Weight management means keeping your body weight healthy with regular exercise and a good diet. The scope of a medical weight management practice is to look at your nutrition intake and medical risk factors associated with weight.
Scientific studies show that obesity results from a combination of genetic influences and lifestyle patterns that may lead to serious medical problems, including diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, and osteoarthritis. Our weight management programs are physician-monitored and designed to improve health through sustained weight loss, based on reasonable long-term goals.
