Abstract

The burden of obesity on patients' everyday life is high; obese subjects perceive a poor Health-Related Quality of Life (HRQL) in both physical and mental dimensions. We aimed to identify the areas of everyday life limited by health status and factors mainly responsible for perceived problems. The Nottingham Health Profile questionnaire (NHP) was used in 274 obese subjects seeking treatment at a university-based obesity center. Values were compared with normative Italian data, corrected for age and sex. Anthropometric and clinical data were also recorded, and correlated with health status. All domains of NHP were significantly impaired in obesity, the effect size ranging from 0.14 (Emotional Reactions; p=0.02) to 0.99 (Physical Mobility; p
