How can a medically supervised weight loss program improve your patients’ health?
Individuals with a body weight that is higher than what is considered as a healthy weight for a given height are described as overweight or obese. Current estimates from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show obesity affecting more than 93 million adults in the United States in 2015-2016.
Obesity is a serious health concern because those who suffer from obesity, compared to individuals of a healthy weight, are at an increased risk for health conditions and diseases, including the leading causes of death in the United States – diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and some types of cancer. Other serious health consequences associated with obesity include poorer mental health outcomes, reduced quality of life, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, gallbladder disease, osteoarthritis, and sleep apnea.
Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight can help reduce the risk of and help treat these health consequences from obesity.
