    Description: 

    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.

  • The Art and Science of Deprescribing

    Description: 

    No matter what dietary or surgical intervention is used to treat patients with obesity, knowing how to deprescribe, especially for patients with type 2 diabetes, is critical. This session will address the practical and critical skill of deprescribing medications as patients with diabetes and other metabolic disease lose weight.  

    Successful obesity medicine providers will understand that their treatment will alter the medication needs of their patients. Therefore, obesity medicine clinicians are medically, ethically, and legally required to have the necessary skills to keep patients safe. Medication deprescription is an anticipated outcome with weight loss, but there is a lack of guidelines on how to safely proceed with medication changes. This session will provide obesity providers with guidance on proper medication deprescribing

  • Pharmacotherapy of Complex Obesity: A Case Based Approach

    Includes Credits

    Silvana Pannain, MD

    CME/CE Expiration Date: 4/25/2024* 

    *The expiration date listed above is the last day CME/CE credit can be claimed for this specific presentation.

    Description: 

    More than one-third of adults in the United States suffer from the chronic disease of obesity. While lifestyle modification is the cornerstone of any weight loss treatment, weight loss achieved through lifestyle modifications alone is often limited and difficult to maintain. Therefore, pharmacotherapy, when used appropriately in combination with lifestyle modification plays an important role in the treatment of obesity and improves both short-term and long-term outcomes. 

    The session will offer a case-based, practical guide to current strategies in obesity management across various conditions such as drug induced weight gain, prediabetes and type 2 diabetes, polycystic ovary syndrome, depression, binge eating, other psychiatric conditions, cardiovascular disease, suboptimal post bariatric surgery weight loss or post bariatric surgery weight regain, and monogenic obesity. Finally, the session will discuss the treatment of the patient with overweight/obesity who also has prediabetes or diabetes and recommend appropriate diabetes medications to prescribe that consider a weight centric approach.
