Obesity Mechanisms and Clinical Management

Jose Colon, M.D., M.P.H.
Thursday, January 24, 2019
7:00 PM CT

Summary:

We’ve all heard the proverbial advice for achieving a healthy body and maintaining our weight: exercise and “eat right.” But these recommendations don’t always yield the enviable results your patients desire. In the past, obesity was understood in fairly simple terms: excess body weight resulting from eating too much and exercising too little. Obesity is now regarded as a chronic medical disease with serious health implications caused by a complex set of factors including nutritional and metabolic inadequacies, hormone imbalances, and the gut microbiome. Health risks such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, osteoarthritis, infertility, cancer, and other chronic conditions increase with obesity. The SpectraCell solution is integral to your goal of identifying contributing factors and optimizing patient outcomes by delivering targeted treatment options.


Learning Objectives:

  • Mechanism linking diabetes mellitus and obesity
  • How obesity affects all age groups from pediatric to geriatric
  • Nutritional considerations in weight management as well as other mechanisms including hormonal, environmental factors, sleep disturbances, and the microbiome
