The first step in helping more patients shed extra kilos is to give them the information they need. Physicians should tell patients what their BMI is — and if the doctor doesn't mention it, patients should ask — and let them know whether they’re at a normal weight or not. They can then talk with them about diet, exercise and other lifestyle habits, and help patients understand how obesity affects their health. For obese patients who want to lose weight, doctors can steer them in the right direction.
