Introduction: Obesity is one of the most important community health threatening problem, because of its high prevalence and associated comorbidities. Each of these comorbidities have various risks for health. There are very few studies investigating the awareness of people about obesity associated comorbidities

Methods: Five-hundred adult patients, admitted to Endocrinology & Internal Medicine outpatient clinics, whose body mass index was>18.5 kg/m2 and completed a questionnaire concerning obesity associated comorbidities were included in this study. Each correct answer was scored as 1 point. Each participant’s total score and mean total score (MTS) was calculated. The scores among normal weight, overweight and obese groups were compared. Besides the questionnaire, age, gender, education level was asked and waist and hip circumference, height and weight were measured by the researchers.

Results: Mean education score was the lowest in the obese group, altough MTS was the highest. Awareness of obesity associated stroke, breast cancer and osteoarthritis were significantly higher in the obese group when compared to the other groups, but there was no difference between men and women. Awareness of obesity associated menstrual irregularity and infertility was higher in women, hypertension and prostate cancer was higher in men.

Conclusions: Although the education level was lowest in the obese group, the awareness of obesity-associated comorbidities was highest.

Giriş: Obezite, yüksek prevalansı ve eşlik eden komorbiditeleri nedeniyle toplum sağlığını tehdit eden en önemli sorunlardan biridir. Bu komorbiditelerin her birinin sağlık için çeşitli riskleri vardır. Obezite ile ilişkili komorbiditeler hakkında insanların farkındalığını araştıran çok az çalışma vardır.

Yöntem: Bu çalışmaya, Endokrinoloji ve Dahiliye polikliniklerine başvuran, vücut kitle indeksi >18,5kg/m2 olan ve obezite ile ilişkili komorbiditelere ilişkin bir anket doldurmayı kabul eden beş yüz yetişkin hasta dahil edildi. Her doğru cevap 1 puan olarak puanlandı. Her bir katılımcının toplam puanı ve ortalama toplam puanı hesaplandı. Skorlar normal kilolu, kilolu ve obez gruplarda karşılaştırıldı. Anketin yanı sıra yaş, cinsiyet, eğitim düzeyi ve bel çevresi, kalça çevresi, boy ve kiloları ölçüldü.

Bulgular: Toplam puanı en yüksek olmasına rağmen obez grupta ortalama eğitim skoru en düşüktü. Obezite ile ilişkili inme, meme kanseri ve osteoartritis farkındalığı obez grupta diğer gruplara göre anlamlı olarak yüksek bulundu, ancak kadın ve erkek arasında fark yoktu. Obeziteye bağlı menstrüel düzensizlik ve infertilite farkındalığı kadınlarda daha yüksek iken obezite ilişkili hipertansiyon ve prostat kanseri farkındalığı erkeklerde daha yüksekti.

Sonuç: Eğitim düzeyi obez grupta en düşük olmasına rağmen obezite ile ilişkili komorbiditelerin farkındalığı en yüksek düzeydedir.
