The Genetic Obesity ID
(GO-ID) Genotyping Study

looks at samples of people’s genes to determine if they may have rare genetic disorders of obesity—specifically, POMC (pro‑opiomelanocortin) deficiency or LEPR (leptin receptor) deficiency.

There are currently no treatments for POMC or LEPR deficiencies. While these are rare genetic disorders, researchers suspect that many people have not yet been diagnosed.
