Improving care of our obese patients

Improving care of our obese patients
Although we all know that >50% of the women that we care for are overweight or obese, these numbers cannot be over emphasized (1). At present, overweight and obesity are the most common diseases seen in our patients, and these conditions are less well studied than most other diagnoses, such as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), recurrent pregnancy loss, and thyroid dysfunction. Although many studies have focused their primary objective on the association between body mass index (BMI) and reproductive outcomes (i.e., obesity increases the risk of miscarriage or obesity lowers pregnancy rates [PRs]), there are rare studies focusing on how to better care for these women.
