Here are the top 10 obesity-related conditions that accounted for those claims:

  1. Cystitis/Urinary tract disease
  2. Chronic renal disease
  3. Diabetes
  4. Asthma
  5. Hepatitis/Hepatopathy
  6. Osteoarthritis
  7. Hypertension
  8. Congestive heart failure
  9. Gall bladder disorder
  10. Spondylosis
