Weight Loss Q&A

What are the health risks of being overweight or obese?

Few things can affect your health more significantly than carrying a significant amount of extra weight. It’s difficult to overstate the dangers of being overweight or obese. 

Some of the health risks that increase when you’re carrying extra pounds includes:

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Kidney disease
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Depression
  • Sleep apnea
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Many forms of cancer
  • Arthritis

These are just a few of the health conditions that can develop from being overweight or obese. 

Why am I struggling to lose weight?

There are numerous factors that make it difficult to lose weight and maintain those results. In many ways, the modern American food supply system is partly responsible. Fast food is readily available nearly around the clock, and grocery stores are filled with highly processed food items, often with confusing labeling. 


Our lifestyles are also part of the problem. More time spent in front of screens at school, at home, and for entertainment means less time to spend getting fresh air and exercise. High stress and poor sleep quality can also make it hard for your body to maintain a healthy weight. 

How is medically supervised weight loss different?


If you’re like most people, you’ve probably tried various diet and exercise plans in an effort to lose weight. You might even have achieved a degree of success, only to find much or all of the weight returning as soon as you discontinue your diet or exercise plan. 


Medically supervised weight loss offers a path to a healthier weight without reliance on fad diets or extreme exercise plans. The focus remains on your health, and on helping you push your limits and challenge your body without placing you at risk of harm. 


Everyone has a unique set of health needs, and medically supervised weight loss honors those differences. Your weight loss plan is shaped around your specific strengths and challenges. That plan might include weight loss medications, customized nutrition plans, and assistance in finding ways to incorporate more activity into your lifestyle. 


If you’re ready to start a new approach to losing weight and maintaining those results, call the office to schedule a visit. Online booking is also available, and telehealth visits allow you to connect with your provider as you move through your weight loss journey.
