BMI Weight Status

The global obesity epidemic is on the rise, and endocrinologists are at the forefront of diagnosing its underlying causes and prescribing treatment plans. Our latest Scientific Statements, Obesity Pathogenesis and The Science of Obesity Management, provide a comprehensive overview of the state of science in the obesity field and identify areas of future research.

To ensure individuals with obesity receive care based on the latest scientific evidence, we developed Clinical Practice Guidelines on the pharmacological management of obesity, pediatric obesity, and management of the post-bariatric surgery patient.
