Build Your Own Case Study | Obesity: Treating the Whole Patient

Course Description

Obesity is a chronic, progressive, relapsing disease that impacts health and quality of life. In individuals with obesity, there are many contributors to its development and persistence, including lifestyle, social, and economic factors. If left untreated, obesity can be a primary driver of serious health consequences. By treating obesity first, complications arising from obesity may improve or resolve. Given the severity of the disease, there is a need for clinicians in primary and specialty care settings to diagnose and treat obesity so that patients can receive the most appropriate treatment and care. Evidence-based treatment options, including anti-obesity medications, are emerging for adults and children.
