Weight Loss Q & A

Why is weight loss so important?

Many men and women carry a few extra pounds, especially as you grow older. However, too much extra weight can have serious ramifications for your overall health and wellness.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, obesity is a growing problem in America, with more than one-third of adults listed as obese. That takes a toll not only on personal health but on productivity levels and health care costs for the nation as a whole.

Being overweight or obese increases your risk of the following health issues:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Kidney disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Sleep apnea
  • Fatty liver disease

 

This is not a comprehensive list by any measure; being overweight or obese places undue strain on virtually every system within your body.

 

How does weight gain affect wellness?

When you’re carrying extra weight, the increased risk of disease isn’t the only factor that takes a toll on your life. Your overall wellness is also affected, which can be a detriment to your quality of life.

You might feel tired, lethargic, or unable to participate in the things that bring you joy. You may experience anxiety or depression as a result of your weight, or encounter challenges in your social, occupational, and personal connections.

 

How can functional medicine help with weight loss?

At WellCentric Health & Aesthetics you have access to a holistic weight loss approach that provides individualized care. The process begins with a thorough health history and examination. You’ll discuss the efforts you’ve made in the past to lose weight, and share what did and didn’t work for you.

A body composition analysis gives the practice the information needed to create your weight loss goals and also serves as a means of measuring your progress. Your weight loss program includes personalized counseling, education on nutrition and lifestyle modifications, and the support of a dedicated team of compassionate medical professionals.

Your solution might also incorporate customized vitamin injections to boost your results, or medications to address existing health issues while your body heals and adjusts to a healthier weight. The practice monitors all treatment components as you move through the program, making adjustments as needed.

When you’re ready to get started on a weight loss path that leads to improved health and wellness, call or schedule an appointment online with WellCentric Health & Aesthetics in Reno, Nevada, right away.
