Current guidelines advocate for the use of multiple interventions to address the genetic, behavioral, and metabolic factors that contribute to insufficient weight loss or weight regain. Weight-loss pharmacotherapy is a recommended approach with distinct mechanisms of action that can affect different aspects of obesity pathophysiology. In this activity, based on a recent live web broadcast, leading experts examine the pathophysiology of obesity, focusing on metabolic adaptation and the role of GLP-1 in energy consumption and expenditure and review the latest evidence for GLP-1–based agents. The panel also discusses clinically relevant patient scenarios to offer practical guidance on identifying ideal candidates for weight-loss medications and integrating these medications into individualized treatment plans in order to optimize health outcomes and promote long-term weight loss. Upon completion of this CE activity, participants will be able to: Recognize the role of weight-loss pharmacotherapy used adjunct to other treatment approaches for addressing obesity pathophysiology, including metabolic adaptation, Assess available evidence on current and emerging GLP-1–based weight-loss pharmacotherapies, including long-term efficacy and safety data, Incorporate GLP-1–based weight-loss pharmacotherapy, as appropriate, into individualized, evidence-based treatment plans for long-term obesity management.
