Our Program: Obesity Algorithm

Intent of Use

The Obesity Algorithm is intended to be a “living document” updated once per year (as needed) and intended as an educational tool to assist in the translation of medical science and the clinical experience of the authors towards assisting clinicians better manage their patients affected by overweight and obesity.This algorithm is not intended to be interpreted as “rules” and/or directives regarding medical care of an individual patient. While it is hoped many clinicians may find this algorithm helpful, the final decision regarding the optimal care of the patient affected by overweight and obesity is dependent upon the individual clinical presentation and the judgment of the clinician who is tasked with directing a treatment plan that is in the best interest of the patient.
