Depression and obesity have been recognized as major public health issues in youths.Survey records have been reported saying that child obesity gives rise to depression among children The symptoms include loss of interest in children in their activities, less sleep, unsocial behavior, less confidence, etc. These symptoms have to be taken into care by the parents by carrying their children to a good physician who can start therapies against obesity as well as depression.
Depression and obesity are two very challenging health issues, and scientists continue to explore the complicated physical and psychological links between them. It is hardly surprising the two occur together. People affected by obesity are often self-conscious about their appearance or their physical abilities. Although they have traditionally been compartmentalized as separate physical and emotional health conditions, evidence suggests interactions and common pathways between them, implying that successful treatment should ideally target shared underlying mechanisms.
