This site has been developed to enable healthcare professionals to
explore the science behind obesity, and to help facilitate empathetic
and supportive weight management discussions with patients.
Obesity is a chronic disease that affects 650 million adults
worldwide. It has a substantial health impact with 200+ possible
complications affecting many organs and systems.1, 2 As a
result, healthcare professionals (HCPs) see patients with
obesity throughout their clinical practice and widely recognise it as
a serious, chronic disease that often relapses.3 Yet, the
number of people living with obesity continues to rise, highlighting
the need to provide medical professionals with evidence-based tools to
tackle the growing global obesity epidemic effectively.
By understanding the scientific principles that underlie the development of obesity and identifying challenges in an evidence-based manner, barriers to effective obesity management can be overcome. Rethink Obesity® aims to provide this science based information, in an easily accessible manner, to healthcare professionals so they are able to enhance their clinical practice and achieve sustainable results for their patients living with obesity.
