The pandemic of obesity in the majority of countries of the world has become a major health problem: obesity leads to a number of serious diseases including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, hypertension, stroke, cancer, psychological problems and a poor quality of life. Obesity affects almost every branch of medicine and clinical practice and this puts a huge strain on healthcare provision.

Managing Obesity has been written specifically for non-specialists (GPs, junior doctors and medical students) who increasingly need to treat obese patients.

The book begins with an overview of the causes of obesity, the mechanisms that lead to individuals becoming obese and the health issues associated with being obese. Later chapters discuss how obesity can be managed, including advanced pharmacotherapy options and surgery.
