Bethesda, MD (Feb. 27, 2017) -- Patients with obesity need a multidisciplinary approach to achieve a healthy weight, and the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) believes that gastroenterologists are in a unique position to lead the care team. To provide gastroenterologists with a comprehensive, multi-disciplinary process to guide and personalize innovative obesity care for safe and effective weight management, including a model for how to operationalize business issues, AGA has created an Obesity Practice Guide. The program includes an obesity program to help gastroenterologists manage their patients with obesity, as well as a framework focused on the business operational issues related to the management of obese patients, which are published in Clinical Gastroenterology and Hepatology, the clinical practice journal of the American Gastroenterological Association. "The epidemic of obesity continues at alarming rates with a high burden to our economy and society," said Sarah Streett, MD, an author of both papers, chair of the AGA Institute Practice Management and Economics Committee, and clinical associate professor and director of IBD Stanford University School of Medicine, CA. "The American Gastroenterological Association understands the importance of embracing obesity as a chronic, relapsing disease and supports a multidisciplinary approach to the management of obesity." POWER: Practice Guide on Obesity and Weight Management, Education and Resources1 Obesity is a major modifiable cause of diseases of the digestive tract that routinely goes unaddressed. Gastrointestinal disorders resulting from obesity are more frequent and often present sooner than type 2 diabetes mellitus and cardiovascular disease, which means gastroenterologists have an opportunity to address obesity and provide effective therapy for their patients. Patients who are overweight or obese are often seen by gastroenterologists due to gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and its associated risks of Barrett's esophagus and esophageal cancer, gallstone disease, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease and non-alcoholic steatohepatitis, and colon cancer. As internists, specialists in digestive disorders and endoscopists, gastroenterologists are in a unique position to play an important role in the multidisciplinary treatment of obesity. "We created the practice guide on obesity and weight management to help gastroenterologists develop a multidisciplinary team and obesity care model for their practice, including patient goal setting, readiness assessment, evaluation, and treatment with diet, medication, and bariatric endoscopy and surgery," said Andres Acosta, MD, PhD, lead author of the paper and assistant professor of medicine, Clinical Enteric Neuroscience Translational and Epidemiological Research (C.E.N.T.E.R.), division of gastroenterology and hepatology, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, MN. "It is our hope that by working in a team-based approach, gastroenterologists can guide and personalize obesity care for safe and effective weight management for our patients." The Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES), The Obesity Society (TOS), and North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition (NASPGHAN) contributed content to the POWER program, which was endorsed with input by the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE), American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS), American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD), Obesity Medicine Association (OMA) and Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND). Episode-of-Care Framework for the Management of Obesity: Moving Towards High Value, High Quality Care2 The treatment of obesity needs a collaborative approach involving multiple stakeholders. AGA established an obesity episode of care model to develop a framework to support value-based management of patients with obesity, focusing on the provision of non-surgical and endoscopic services. The framework will help gastroenterology practices assess their ability to participate in and implement an episode of care for obesity, and understand the essentials of coding and billing for these services. The goal of episode framework is to provide gastroenterologists with strategies to obtain compensation for high value care, in a flexible format that can be adapted to the resources of both large and small practices. It is essential that data coordination take place between all members of the multi-disciplinary team who are providing therapeutic services to the patient to ensure high value continuity of care. The American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery (ASMBS), American Psychological Association (APA), American Pharmacists Association (APhA), and Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics (AND) contributed to the obesity episode of care framework. 1 Acosta A, Streett S et al..

CHEYENNE, WY--(Marketwired - November 27, 2016) - Developing and maintaining a nutritionally balanced diet is a struggle, especially for the millions of Americans who are overweight or obese. Even with strict meal plans, losing weight and consuming exclusively healthy foods and drinks is difficult. According to a study by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, the majority of Americans consume drinks and foods with low nutritional value and high amounts of fat, cholesterol, sugar and sodium. Struggling with excessive hunger between meals, uncontrollable cravings for junk food, and lack of adequate physical exercise, millions of individuals find it difficult to establish and maintain a healthy diet. This results in excessive weight gain, low energy levels and a variety of health issues like heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and hypertension. It is important, therefore, to moderate food as well as beverage consumption using a customized diet plan. The popular Mediterranean Diet is a viable option for individuals wishing to balance protein, carbohydrate and fat consumption while losing weight in a healthy and effective way. The Mediterranean Diet recommends a balanced regimen of certain types of foods: While the Mediterranean Diet involves customized dieting based on healthy meal choices and discourages the "starvation" approach that many fad diets endorse, it can still be challenging to maintain. Like any other diet, it requires consistency, customization and professional supervision to be effective. According to Dr. Nishant Rao, the resident medical expert at Diet Doc, a nationally recognized weight loss center, it is important to examine individual body composition, dietary needs and specific weight loss goals when picking a diet plan. At Diet Doc, the primary goal is to optimize fat loss with minimal muscle loss. To accomplish this, Dr. Rao suggests either focusing on dieting and losing fat, exercising and building lean muscle, or balancing between the two. He furthers, "once the goals have been set, then the next objective part of any diet is determining the macro targets (protein, carbohydrates and fat that constitute all diets), which sometimes very dramatically depending on the particular diet's philosophy. Some diets might recommend high levels of protein with low amounts of fat while diets like the ketogenic diet are actually high in fat and low in carbohydrates. The Mediterranean diet actually offers a balance between the three macro targets." In order to maximize weight loss results and target individual needs based on dietary needs and past weight loss struggles, Diet Doc offers solutions like Low Dose Naltrexone (LDN) and Metwell, which helps balance metabolism and reduce appetite without harmful side effects. Medical weight loss solutions like these, even in combination with popular diets like the Mediterranean Diet, have been shown to be effective in addressing portion control or emotional eating issues. Such solutions, of course, are most effective under doctor-supervision. Diet Doc offers weight loss and diet consulting to all patients, regardless of their dietary needs or history.

If upheld as constitutional, the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act that passed in 2010 promises to change health care delivery systems in the United States, partly by shifting focus from disease treatment to disease prevention. Registered dietitians (RDs) have already taken an active role in health care areas that stand to be directly affected by provisions in the health care reform bill. However, nutrition's vital role in preventing diseases and conditions potentially could translate to additional opportunities for RDs as a result of this reform. Specific dietetics-related areas targeted by health care reform include medical nutrition therapy for chronic conditions and employee wellness incentive programs. However, dietetics practitioners are not necessarily established in the language of the bill as the essential providers of specific services or as reimbursable practitioners. Thus, although it is possible health care reform could affect demand-and, in turn, supply-of RDs, the actual effect of this legislation is difficult to predict. © 2012 Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
