A Medscape poll found that more than one third of healthcare providers (HCPs) do not consider obesity to be a disease state. Only 6% of respondents indicated that obese patients receiving interventions often or always succeed at long-term weight management; however, less than a quarter answered that they routinely offer counseling, and only about 6% recommend surgery for weight loss. Worldwide, obesity has nearly tripled since 1975, with more than 650 million individuals now considered obese.

Given the vast number of obese persons and the persistent challenges, misconceptions, and frustrations experienced by both patients and HCPs, an understanding of best practices for confronting obesity is crucial. Are you familiar with the latest guidelines and advice on how to manage the care of patients who are obese? Test yourself with this short quiz.
