A Comprehensive Look at the Disease of Obesity (COURSE BUNDLE)
The medical community designated obesity as a disease in 2012 based on its etiology and impact on patients' lives. Obesity results from a combination of genetic, environmental, and behavioral factors, and it leads to numerous complications such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, hypertension, osteoarthritis, obstructive sleep apnea, cancer, gallbladder disease, and psychological disorders. The rise in obesity prevalence has paralleled a growing epidemic of diabetes. Obesity also contributes to the high rates of hypertension and dyslipidemia in the U.S.
The A Comprehensive Look at the Disease of Obesity course has 12 modules with each module taking an in-depth look at a different aspect of obesity. If you want to understand why the American Medical Association classified obesity as a disease, how to screen and diagnose patients for complications of obesity and how to broach the discussion with your patient on obesity treatment options, this course provides you with the details you need.
