Clinical Management of Obesity


October 11, 2023

Book Details

Provides detailed guidance to the practicing physician on how and why to implement the new complications-centric approach to the treatment of obesity in their clinical practice.
The rational for approaching obesity as a medical condition requiring intervention to reduce the risk of diabetes, CV events, and other serious diseases is presented, including the importance of understanding the pathophysiologic basis of obesity and the long list of obesity-related comorbidities.
Major medical society obesity management guidelines which have recently been released are incorporated into the book. All currently available anti-obesity medications are covered, including a detailed discussion of the phase 3 clinical trial data for each agent, its mechanism of action, adverse events and contraindications, and drug prescribing information. Currently, only a PDF of the book is available.
