In this paper, the authors propose an Intuitionistic Fuzzy decision support system for determining the causes of a more or less common disorder - obesity. Obesity can be simply lifestyle related i.e. excessive food energy intake and a lack of physical activity related or it may be caused due to hormonal, pathological or genetic factors. Whenever, a patient is examined, their goal is to find out the cause of obesity so that appropriate treatment can be prescribed to the patient. All this involves a particular amount of uncertainty and imprecision.
