Information about the doctoral work:

Obesity is a chronic disease whose prevalence is increasing in many countries globally. Treatment of obesity consists of lifestyle changes in combination with drugs or bariatric surgery. It is difficult to change lifestyle habits and to maintain them long-term, and treatment results are often unsatisfactory.

The purpose of the doctoral work is to evaluate different forms of treatment for people with obesity and to study experiences of those living with obesity before and after treatment.

Methods: Qualitative interview studies, longitudinal observational study and randomized controlled clinical trial.
