Weight Management Q&A

Why would I need help with weight management?

Magazines and television programs often present achieving and staying at a healthy weight as a simple process – just eat healthily and move more, and you’ll settle into a normal size. 

If you’re overweight or obese, or ever tried a “diet,” you know it’s not that easy. What you eat and how often you move does matter when it comes to achieving a healthy weight, but for a lot of people, there’s more when it comes to successfully losing weight and staying at a healthy size. 

Stress, hormones, and a host of other factors affect your weight and make it difficult to achieve and maintain a healthy size without a little help. 

What are the benefits of a weight management program?

Weight management services help you get to and maintain a healthy weight. Being overweight or obese raises your risk of a number of serious health problems, including: 

  • Heart disease and stroke
  • Sleep apnea
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Asthma
  • Some cancers
  • Kidney disease
  • Sexual dysfunction and fertility problems
  • High cholesterol

Weight management is a critical component in preventive health, which is why the providers at Stoneleigh Medical Group emphasize it as part of their care.

Can a weight management program help me lose weight?

If you’re overweight or obese, the weight management program at Stoneleigh Medical Group can help you achieve a healthier size. The providers customize their recommendations according to your weight goals, current health, schedule, and preferences. 

You also get the benefit of having a dedicated provider who keeps you accountable for your goals. They can help manage any existing health conditions, like diabetes, as you progress through weight loss and adjust medications and your program accordingly. 

If surgery is the best option for you, your provider can help you understand what that entails and the details of the procedure.

A health provider can also offer treatment if you have problems, like a thyroid condition, that make weight loss difficult. Often, treating these problems can make your weight loss journey more successful.
