Weight Loss Q&A

Why is weight loss important to my health?

If you have excess weight for your height and body type, it can cause widespread harm to your organs and tissues, so weight loss can significantly improve your health. The more overweight you are, the higher your risk of serious health problems, including:

  • Coronary artery disease (CAD)
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Carotid artery disease and stroke
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Some cancers
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)
  • Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)
  • Kidney disease

Excess body weight makes it difficult to stay active, leaving you tired and frustrated. You might develop backache, joint pain, conditions like plantar fasciitis (heel pain), and have trouble sleeping. You’re more likely to get infections and skin rashes, including unpleasant conditions like intertrigo.

Many people with weight challenges have low self-esteem and are more vulnerable to depression and anxiety.

Why should I see my primary care provider for weight loss help?

Losing weight is something most people find challenging. Many commercials claim to offer fast, easy weight-loss solutions, but in reality, there are no easy fixes, and it takes commitment and effort to succeed. If you’re trying to lose weight, the support of the Primary Medical Physicians, LLC team is invaluable.

First, they complete a physical exam, assessing you for underlying conditions that could affect your ability to lose weight, such as hypothyroidism and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Treating these hormonal conditions can significantly improve your chances of successful, sustainable weight loss.

The team also monitors your health throughout your weight-loss program. This reduces the likelihood of illnesses or injuries and ensures you don’t strain your joints, heart, and other organs.

If you’ve tried losing weight without success, or you need to slim down but don’t know how to begin, the Primary Medical Physicians, LLC team provides the expert care and compassionate support you need.

What will be in my weight-loss program?

Your weight-loss program combines proven approaches to losing weight personalized to your needs. Your program might include:

  • Nutrition counseling
  • Meal planning
  • An exercise program
  • Stress management
  • Behavioral therapy
  • Appetite-suppressant medication
  • Vitamin and mineral supplements
  • Intravenous (IV) therapy

Your provider schedules regular meetings to check your progress, address any issues, adjust your weight-loss program, and ensure you stay healthy.
