The new guidelines emphasize the importance of treating obesity in individuals with moderate obesity and co-morbidities. The doctors have graded obesity into four stages for preventive action, taking into account the impact on physical, mental, and metabolic well-being. The guidelines aim to provide expert recommendations and an adaptable algorithm for obesity management in India, considering factors such as patient psychology and long-term outcomes.
