Economic Burden of Obesity-Related Comorbidities in Turkey
Economic Burden of Obesity-Related Comorbidities in Turkey

Arzu YİĞİT [1] , Vahit Yiğit [2]


Obesity and obesity-related diseases are the leading cause of death worldwide, and mortality and morbidities they cause are important public health problems. The purpose of this study, obesity-related comorbidities is to analyze the economic burden for 2004 and 2015 in Turkey. The most important of the methods used to study the burden of disease is the Disability-Adjusted Life Years (DALYs) approach. DALY and gross domestic product (GDP) per capita were used to estimate the economic burden of obesity. Obesity and related DALYs values were taken from the "Turkey Burden of Disease Study" published by the Ministry of Health. The economic burden of obesity-causing diseases has been estimated according to DALY methodology. Economic burden of obesityrelated comorbidities to Turkey in 2004 was estimated to be 4.692.333.776-$. This amounts to 1.20% of gross domestic product. In 2015, the economic burden of obesity-related  comorbidities is 17.646.245.880- $ and 2.45% of gross domestic product. Given the increase in obese population, the economic burden of obesity-related diseases is expected to increase further in the coming years. Obesity-related comorbidities represent a substantial financial burden to the Turkey budget. Obesity is an important public health problem that can be treated. In order to use scarce resources devoted to health services more efficiently and effectively, it is indispensable to considerably reduce the economic burden of obesity in Turkey.  

Obezite ve obeziteye bağlı hastalıklar tüm dünyada önde gelen ölüm nedenidir ve neden oldukları mortalite ve morbiditeler önemli bir halk sağlığı sorununu oluşturmaktadır. Bu araştırmanın amacı,Türkiye'de 2004 ve 2015 yılları için obeziteye bağlı komorbiditelerin ekonomik yükünü analiz etmektir.Hastalık yükü çalışmalarında kullanılan yöntemlerden en önemlisi Engelliğe Bağlı Yaşam Yılları (Disability adjusted life years-DALY) yaklaşımıdır. Obezitenin ekonomik yükünü hesaplamak için, DALY ve gayrisafi yurtiçi hasıladan (GSYİH) kişi başına düşen pay verileri kullanılmıştır. Obezite ve buna bağlı komorbiditelerin DALY değerleri, Sağlık Bakanlığı tarafından yayınlanan "Türkiye Hastalık Yükü  Çalışması"ndan alınmıştır. Obeziteye neden olan hastalıkların ekonomik yükü DALY metodolojisine göre tahmin edilmiştir. Türkiye’de obezite ilişkili komorbiditelerin ekonomik yükü 2004 yılında 4.692.333.776-$ olarak tahmin edilmiştir. Bu tutar gayri safi yurtiçi hasılasının %1,20’isini oluşturmaktadır. 2015 yılında ise obezite ilişkili komorbiditelerin ekonomik yükü ise 17.646.245.880-$ ve gayri safi yurtiçi hasılasının %2,45’ini
oluşturmaktadır. Obez nüfusun artışı dikkate alındığında obeziteye bağlı hastalıkların ekonomik yükününün ilerleyen yıllarda daha da artacağı düşünülmektedir. Obezite ile ilişkili komorbiditeler,
Türkiye bütçesine önemli bir mali yük oluşturmaktadır. Obezite tedavi edilebilen önemli bir halk sağlığı problemdir. Sağlık hizmetlerine ayrılan kıt kaynakları daha verimli ve etkin kullanabilmek
için, Türkiye’de obezitenin ekonomik yükünü dikkate değer ölçüde düşürmek gerekmektedir.
