Is There a Prescription to Treat Pediatric Obesity?
Am J Lifestyle Med. 2020 Jan-Feb; 14(1):36-39.AJ

Abstract

Pediatric obesity is complex-in every way. The pathogenesis, which is a result of a multitude of factors combined with social and environmental factors makes it a crisis with overwhelming challenges. It is difficult to treat pediatric obesity; however, guidelines attempt to clarify how to approach treatment. These strategies are mostly interventions in lifestyle because only 1 medication is approved for treating obesity in children. The approach to the treatment of pediatric obesity will need to be a one that relies on the available data, a continued drive for additional research and publication, sharing of practice experience, and continued efforts at prevention.
