Did you know that there's a communications disconnect when it comes to weight loss discussions among physicians and patients? According to a new survey conducted by Eisai Inc., in partnership with the Obesity Action Coalition (OAC) and The Obesity Society (TOS), only 56 percent of adults affected by overweight or obesity report ever having discussed weight with their doctor, yet all doctors surveyed say they counsel their patients affected by overweight or obesity about diet and exercise. A little communication can go a long way, potentially improving related health risk factors for millions as obesity rates continue to rise.
