Although it is regarded as a disease, but it is only an exaggerated form of the normal physiological process. In Ayurveda Sthaulya is referred to as ?Medoroga? which is primarily caused by malfunctioning of Meda-Dhatwagni and is included in ?Ashtau-Nindit-Purusha? by Acharya Charaka meaning who are been criticized by the society due to their inappropriate body parameters. It is also counted as one amongst the ?Kapha-NanatmajaVikaras? and is Santarpanajanya Vyadhi.
