ABOM Diplomates Offer Evidence-Based Care to Patients With Obesity, New Study Finds

In examining three evidence-based obesity management guidelines – AHA/ACC/TOS, AACE/ACE and OMA, the study found that the majority of physicians had moderate or high adherence to recommendations in these guidelines. The study determined concordance by matching treatment services offered by the physicians with services recommended by each organization. Guideline-recommended treatments have been associated with clinically significant weight loss in clinical trials.
