OBJECTIVE To select individuals whose morbid obesity can be attributed mainly to their individual genetic profile. After excluding patients with potential monogenic syndromes or diseases associated with obesity, we evaluated the association of the single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) rs1861868 and rs9939609 of the fat-mass and obesity-associated FTO gene with an inherited predisposition to morbid obesity. PATIENTS AND METHODS We evaluated 270 patients with morbid obesity and onset before… CONTINUE READING
