Managing Weight in General Practice
Doctors Sara and Lisa talk to Dietician Charlotte Cockman about managing weight for patients who are overweight or obese in General Practice. This includes a discussion around the definitions of overweight and obesity, risk factors, and what terms are less stigmatising when discussing weight with patients. Charlotte talks to us about her approach to weight, eating and health, and how this approach can encourage long term behavioural changes that focus on health and nutrition rather than weight. We discuss management options including what tier two and three NHS services do, as well as where some medications and surgery fit into this picture.
