Weight Loss Q&A

How does weight loss protect my health?

Most people lose weight to improve their appearance, which is a great goal, but there are also crucial health reasons for dropping excess pounds.

The more weight you gain, the more pressure you place on your joints, and that leads to a higher chance of osteoarthritis. Additionally, fat cells release chemicals that cause body-wide inflammation and increase your risk of developing serious diseases, including:

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Liver disease
  • Kidney disease

Being overweight also raises your risk for 13 types of cancer, including cancer of the uterus, esophagus, stomach, kidneys, breast, and colon.

What are the benefits of physician-supervised weight loss?

Weight loss isn’t as easy as limiting your diet (no matter what fad diets may claim). Watching your calories and getting enough exercise are the foundation for losing weight, but you may have other issues that sabotage your efforts.

Your provider at Leading MDs helps you reach your weight-loss goals by:

Diagnosing and treating physical roadblocks

You may have a hormone imbalance or nutritional deficiency that interferes with successful weight loss. For example, some hormone imbalances push your body to regain weight, making you so hungry it’s hard to avoid overeating.

You may also have a chronic health condition that should be considered when planning your diet. Physician-supervised weight loss begins with a thorough exam that identifies and treats issues affecting your weight and health.

Offering support

People who have a support system have better and longer-lasting weight-loss success. Your provider holds you accountable and encourages you when you struggle to stick with your plan.

What services support my weight loss?

Each person’s weight-loss plan is individualized to meet their unique lifestyle, goals, and overall health. However, the essential weight-loss services available at Leading MDs include:

  • Nutrition counseling
  • Meal planning
  • Exercise recommendations
  • Dietary supplements
  • Stress management
  • Behavioral modification
  • Prescription weight-loss medications

Behavioral modification helps you identify and change the ingrained habits that lead to overeating. Your provider may recommend one of several prescription medications, depending on whether you need to reduce cravings, control your appetite, or want something that helps you feel full with less food.

You can achieve success with the weight-loss program at Leading MDs. Call the office or use online booking to schedule an in-person or telemedicine consultation.
