Optimising obesity treatment through sorting into relevant groups
Obesity is often perceived as a lack of self control rather than a disease. The EU-funded SOPHIA project aims to challenge this misconception by providing evidence for disease heterogeneity and create a shared value where all the stakeholders can do well by doing good. Researchers will identify predictors of risks of obesity complications as well as the subpopulations who are at risk of specific complications (e.g. type 2 diabetes, T2D, cardiovascular disease, CVD, cancers and osteoarthritis). The project will also identify predictors of response to different obesity treatments. The outcomes of this research will allow patients to receive higher quality information which in turn will empower them to make decisions together with their healthcare professionals in regards to their treatment.
