World Obesity Day - Take Home Message from Dr. Rigas
Dr Rigas’ take home messages this World Obesity Day:
- People don't choose to develop obesity; therefore the shame and blame needs to stop!
- We need to shift the conversation from loss of weight to gain in health
- Effective treatments such as anti-obesity medications and bariatric surgery do exist and may health improve your health and function
- I encourage people living with obesity or who have a strong family history of obesity to make an appointment with a GP who understands the science underlying obesity
