Background. The PPARG2 Pro12Ala (rs1801282) and IL6-174G> C (rs1800795) have important function in body weight regulation and a potential role in obesity risk. We aimed to investigate the association between PPARG2 Pro12Ala and IL6-174G> C variants and the genotypes interaction with body composition, metabolic markers, food consumption, and physical activity in severely obese patients. Methods. 150 severely obese patients (body mass index (BMI)≥ 35 kg/m 2) from Central Brazil were recruited. Body composition …
