Structured lifestyle change programs, where participants achieve 5-7% weight loss, can reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes by 58% in adults at high risk for the disease. Through this web-based case studies discussion, participants will appreciate obesity as a chronic, progressive, and relapsing disease; review successful strategies for weight loss and weight loss maintenance; learn how to activate these strategies in CDC-recognized lifestyle change programs; and discuss ways to approach participants, and adjust treatment, if weight loss stalls or is less than anticipated.
Participants who attend this activity will develop skills to overcome common challenges to participants’ weight loss and weight loss maintenance within CDC-recognized lifestyle change programs.
At the end of this presentation, participants will be able to:
-- Understand role of behavior modification as the cornerstone of diabetes prevention
-- Appreciate obesity as a chronic, progressive, and relapsing disease
--Understand the difference between weight loss and weight loss maintenance
--Utilize case studies to apply ways to adjust treatment plan if weight loss progress less than expected or progress stalls
