Treating Obesity & T2D: Experts Say Simultaneous, Early Intervention is Key


Early intervention is crucial to help prevent complications in patients with obesity and type 2 diabetes. Two experts explain more, here.

“It is very important that when a health care provider identifies a patient with both type 2 diabetes (T2D) and obesity or overweight, that they manage both conditions simultaneously and straight away," said Peminda K. Cabandugama, MD, director of Digital Obesity at the Cleveland Clinic and a member of the Obesity Medicine Association, in a recent interview with Patient Care Online.

Dr Cabandugama, joined by Shagun Bindlish, MD, medical director of One Medical in Dublin, California, sat down to discuss treatment strategies for patients with obesity and T2D, including the importance of early intervention in preventing complications, why prediabetes should not be ignored, and more.
