The convention was held from 28 to 30 April in Opatija and was organised by the Croatian Medical Chamber’s association for obesity.

About 300 experts discussed the problem of obesity, which is one of the biggest public healthcare problems, and they adopted new guidelines to deal with this problem.

The association’s president and vice president, Davor Štimac and Sanja Klobučar Majanović, respectively, announced the convention.

Štimac said that over the past few years a somewhat better record was achieved by the female population in losing weight.

Croatian men continue to be the fattest in Europe. It is concerning to see that children are becoming fatter and fatter. We have projects in Croatia that monitor obesity among children in schools, and over the past 15 years that problem has been increasingly frequent among children, underscored Štimac.

He said that previously one in five school children had a problem with weight and today that is every third child.

We are battling against the COVID pandemic and obesity, which is a fatal combination, Klobučar Majanović said, adding and that a balanced diet and exercise are the path to a normal weight and that it is necessary to avoid weight-loss products on the black market.
