Obesity Medicine 2022 - Masters Track (Recorded) 11 CME/CE

CME/CE Expiration Date: 05/21/2025* 

Highly experienced obesity medicine clinicians can attend advanced level sessions during the Masters Track that will build upon established experience in obesity medicine. These advanced level sessions are more specialized in nature and allow the learner to integrate and enhance new knowledge and skills into their practice. Attendees will be sitting in rounds with participation in polling and interactive discussions being encouraged. Presentations will focus on case-based, real life studies that will challenge your knowledge of obesity medicine and help advance your understanding of the disease and treatment strategies to the next level. 

Sessions during this track will focus on: 

  • Discussing the association between nutrition and cancer 
  • Prescriptive nutritional intervention using meal replacements 
  • Discussing various patient cases on obesity and adiposity-related diseases  
  • Future advances on anti-obesity medications in development 
  • Multidisciplinary panel discussion on complex patients 
  • Physical Limitations and Obesity  

Accreditation: 

The Obesity Medicine Association is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

The Obesity Medicine Association designates this enduring activity for a maximum of 11.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

    Description: 

    There is a marked variation in individual patient response to interventions designed to treat obesity and adiposity related diseases. The heterogenicity in obesity treatment response is not surprising when considering the numerous underlying factors that contribute to adiposity and associated conditions. This session will use case presentations to demonstrate how identifying patient phenotypic subgroups when choosing an anti-obesity agent, can improve clinical outcomes in patients treated for obesity.

    Description: 

    In 2020, the U.S. Census Bureau released estimates showing the 65-and-older population has grown rapidly since 2010. The growth of this population contributed to an increase in the national median age from 37.2 years in 2010 to 38.4 in 2019. Within these numbers, women make up a majority percentage. This percentage only continues to grow as they age within this group. This is the fastest rising age group and obesity specialists must be prepared to take care of this population. Additionally, a growing number of patients are seeking bariatric surgery and there is known significant risk of weight gain following surgery.  As this post-bariatric surgery population ages, we must also understand how menopause will increase their risk of weight regain after loss.  With this knowledge, we can better assist our patients through all stages of their life with weight management.

    Description: 

    This lecture focuses on the tight link between nutrition and cancer. It is estimated that about 30% of the risk of cancer can be attributed to diet, which is just below tobacco smoke and far, far above any other known risk factor. But what part of the diet is the culprit? For decades, the answer was unknown, but recent data from the last 20 years points directly to obesity and hyperinsulinemia as the primary culprit.

    Description: 

    The majority of women in the US will experience a pregnancy in their lifetime. Unfortunately, the treatment of obesity is, too often, not considered when preparing for and managing pregnancy or the postpartum period. In this lecture, we will discuss obesity treatment at various stages of a women’s reproductive life cycle.  We will explore the importance of obesity management at each stage and provide key recommendations.  We will discuss unique medication considerations, appropriate nutrition strategies, exercise guidelines, and special behavior change considerations. Participants will be able to apply practical strategies to treat women who are preparing for pregnancy, are pregnant, or are postpartum.

    Description: 

    Many people who seek treatment for obesity are able to lose weight; however, far fewer are able to successfully sustain the behavior changes required to maintain results long term. Psychological resilience is an individual’s capacity to negotiate, manage, and adapt to significant sources of stress or “bounce back” when confronted with significant physical or emotional experiences. Assessing and improving resilience may provide new opportunities to improve patient adherence and long-term results.

    Description: 

    Obesity and bariatric surgery are a risk factor for kidney stones and chronic kidney disease. Prevalence of kidney stones is higher amongst patients with obesity (11.2%) vs patients with normal weight (6.1%). Bariatric surgery is effective for weight loss, however bariatric surgery is associated with increased risk of kidney stones (HR 4.1) and CKD (HR 1.96).
    Because of the concurrent epidemics of obesity, metabolic syndrome, and diabetes (all independently associated with increased risks of stone formation), current projections estimate costs due to kidney stone disease to rise by $1.24 billion per year by 2030.
    The underlying mechanism for kidney stone formation in patients with obesity is thought to be due to insulin resistance, dietary factors and lithogenic urinary risk profile. Insulin resistance alters renal acid-base mechanism, resulting in acidic urine pH and thus increasing risk for uric acid stones. Obesity is also associated with excess nutritional intake of lithogenic substances promoting calcium Oxalate stones. In addition, patients with bariatric surgery are associated with significant hyperoxaluria leading to calcium oxalate stones and oxalate nephropathy leading to progressive chronic kidney disease, at times needing dialysi
