Obesity Management Q&A

What are the health risks of being overweight or obese?

It’s difficult to overstate the dangers of carrying excess weight. Virtually carrying too many pounds on your body negatively affects every organ and system within your body.

Some of the health issues researchers clearly link to being overweight or obese include:

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Aneurysm
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Cognitive challenges
  • Kidney disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Hypertension

These are just some of the health risks that increase when you exceed a healthy weight. In many instances, the heavier you are, the higher your risk level.

What is obesity management? 

Obesity management is a health service focused on assisting you as you move closer to a healthy weight. It’s a highly personalized approach that begins with a thorough assessment of your current health and wellness.

Your provider then creates a customized weight loss plan that delivers results without placing your body under undue strain. Emphasis is placed on incorporating sustainable lifestyle changes that yield results over time. 

This is not an approach that relies on fad diets or extreme exercise plans. Obesity management may include medication to help you move closer to your goals, but drug therapy is never the only treatment option.

When should I decide to move forward with obesity management?

The decision to partner with a health professional for obesity management is a highly personalized choice. Many people come in for care after receiving a chronic health diagnosis. For others, medical weight loss is a welcome change of pace after years of trying to manage their weight on their own. 

You can embark on obesity management on your own or with a friend or loved one. No matter what brings you in for care, rest assured you have the full guidance and support of the Center of Advanced Wellness team as you move through your weight loss journey. 

There is no specific health marker or number on the scale that should prompt you to seek out obesity management support. If you’re ready to try a different approach to weight loss and overall health, click on the online scheduling page or call today to make an appointment.
