90. What bloodwork and tests are expected for an Obesity Assessment? (RETHINKING OBESITY Part 3 of 5)
Welcome back to the "RETHINKING OBESITY" podcast series. This is part three of five.
In this episode, we cover what bloodwork and tests are expected in an obesity assessment. You will learn about important tests beyond BMI for a comprehensive obesity exam.
It's not about pinpointing one hormone or factor that's solely responsible. Instead, it's a combination of multiple factors, which I discuss in this value-packed episode.
While it may sound disappointing not to have a quick fix, the good news is that effective treatment is available. A comprehensive approach, including behavioral training, psychological support, and medical intervention, can yield positive and lasting results. Join me for part four of the RETHINKING OBESITY Series where I dive further into the pillar of treatments for obesity.
