Hospital, Gurugram, to know how obesity affects life (obese and life happiness).

There is a decrease in the quality of life

Dr. Arnab Mohanty explains, ‘There has been a 4-5% increase in obesity cases in the hospital in the last 5 years. But people do not consider it as a disease. Whenever the topic of obesity comes up, people shy away from discussing it. People are afraid that others might make fun of them.
