Guidelines for Obesity Management


Guidelines for Obesity Management

Donna H Ryan. Endocrinol Metab Clin North Am.


This article addresses current best practices in obesity management, primarily through the discussion of 5 guidelines documents: those sponsored by the US National Institutes of Health and the AHA/ACC/TOS, ENDO, ASBP, AACE, and the United Kingdom's NICE. Common to all of these reports is the emphasis on addressing weight management as a pathway to prevention and optimal management of obesity-associated comorbidities (ie, type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular diseases). No one of these documents fits all needs; all have a place. Further, no one of these documents is final. As knowledge advances, all will require updating.

Keywords: Best practices in obesity management; Medical management of obesity; Obesity clinical practice guidance; Obesity guidelines; Obesity medication guidelines.
