In recent years, medical journals and consumer publications alike have been hashing out the controversy about salt consumption and its effects on an array of medical conditions, primarily high blood pressure and heart disease, but also osteoporosis, kidney stones and kidney disease, and obesity.
In 2011, the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) Board of Directors declared obesity a disease state. And in 2013, the American Medical Association (AMA) agreed, approving an AACE-sponsored resolution on the floor of its House of Delegates. While many understood this to be a pivotal moment in the battle to curtail and reduce historic obesity rates, the question then heard most often was, “What happens next?”
The position statement is the outgrowth of AACE/ACE’s March 2014 AACE/ACE Consensus Conference on Obesity: Building an Evidence Base for Comprehensive Action, which convened in Washington, D.C. to identify the myriad of issues surrounding the obesity epidemic and generate a meaningful, medically actionable and economically viable model for diagnosis and treatment of obesity as a disease state.
