Abstract Objective Along with other countries having high and low-to-middle income, Mexico has experienced a substantial change in obesity rates. This rapid growth in obesity prevalence has led to high rates of obesity-related diseases and associated health-care costs. Design Micro-simulation is used to project future BMI trends. Additionally thirteen BMI-related diseases and health-care costs are estimated. The results are simulated for three hypothetical scenarios: no BMI reduction and BMI… 
Health and Economic Burden of Obesity in Brazil

Obesity in Mexico: prevalence, comorbidities, associations with patient outcomes, and treatment experiences
TLDR

Attributable Burden and Expenditure of Cardiovascular Diseases and Associated Risk Factors in Mexico and other Selected Mega-Countries
TLDR
Heterogeneity in economic data and limited information on dyslipidemias were found and hypertriglyceridemia and hypercholesterolemia were higher in Mexico compared with other countries, suggesting resources should be assured to optimize CVD risk monitoring.
