Weight loss treatment in Canada obstructed by drop out rates
Weight management services in Alberta Canada reported that over a six year period 43% of their obese patients dropped out within six months of attending the program. This weight management clinic, followed a program which involved educating patients in healthy eating exercise and weight management strategies.
Among the patients included in the study, the drop-out rate was 54% in the group treated by medical management only and 12% in the group treated surgically. These drop-out rates are similar to those reported in other studies.
The report outlines that patients would stick with the program if they received bariatric weight loss surgery at the beginning of the weight management treatment. Though if these patients have a metabolic disorder this style of weight loss treatment will not work and the only treatment and known process for these patients is the HCG weight loss protocol.
