Management of overweight is important
To help prevent and manage obesity in adult patients, a new Canadian guideline makes recommendation of body mass index measurement for both prevention and management and structured behavioral changes. The guideline will be useful for physicians and health care providers.

Obesity, world over, is a a public health issue because  it may lead to  onset of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, arthritis and back pain. Prevention is better than cure, as the old wheeze says. The incidence of death was on the increase  among obese patients. Obesity related deaths in Canadian adults has almost doubled
Adolescents with normal weight gradually gained weight as adults (about 0.5 -1.0 kg every 2 years on average). This cumulative increase in body weight, in many cases, that goes unnoticed is significant as this may it may cause creeping health problems in the future. So, management of even small weight gains is a must and should not be ignored.

 1. Knowing of body mass and prevention.

 2. Proper health care advice to adolescents with normal and obese adult.

 3. Recommendation of suitable programs for obese adults to prevent high risk of diabetes.

 4. Restrictions on routine medications to prevent overweight.

 5. Behavioral interventions for overweight and obesity require sustained long-term commitment to change diet and physical activity;
personal motivation, talk with weight loss patients are other factors that need to be seriously considered. said  Dr. Brett Thombs, a member of the Task Force.

Overweight is preventable if one  patiently follows experts' advice on dietary habits and regular non-strenuous aerobic exercise regimen. http://0126124558.html
