Panel urges doctors to screen more for obesity

Two-thirds of American adults are either overweight or obese and some 17 percent of children and teens are obese. Body mass index, or BMI, determines if a person is overweight or obese.
The Food and Drug Administration has approved Belviq, the first new prescription drug for long-term weight loss to enter the U.S. market in over a decade. The agency cleared the pill for adults who are obese or are overweight with at least one medical complication, such as diabetes or high cholesterol.
