Weight Management Q & A

Why should I be concerned with weight management?

Your size isn’t just a matter of vanity and how you look. Being overweight or obese impacts your health in many ways. Weight management is a preventive health tool and can keep you from developing severe health conditions.

When you’re overweight, you’re at greater risk of developing health problems like: 

  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Peripheral vascular disease
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Arthritis
  • Sleep apnea
  • Asthma
  • High cholesterol and triglycerides
  • Sexual dysfunction and fertility problems

Even minor weight loss dramatically reduces your risk of these chronic conditions. By losing just 5-10% of your current weight, you can see improvements in health markers like blood pressure and cholesterol levels. 

Weight management can feel challenging, but the team at Medhealth Clinical can help.

Why do I need help with weight management?

Maintaining a healthy weight is not easy. Your activity level, emotional health, hormones, current health, and diet all play a role. 

Don’t expect weight management success with a one-size-fits-all plan offered by your local gym or your favorite internet specialist. You benefit from a customized plan that considers any underlying conditions, your schedule, and your preferences. 

The team at Medhealth Clinical can help you manage your environmental situation, manage hormonal imbalances, and take into account genetic factors that influence how your body responds. 

Weight management is a complex issue and isn’t about having strong willpower. You are not a failure if you turn to a medical specialist to help you achieve your best. 

What is involved in a weight-management plan?

A weight management plan includes nutrition recommendations and tips on how to increase physical activity levels. With proper diet and exercise, you can dramatically reduce your risk of developing chronic disease. 

The team at Medhealth Clinical helps you through nutritional counseling and regular check-ins, so you stay accountable. 

If you have a chronic condition, Dr. Garcia and the team help you manage it optimally, so it doesn’t interfere with weight management. If you lose weight, they adjust your treatment plan accordingly.
