Risk predictions are based on the study that has used the UK primary care database with records of 570,000 adult patients. *
Based on whether patients maintained or lost their weight during the initial four-year period of the research, they were divided into two groups. Follow-up was conducted over a period of 15 years to determine differences between the two groups of patients regarding the development of ten obesity-related comorbidities.
Based on the information you provided, the data show an average risk in both study groups – the one, where the patients have maintained a stable body weight and the another, where the patients have lost an average of 13% of their initial body weight.
Dieting, prescription weight loss medications, and referrals to a nutritionist or bariatric surgery were also noted in the study group that lost body weight.Dieting, prescription weight loss medications, and referrals to a nutritionist or bariatric surgery were also noted in the study group that lost body weight.
