Notes
  • Although modest, sustained weight loss can decrease the risks of morbidity and mortality associated with obesity, medical approaches to the treatment of obesity can be very expensive and time-consuming. Adjunctive use of appetite suppressants in selected patients and use of gastroplasty in morbidly obese individuals not responding to other treatments can be effective in obesity management. Self-help, work-site programmes, proprietary and lifestyle programmes may be of benefit. For patients who have failed to control their weight despite their best efforts, it may be more cost effective to address other risk factors, particularly aerobic fitness, smoking cessation, lipid and glucose control, rather than focus only on obesity management.
