Weight Management: Adults FAQs, part of the Geisinger Healthcare FAQs series, is intended as a patient education resource for the growing numbers of adults battling obesity.

This book is an educational tool written to answer the common questions posed by patients to health care providers. Topics include available treatments for obesity, weight management programs, diet, exercise, medical and surgical options. The text also addresses different categories and causes of obesity and why we now face an obesity epidemic with its side effects-rising numbers of patients with diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep disorders, and degenerative arthritis. As with all titles in the FAQ series, this book works to educate patients and provide concise, current information for common ailments.
