The 10-minute consultation: obesity

Advisory board: TBC


Obesity is recognised as a growing problem. It has commonly been described as 'a global epidemic', which is increasing at 'an alarming rate'. Furthermore, this epidemic is not restricted to industrialized societies: the increase is often faster in developing countries as they switch to western diets and habits. Obesity poses a major risk for chronic diseases, including type 2 diabetes mellitus, cardiovascular disease, hypertension and stroke, and certain forms of cancer.

Various methods can be used to reduce weight, such as regular exercise, combined with eating a healthy, well-balanced diet, but these tactics are often unsuccessful in the long term. A number of drug treatments are, therefore, also available.

The 10-minute consultation: obesity will provide a holistic approach to the assessment and management of overweight and obese patients, stressing the importance of ongoing patient review and recall to ensure delivery of high-quality, evidence-based treatment.
