Washington: Is your doctor fatter than you? Then, you are less likely to get a proper diagnosis of your obesity, researchers say. A new study, published in the journal Obesity, found that overweight and obese physicians who have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 25 or more were less effective at tackling obesity as they appear reluctant to discuss the topic with patients. However, doctors with normal body mass indexes (BMIs) talk to obese patients about weight more often, and are more likely to diagnose patients as obese, found the study.
