Complications Of Obesity - New Textbook

>> Wednesday, March 13, 2013

For a new online textbook entitled Complications of Obesity (editors Wieland Kiess and Arya Sharma), published in Best Practice & Research, Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, I was asked to contribute a chapter about the metabolic complications of obesity.   In this chapter, I focus on diabetes, prediabetes, gestational diabetes, the metabolic syndrome, and polycystic ovary syndrome.

The textbook as a whole covers topics written by colleagues from around the world about the societal impact of obesity (including weight discrimination and bullying), complications of obesity ranging from sleep apnea to cancer to mental health impact, with a third section focussing on management of obesity.   We sincerely hope that this is a collection of information that will be useful to the public and the health care profession!

I am excited that you have arrived at my site, and I hope you are too - consider this the first step towards a Healthier New You!! As a medical doctor, Endocrinologist, and obesity specialist, I am absolutely passionate about helping people with weight management. Though there is certainly no magic cure for obesity, there IS a successful treatment plan out there for you - it is all about understanding the elements that contribute to your personal weight struggle, and then finding the treatment plan that suits your needs and your lifestyle. The way to finding your personal solution is to learn as much as you can about obesity: how our toxic environment has shaped us into an overweight society; the diversity of contributors to obesity; and what the treatment options out there are really all about. Knowledge Is Power!!

Are you ready to change your life? Let's begin our journey together, towards a healthier, happier you!!
