Obesity has reached epidemic levels in the U.S., and it is a contributor to the development of diabetes, cardiovascular disease, obstructive sleep apnea, some forms of cancer, and many other diseases. It is imperative that primary care clinicians incorporate obesity care into their medical practice.
