ACP unveils tools to improve care for patients with prediabetes, gout, obesity, and Alzheimer's
Date:4/10/2013

artnership with the Obesity Action Coalition and funded by VIVUS, Inc., this guidebook and accompanying DVD profiles "success stories" of four formerly obese patients and explains why some people gain excess weight, the risks of having excess weight, and what patients can do about it. Patients

will learn nutrition and fitness tips that will show how to make better food choices and incorporate physical activity. Patients also will learn about medicines and surgical techniques that may be options for those with significant excess weight.

"Make It Happen!: Helpful Ways to Lose Weight"

Designed with input from experts and people who have either lost weight or are trying to lose weight, this guidebook provides valuable information to help patients with the struggle of losing weight and with helpful tips for making healthier choices. Patients will learn how to eat better, move more, sleep well, and stress less.

Like other ACP patient guides, "Make It Happen" includes clear language and photos so that patients will not be intimidated by complex information and impersonal graphics. The guide suggests small steps patients can take as well as helping patients develop their own achievable action plans.
