Medical management of obesity is suggested for those patients whose BMI is <35 kg/m2.
It includes diet and life style management and also the addition of certain medicines to aid in weight loss.
Obesity management is always multi dimensional.
Diet and Lifestyle modifications are the mainstay for for patients who are overweight but not obese (BMI > 25 kg/m2 to < 30 Kg/m2).
For Class 1 Obesity ( BMI > 30 kg/m2 – 35 kg/m2) diet and exercise alone may not suffice.
These patients may need certain medicines to achieve weight loss.
These medicines are not to be taken without the advise of a trained weight loss doctor as they can have many side effects.
