About the Obesity Algorithm
The Obesity Algorithm, presented by OMA, helps clinicians navigate the various steps involved in treating patients affected by overweight or obesity. This educational tool offers health care providers an overview of principles that are necessary to consider when evaluating patients and implementing personalized treatment plans. Within these plans are options for nutrition strategies, exercise prescription, behavior modification, weight-management medications, and discussion of surgical options. In addition to weight loss, the algorithm emphasizes optimizing health, decreasing disease risk, and improving overall quality of life.
