Overweight & Obesity
The draft Clinical Practice Guidelines for Weight Control and Obesity Management have been developed by the NHMRC. These are the first guidelines for weight control and obesity management ever issued in Australia, providing detailed evidence-based guidance for doctors and health professionals regarding the assessment and management of overweight and obesity.
The guidelines highlight important health concerns associated with overweight and obesity and, through the provision of information to doctors for at-risk groups, aim to improve the health of people with obesity-related conditions such as diabetes, cardiovascular disease and some cancers. These guidelines have also been developed partly in response to the need for consistent information, as there is much misleading and confusing information available in both public and scientific literature.
