Illness/Medical Interventions - Overweight

Medical Evaluation

A child's excess weight puts them at an increased risk for a variety of weight-related medical conditions. Certain medical conditions may also contribute to the child’s increased weight. Therefore, it is important that providers be aware of the possible disorders that contribute to obesity, and the weight-related medical conditions that can be a consequence of obesity.

Referral Worksheet

A child should be referred to a specialist if the required intervention is beyond the providers' scope of care.
