When Lifestyle Interventions are Not Enough – The Spectrum of Comprehensive Methods for Long-Term Weight Loss in T2DM Patients
Lifestyle interventions form the basics of obesity management in T2DM patients, however, due to challenges with adherence or the underlying physiology of obesity as a disease, weight regain is common and long-term weight maintenance is challenging with this approach alone. In this webinar, Dr. Eckel, Dr. Aronne, and Dr. Still discuss options beyond lifestyle interventions, including obesity pharmacotherapy and metabolic surgery, as well as their efficacy and safety.
- Obesity pharmacotherapy
- Rationale & indications
- Efficacy & safety of available obesity medications
- Overview of key studies with obesity pharmacotherapy
- Basic rules for prescribing obesity pharmacotherapy
- Metabolic surgery
- Types of metabolic surgery & indications
- Efficacy & safety of metabolic surgery
Primary care physicians, cardiologists, endocrinologists, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and pharmacists.
After completing this activity, the participant should be better able to:
- Discuss the efficacy and safety of antiobesity pharmacotherapy and metabolic surgery for the management of obesity in patients with type 2 diabetes.
- Select treatment options that incorporate pharmacotherapy and metabolic surgery, in addition to lifestyle modifications, for the long-term management of obesity in patients with type 2 diabetes.
