Clinical Guidelines on the Identification, Evaluation, and Treatment of Overweight and Obesity in Adults: The Evidence Report

First guidelines developed by the Federal Government to address overweight and obesity-conditions that affect an estimated 97 million Americans and are the second leading cause of preventable death in the United States. These evidence-based guidelines, developed by the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute in cooperation with the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, present a new approach for the assessment of overweight and obesity and establish principles of safe and effective weight loss. Recommendations are based on the most extensive review of the scientific literature to date. A valuable clinical tool for any health professional who works with overweight and obese patients. Includes treatment algorithm and other convenient references to aid the clinician.
