Background
The alarming increase in overweight and obesity is a global public health challenge. Accurate estimates of related disease conditions are crucial for informing national health policies. Different organizations (WHO, World Bank) have computed varying estimates in the past. We employed the recent Global Burden of Disease (GBD) study methodology for international comparability. We provide detailed estimates on five major non-communicable diseases (NCDs) attributable to overweight and obesity between the two time periods (1990 and 2010) in Ireland.
