Abstract:

This video is the second of a two-part series on the evaluation and management of adult obesity, which has become a major epidemic in the United States. Dr. Kathryn Kolasa and her colleagues discuss the appropriate use of over-the-counter and prescription medications to control obesity; the relationship between obesity in childhood and in adulthood; screening of patient-candidates for gastric bypass surgery based on body mass index and the presence of comorbidities; follow-up primary care for bariatric surgery patients; and community education strategies to help control obesity. Teaching points are presented within the context of actual physician-patient interactions. Special emphasis is given to the role of the family physician as role model and community educator in the nationwide effort to control the current obesity epidemic. The video concludes with a series of brief interviews between Dr. Kolasa and her family physician colleagues on the management of adult obesity.
