Dr Holm is an inspiring, energetic and eye-opening lecturer with insight and great knowledge of growth, development, nutrition, activity, well-being, upbringing and health.
Jens-Christian Holm has initiated The Children’s Obesity Clinic at the Department of Paediatrics at Holbæk University Hospital, The Danish Childhood Obesity Biobank and The Dr Holm Group. The HOLBAEK-model has demonstrated results in which 65-85 % of patients reduce their degree of overweight and obesity-related complications and is currently being spread to other children's departments and municipal clinics as well as abroad.
The treatment model is based on the insights that 1. obesity is a chronic disease 2. that is regulated by a highly effective hormone system that aims to maintain and preserve the fat mass in the body, and 3. a fundamentally new health pedagogy. By 2017, 8 municipalities reported that 74% of the children and adolescents with obesity reduced their degree of obesity, while another Paediatric Department similarly reported that 75% of the children and adolescents had decreased their degree of obesity, illustrating that both the treatment model and the course training works and is well implemented in various settings. Dr Holm has been regularly quoted in the media and has participated in several program series on national television channels.
