At the University of Primorska College of Health Care Izola the researchers are joined in an interdisciplinary team which will perform a research entitled “A multidisciplinary approach in the treatment of obesity”. Obesity and overweight pose a major risk for diet-related chronic diseases. So, understanding the role of obesity is of major importance in the prevention and treatment of these related diseases. It is known that genetic factors related to food intake, basal metabolic rate and adipocyte differentiation contribute, but also life style, psychological factors, and tradition, may provide to the etiology of obesity, that is why obesity will be studied from different aspects. The aim of the research is in addition to nutritional treatment also attempt to understand the regulation of the secretion of adipokines by different food components. Research is versatile and interdisciplinary, and is a challenge for researchers.
