Obesity and Venous Disease: Risk Factors and Key Diagnostic Challenges


“When patients with obesity experience a thromboembolic event, it is very prudent to not only assume that all the cases are because of obesity. It can be because of other factors such as age, race, smoking history, surgery, or trauma," Shagun Bindlish, MD, medical director at One Medical, in Dublin, California and associate editor for the Obesity Medicine Association’s new journal Obesity Pillars, said in an interview with Patient Care Online.

Bindlish recently sat down with Patient Care to discuss obesity and venous disease, a topic she recently wrote about in Obesity Pillars. In the video below, Bindlish discusses the primary risk factors associated with obesity and key challenges to diagnosing and treating venous disease in patients with obesity.
