  • Overcoming the Barriers of Weight Management by using OMA Resources - October 20, 6pm EST

    Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 10/20/2021 at 6:00 PM (EDT)

    Mahtab Ahmed, MD, FOMA, Dipl. ABOM

    Description: 

    Patients and Primary Care Clinicians face numerous difficulties in providing effective, affordable weight loss and maintenance  programs.  The clinician needs to be knowledgeable, experienced, compassionate, and motivated, while meeting each patient's unique expectations with an affordable program in an appropriate  setting! The objective of this webinar is to illustrate such a weight loss program using OMA resources. I will describe how information from Obesity Algorithms, OMA office tools and lectures from OMA conferences  can be used to activate our patients. This will be a distillation of the information of the 4 pillars of weight management in a user friendly format for the patient. To summarize and elaborate, I will share data of a weight loss program which I implemented in an employer sponsored clinic.

    Description: 

    Obesity prevalence is at worldwide epidemic levels, and behind cigarette smoking, obesity is the second leading cause of preventable deaths. Interventions directed toward improving nutrition, increasing physical activity, and changing eating behaviors can be effective treatments for obesity, but long -term benefits are often countered by neuro-hormonally activated homeostatic mechanisms that eventually lead to weight regain. Anti-obesity pharmacologic agents are often effective in combating the internal drives that increase appetite and contribute to obesity as well as those associated with weight regain. Despite the prevalence and deadly consequences of obesity, there are currently only four FDA approved anti-obesity medications for long -term use and four older sympathomimetic agents approved only three month’s treatment duration. Pharmacologic options for obesity treatment are further limited by other factors that include medication expense and lack of insurance coverage, concurrent medical conditions, drug interactions, adverse drug effects, and individual lack of therapeutic response in some individuals.  

    Fortunately, there are options that are not FDA approved (off-label) that are generally safe and efficacious for obesity treatment backed by clinical experience and medical literature. This educational series will focus on safe and efficacious obesity treatment in challenging patients when FDA approved therapeutic agents are not an option. 

    With disease management, the weight-gain potential of medications is often not considered when choosing pharmacotherapy options. Many commonly used medications associated with weight gain have alternatives with weight neutral or weight losing effects.  Shifting medication choices from weight positive to weight neutral or negative choices can be an effective means of facilitating weight loss.

    Description: 

    With limited options and cost limitations for prescribing anti-obesity medications, experienced obesity medicine specialists recognize the importance of off-label use of medication for obesity treatment.

The session will also include discussion of long-term use of medications that are only approved by the FDA for short-term use. The program will include an interactive discussion of a number of patient scenarios where alternative medications can be considered for obesity treatment.

    Description: 

    This session will review weight bias, its definition and sources in the lives of pediatric patients with obesity as well as their parents. The media’s view and assumptions of obesity drives weight bias in our society and forms the basis for a great deal of stigma our patients face. In pediatric obesity medicine, weight bias is particularly important to recognize as it affects not only the patients themselves but also their families. Participants will review potential causes for their own weight bias, and discuss the harms of weight bias for pediatric patients We will discuss solutions to combating weight bias and how to help families overcome this barrier to accessing healthcare.
