ABSTRACT
Currently, more than 75% of the human diseases burden is attributable to non-communicable diseases (NCDs) as the leading causes of death and disability. The distribution of NCDs and other related risk factors to obesity among the general adult’s population is similar, and it has been stated that; unless reforms are introduced to the current health care system, NCDs will constitute a major drain on human and financial resources, threatening the advances in human health and longevity. Obesity is the main etiological factor for the increased prevalence of NCDs, and this is considered as an alarming phenomenon during adolescence stage of life. There is a need in the current health care system to develop appropriate strategies for the early diagnosis and management of the metabolic risk factors (B-Vitamins Deficiency, Hyperhomocysteinemia, and Oxidative Stress) leading to obesity and its associated NCDs among adolescents.
