[Correspondence] Obesity management in primary care

Obesity is a growing public health concern that might be neglected by primary care providers. In one study, 59% of patients with morbid obesity had no record of weight management advice in their primary care records over 7 years.1 The study in The Lancet by Paul Aveyard and colleagues2 that explores the role of brief interventions for obesity in primary care is welcome. Net weight loss following their intervention was 1·4 kg at 12 months. Systematic reviews of randomised trials conducted in primary care, which were not discussed by Aveyard and colleagues, reveal very similar findings.
