Description:

Dr. Daniel will discuss a treatment model that is comprehensive in addressing complications, the staging of risk and disease severity. In the general approach to the patient affected by overweight or obesity, clinicians must identify patients who will benefit most from therapy, establish therapeutic targets and goals, and identify the modality and intensity of treatment in order to optimize the benefit to risk ratio.

    Harold E. Bays, MD, FOMA, FTOS, FACC, FACE, FNLA, Dipl. ABOM and W. Timothy Garvey, MD
    CME/CE Expiration Date: 9/01/2021*
    *The expiration date listed above is the last day CME/CE credit can be claimed for this specific presentation.

     

    Description:  The measurement of body mass index (BMI) has contributed to the recognition of obesity as a major public health problem. However, in many situations, BMI has become the sole diagnostic criterion for defining overweight and obesity and indicating the need for intervention. Should BMI be the primary measure of obesity? Understand both points of view as each presenter debates his perspective — one supporting the use of BMI as the diagnostic tool for obesity and the other in favor of the opposite.
