Weight Affects Overall Health
More than 1 in 3 adults are considered overweight. Obesity is widely considered an epidemic, and one of the most significant public health challenges of our time.
People who are overweight or obese are at increased risk for numerous chronic health conditions, including type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, liver disease, sleep disorders, joint disease, asthma, as well as thirteen different types of cancers. Obesity is a significant cause of preventable death.
Obesity is a Medical Condition
The American Medical Association recognizes obesity as a disease. Obesity is not a result of poor food choices or lack of exercise alone. Obesity is a complex disease resulting from an interaction of genetic, biological, behavioral, social, economic, and cultural factors.
We recognize that each individual gains weight for different reasons, and a “one-size-fits-all” approach is unlikely to be successful. The Obesity Medicine physicians and Dietitian with Harbin Clinic Weight Management are here to help you experience the many emotional and physical health benefits of weight loss, as well as cutting back on medications you take.
