Abstract

A 31-year-old male with a history of obesity, type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) and hypercholesterolemia came to our clinic for medical weight-loss management. According to his initial anthropometric measurements (weight - 193 kg, height - 181 cm, and body mass index (BMI) - 58 kg/m2) patient had morbid obesity. In order to educate our patient about good nutrition, physical activity and the need of sun exposure we used an online system based on the video lessons, full of humor, pictures, and cartoons. Even one month of watching the short educational movies was sufficient for the patient to form the habits of healthy eating, including restriction of fat and digestible carbohydrates and increase in daily consumption of low-fat dairy products, slow carbohydrates, protein and fiber. Endocrinologist was regularly available for any questions and inquiries that the patient might have had. In addition to the dietary recommendations subcutaneous liraglutide 2.4 mg daily was initiated. After 8 months of treatment the patient has lost 58 kg and reached the body weight of 135 kg; moreover, he had motivation to continue losing weight.
