Docs Must Treat Obesity Like Other Chronic Illnesses
The Obesity Society, American Heart Association and American College of Cardiology want docs to treat obesity as serious as other diseases, such as diabetes and heart disease. It’s recommended that doctors discuss diet options that include a vegetarian diet, low-sodium plan or a low-carb diet, writes USA Today. They also need to encourage exercise in hopes for patients to lose 5-10 percent of their body weight.
