Obesity is an annoying metabolic phenotype that is attributed to a number of different patho-physiological risk factors. For obese people, life-style management, drugs and surgery are the major selections for recovering their healthy forms. Since a great diversity of risk factors can trigger human features of obesity, personalized medicine (biomarkers and genetic alteration) or others are one of future obesity treatments. This article briefly reviews these pathologic or therapeutic insights.
