Weight Management Q & A

Why is it so important to lose weight?

If you’re overweight or obese, you face a wide range of serious health risks, some of which can be life-threatening. Finding a safe and effective way to reach a healthier weight can change the course of your life for the better.

If weight loss were simple or easy, the United States wouldn’t be facing such a crisis when it comes to the effects of obesity on overall health and wellness. Some of the medical issues that are directly linked to obesity include:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Gout
  • Certain types of cancer
  • High blood pressure
  • Sleep disorders

This is nothing near a comprehensive list. Carrying a significant amount of extra weight places a strain on virtually every organ and system within the human body. Finding a way to reach a healthy weight is one of the more powerful things you can do to boost your health and extend the length of your life.

What is medically supervised weight loss?

There is a multitude of weight loss plans and programs available, some of which can offer impressive results. Others make empty promises, and some are downright dangerous. Navigating the available options can feel overwhelming, which is one reason so many men and women turn to a trusted health professional like Evelyn Omoregbee at Healing Vessel Medical Associates LLC for weight loss advice.

Medically supervised weight loss incorporates professional health monitoring with a customized weight loss solution. This is not a one-size-fits-all program to which you have to adapt. This is a program Ms. Omoregbee designs around your specific set of needs, and one that can change according to how your body responds.

What happens during weight loss management?

The first step involves assessing your current state of health and outlining your personal weight loss goals. By completing a thorough exam and health history, Ms. Omoregbee gathers the information needed to create your treatment plan.

She gives you diet and exercise advice tailored to your specific needs. If you have current health concerns, she creates your plan to work around any limitations you may have. Depending on your circumstances, your weight loss program might include supplements, specific diet plans, nutrition counseling, and targeted exercise.
