Abstract

This edition of the features five CPD articles, which I hope will add some new knowledge that may influence your practice. In the first, by EW Derman et al, obesity is defined as an excessive amount of body fat or adiposity, which is measured by the body mass index. There is ample evidence that obesity is clinically associated with a variety of chronic diseases and medical conditions, such as coronary artery disease. The authors stress that obesity is a global phenomenon and that, in South Africa, an estimated 29% of adult men and 56% of adult women are overweight or obese.
