new emphasis on treating obesity
You'll see a new emphasis on treating obesity...for two reasons.
First is the growing popularity of Redux (dexfenfluramine), fen/phen, and other diet pills. Many patients are asking about these ...but there hasn't been much guidance on when and how to use them.
Secondly, Dr. C. Everett Koop will make a very high-profile launch for new obesity treatment guidelines...that call for more aggressive treatment by physicians.
