Collapse ARCHIVES: GLP-1-based Therapies, a Viable Medical Treatment for Obesity?
Barbara McGowan, MD, FRCP, PhD
*Note: All information and materials provided has expired for CME credit possibilities and is solely to be used for informational purposes only.

 

Description:
The incretin hormone GLP-1 acts as a satiety hormone, making it a potentially attractive target for the treatment of obesity. This lecture will discuss mechanisms by which GLP-1 affects satiety, review the efficacy of GLP-1-based therapies as weight loss agents in patients with type 2 diabetes, and include preliminary clinical trial data in patients without diabetes mellitus. The safety and current concerns surrounding this type of therapy will also be reviewed.

Collapse ARCHIVES: The Eating Behavior Questionnaire: A Novel Clinical Examination
Ed J. Hendricks, MD, MFOMA
Note: All information and materials provided has expired for CME credit possibilities and is solely to be used for informational purposes only.

 

Description:

Clinical and laboratory observations indicate that drug-induced weight loss is accompanied by significant changes in eating behavior. The Eating Behavior Questionnaire (EBQ)—a newly designed tool for measuring treatment-induced eating behavior change—will be presented and discussed during this lecture. Clinical data reveals that untreated patients have high EBQ scores, that treated patients have significantly lower EBQ scores, and that EBQ scores drop quickly and dramatically after treatment initiation.

Collapse ARCHIVES: The Sugar Pandemic: Policy Versus Politics
Robert Lustig, MD, MSL
*Note: All information and materials provided has expired for CME credit possibilities and is solely to be used for informational purposes only.

 

Description:
Sugar's potential for abuse, coupled with its toxicity and pervasiveness in the western diet, make it a primary culprit of the obesity epidemic. Sugar changes metabolism, raises blood pressure, critically alters the signaling of hormones and causes significant damage to the liver. This presentation will make the case for sugar to be controlled like alcohol and tobacco to protect public health.

*Note: All information and materials provided has expired for CME credit possibilities and is solely to be used for informational purposes only.


Description:

In Weight Control: A Question of Calories or Insulin?, Dr. Andreas Eenfeldt will delve into the controversies of the energy balance equation, suggesting that "calories consumed" versus "calories burned“ is an oversimplified explanation for how to control weight. The lecture will also discuss how insulin regulates energy balance, including how to address a few of the most common objections to this concept.
