Guidelines for children with obesity: how families make a difference

A father and son's journey with obesity led to the creation of guidelines for treating children and adolescents with obesity. The guidelines emphasize the importance of involving families in the treatment process and offer various options such as nutritional support, exercise, behavioral therapy, medication, and surgery. The rise in obesity-related illnesses like diabetes and high cholesterol is a cause for concern. Parents play a crucial role in supporting their children's health, and healthcare professionals can provide guidance and personalized treatment plans. It's important to address the emotional and mental well-being of children with obesity, as weight bias can lead to low self-esteem and other psychological effects. Creating a supportive environment at home and focusing on a healthy lifestyle are key. To learn more and get personalized guidance, schedule an appointment at Cline Medical Group:
