Weight Management

In chapter five of your textbook there are two prompts (Pg. 137 & 152) that ask you to relate the chapter material to an obese family. The prompts give you two situations and asks you both factual and opinion based questions. You are to refer to the chapter pages for the full situation.

Be sure to review the below material before giving your opinion on the genetics based questions:

You are to answer the following questions out of those boxes:

Are there strategies that the Rhys family could take to reduce the impact of physiological factors on eating behavior?
How is this type of genetic testing done? Is it painful or invasive?
What are some of the issues that arise when parents decide for a child that he or she should undergo genetic testing?
Do the benefits of learning about one’s MC4R gene status outweigh the risks of having such information?
Should Joey be informed about the results of his genetic testing? Should others in the Rhys family be informed?
How do you think the outcome of genetic testing might affect Joey’s psychological status, self-esteem, and future health risks?
Finally, what is your opinion on heredity and obesity? Who is in control, your genes or yourself?

Answers to the questions should be at least 3-4 sentences in length. You are encouraged to give your honest opinion when prompted to do so. Do not rewrite the questions in your response. The question number next to the answer will suffice. Finally, direct quoting is not allowed, even if you cite the source. This assignment uses a plagiarism checker so everything needs to be in your own words.
