Overcoming Obesity 2023 (Live) -Early Intervention in Weight Management: Treating Pre-Obesity
Treatment of people with unhealthy weight has typically focused on those with obesity or in those with BMI ≥ 27 with existing comorbidities; however, evidence indicates that the negative effects of excess weight on morbidity and mortality begin at lower BMI categories. Properly identifying at-risk patients who have pre-obesity and initiating treatment earlier may interrupt the progression towards further weight gain, obesity, and prevent or delay comorbidities. This engaging and interactive session will underscore the risks associated with pre-obesity, highlight best practices for screening and taking a weight history, and review practical treatment strategies to halt progression of the disease.
