About this book

Comprised exclusively of clinical cases illustrating current strategies for obesity management across various types of conditions, this concise, practical casebook will provide obesity medicine specialists and all physicians who treat obesity with the best real-world strategies to properly diagnose and treat patients struggling with weight management. Each section includes a pair of cases that open with a unique clinical presentation, followed by a description of the diagnosis, assessment and management technique recommended and employed, as well as the case outcome and clinical pearls and pitfalls. Cases included in the first sections depict issues involved in obesity management in metabolic syndrome, cardiovascular disease, insulin resistance syndromes, genetic predisposition, and type 2 diabetes. Subsequent sections present cases highlighting particular management strategies, such as psychiatric medication induced weight gain, behavioral interventions, bariatric surgery and pharmacotherapy for obesity.

Pragmatic and reader-friendly, Obesity Management: A Clinical Casebook is an excellent resource for physicians who treat overweight and obesity and the complications of these conditions.
