Roles of Mental Health Professionals in Multidisciplinary Medically Supervised Treatment Programs for Obesity
TODAY’S CHALLENGE in health care is to prevent or diagnose, treat, and manage acute or chronic diseases that affect many people while controlling cost, maintaining standards of care, and improving quality of life.1 Obesity is one such treatable disease because of its association with physical, psychosocial, and disability costs that affect quality of life.2-4 In the United States, obesity reaches epidemic proportions, with an estimated 300,000 deaths per year attributed to it.5,6 For the severely obese, it is a chronic, heterogeneous, multisystemic disease that has many equivocal causes and consequences.4 As with non–insulin-dependent diabetes,7 obesity treatment is not considered or managed as a serious problem and presents difficulties in conforming to the current health care system of treatment and reimbursement.8 Yet, it is expensive to society.9 When compared to our total yearly health care bill of approximately $884 billion (in 1993 dollars),10 the 1990 direct and indirect costs associated with the disease burden, death, disability, products, and services associated with obesity totaled approximately $100 billion.11,12 The prevalence of adults participating in some kind of weight-loss program is 25% of men and 45% of women, or one in three adults.12-14 Purchasers of obesity treatments are increasingly scrutinizing the associated costs, quality, and outcomes of programs.15,16 A proposal has been made to accredit weight-loss treatment programs in a manner similar to that used in accrediting hospital programs.17

Childhood Obesity Obesity in children and adolescents is a serious issue with many health and social consequences that often continue into adulthood. Implementing prevention programs and getting a better understanding of treatment for youngsters is important to controlling the obesity epidemic. Many parents are rightly concerned about their child's weight and how it affects them. They look for specific answers for prevention and treatment options. Unfortunately, the state of the science is a lot less precise than we would like. Are kids too concerned about their weight? What are the best strategies for prevention? What treatments work over a long time? Researchers are trying to answer those and many other questions. In many cases, common sense works well. In situations where there are serious health, psychological or social problems, parents should seek out the best possible advice. Note: The term "childhood obesity" may refer to both children and adolescents. In general, we use the word, "children" to refer to 6 to 11 years of age, and "adolescents" to 12 to 17 years of age. If otherwise, and when possible, we will use a specific age or age range. Prevalence and Identification

No Magic Pill for Weight Loss
I’m a post-menopausal woman of 55 years – and, unfortunately, about the same number of pounds (~50) over what I weighed before menopause. I sent once or twice for a diet aid through the mail, and since then I’ve been inundated with literature from every diet aid vendor in the world, it seems! Just recently, I received two offers promising to make me lose five or more pounds a day! I also saw an ad for an easy exercise system that can "oxidize" fat away. Can you comment on these seemingly impossible promises? And how do I get rid of the new spare tire around my waist that never was there before?
A: "Impossible promises" is exactly what all these amazing diet offers are, even though they come with a "money-back guarantee." It seems that whenever I open the newspaper or a magazine or see a flyer posted on a board, I read about some miracle drug or supplement that will enable a person to lose lots of weight in a short time. After working with various obese patients and friends over the years, I'm convinced that there is no magic pill. Yes, phentermine and the Fen-Phen combination enabled people to lose 30, 40 or even 50 pounds, but as soon as they stopped taking the appetite suppressant, the weight returned. And fenfluramine, the "fen" part of fen-phen, has been shown to cause some heart valve problems, so was eventually taken off the market. (Phentermine is thought to be safe and is still in wide use.)

17. Understanding Adult Obesity
What are the health risks? What can you do about it? What is obesity? To most people,the term obesity means to be very overweight. How is obesity treated?

More than 60 percent of Americans aged 20 years and older are overweight. One-quarter of American adults are also obese, putting them at increased health risk for chronic diseases such as heart disease, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, stroke, and some forms of cancer. This fact sheet provides basic information about obesity: What is it? How is it measured? What causes it? What are the health risks? What can you do about it?
What is obesity?
To most people, the term "obesity" means to be very overweight. Health professionals define "overweight" as an excess amount of body weight that includes muscle, bone, fat, and water. "Obesity" specifically refers to an excess amount of body fat. Some people, such as bodybuilders or other athletes with a lot of muscle, can be overweight without being obese.
How is obesity measured?

Link found between obesity and brain receptors
February 1, 2001 Web posted at: 6:30 p.m. EST (2330 GMT) Elizabeth Cohen CNN Medical Correspondent UPTON, New York (CNN) Brain scans show that obese people, just like drug addicts, have fewer receptors for dopamine, a neurotransmitter that helps produce feelings of satisfaction and pleasure. The finding at the Brookhaven National Laboratory has prompted scientists to theorize that one reason people overeat is to stimulate the dopamine "pleasure" circuits in the brain, just as addicts do by taking drugs. "This is the first scientific contribution that the addictive pathways are deficient in the obese and it may explain their cravings," said Dr. George Blackburn, an associate professor of nutrition at Harvard Medical School. In the study, scientists measured the number of dopamine receptors in the brains of 10 severely obese individuals and in 10 people with normal weight, by giving each subject an injection containing a radiotracer a radioactive chemical "tag" designed to bind to dopamine receptors in the brain. Researchers then scanned the subjects' brains using a positron emission tomography (PET) camera, which picks up radioactive signals. The strength of the signal indicated the number of receptors.
