Obesity Medicine

Obesity medicine is a field which dedicated to the comprehensive treatment of patients with obesity. Obesity medicine takes into account the multi-factorial etiology of obesity in which behaviour development, environment, epigenetic, genetic, nutrition, physiology, and psychosocial contributors all play a role. As time passes, we become more knowledgeable about the complexity of obesity, and we have ascertained that there is a certain skill set and knowledge base that is required to treat this patient population. Clinicians in the field should understand how a myriad of factors contribute to obesity including: regulation of food intake and energy balance through enteroendocrine and neuroregulation, and adipokine physiology. Obesity medicine physicians should be skilled in identifying factors which have contributed to obesity and know how to employ methods (behavior modification, pharmacotherapy, and surgery) to treat obesity. No two people with obesity are similar, and it is important to approach each patient as an individual to determine which factors contributed to their obesity in order to effectively treat each patient.
