Is obesity a dominant, recessive, or sex-linked gene?



Is obesity a dominant, recessive, or sex-linked gene?

What???? i got this from sex??????
dominant
It is a grocery related issue. As in, obesity is linked to stuffing too many groceries down your pie-hole.
Best guess recessive.
It is genetically encoded in Type I diabetes (AKA juvenile diabetes).
Type II diabetes is caused by age- the pancreas gets tired- or by improper diet and sedentary lifestyles.
It is not a gene. There are genes that can predispose people to obesity, but it is not unavoidable. Just get off your *** and exercise, and dont' eat more calories than you burn. It is really that simple.
Type II diabetes is not caused by a "tired" pancreas. It is thought to be a decrease in sensitivity to insulin possible due to a downregulation of the receptors in muscles and the liver.
The reason type I diabetics are often obese (although not necessarily so) is that their body is usually in a hyperglycemic state which inhibits fat breakdown. Insulin stimulates the muscles and liver to take up the excess glucose in the blood and convert it to fat and glycogen.
people become obese because they are addicted to food, and have over compulsive eating disorder, and they could have gotten like that because of life experiences. food makes them feel good because nothing else does, or they are trying to stuff their feelings down. so in that case dominant but if it is recessive then, that means they were raised eating bad food and never got out of the habbit. i don't think if really has anything to do with sex.
