Program Description

The epidemic of obesity and its associated comorbidities—including insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes mellitus, as well as cardiovascular disease, arthritis, and obesity-related cancer—constitutes one of the most threatening public health problems in the United States. Past paradigms that encouraged people to exercise more and consume fewer calories and less fat have clearly failed to address these alarming trends. In this myCME House CallsTM video, a noted obesity medicine specialist and a dietician provide practical tips for how clinicians can educate and motivate their patients to undertake meaningful lifestyle style change, with a focus on how to implement a low-carbohydrate diet to attain meaningful, sustainable weight loss that leads to beneficial health outcomes.
