Treating childhood obesity.

Abstract

Nearly a third of children and adolescents are overweight or obese, which puts them at higher risk for diseases such as hypertension, type 2 diabetes, stroke, coronary heart disease and some cancers. This article discusses strategies physicians can use to address the issue of weight with children and their families. It also describes the efforts of a Minnesota collaborative that is working to improve obesity care and ensure insurance coverage for it.
