Vol. 18 No. SP1 (2023): CJGIM Obesity Special Issue: Part 1

Obesity is a growing epidemic and affects 1 in 4 Canadian adults and over 1 billion people worldwide. It is a significant risk for many other chronic diseases including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, fatty liver, certain cancers and most recently COVID-19. In 2020 the Clinical Practice Guidelines for Adults living with Obesity in Canada were published in the CMAJ and outlined an extensive overview of the evidence in obesity management. Although these guidelines were deeply impactful, there are still significant challenges in the ability for health care providers to translate these guidelines into clinical practice.
We will provide a summary of practical, commonly encountered questions and challenges in obesity management and cover a breadth of topics including epidemiology, pathophysiology and in-depth discussion on the 3 pillars of treatment divided into two separate supplements. These supplements aim to provide internal medicine specialists, general practitioners and sub-specialists with a resource for the practical application of the Clinical Practice Guidelines into day-to-day patient care.
