Clinical Guidance

Pharmacological Interventions for Management of Obesity

AGA’s clinical guidelines are evidence-based recommendations to help guide your clinical practice decisions based on rigorous systematic reviews of the medical literature. AGA utilizes the Grading of Recommendations Assessment, Development and Evaluation (GRADE) system.

AGA’s Clinical Practice Updates (CPUs) present the current state-of-the-art guidance and include a combination of evidence-based information, and when not available, best consensus opinion.

AGA also develops other clinical guidance from multidisciplinary meetings and programs to help guide your patient care decisions.

Listen as our committee chairs discuss the process for creating AGA guidelines and CPUs.
