Weight Management

In addition to helping you feel and look better, reaching a healthier body weight is good for your overall health and well being. If you are overweight or obese, you have a greater risk of developing many diseases including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and some types of cancer.

Do you want to start losing weight to look better in your clothes, be more comfortable in an airplane seat, and have more self-confidence and energy? Those are all perfect reasons to drop the pounds.

The most important reason is to improve your health. Obesity is the second leading cause of preventable death in the U.S., and it has many causes. Chronic, life-threatening diseases and conditions associated with obesity include:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Stroke
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sleep apnea
  • Gall bladder disease
  • Gout
  • Menstrual irregularities
  • Infertility in women
  • Female cancers: gall bladder, breast, uterus, cervix, ovaries
  • Male cancers: colon, rectum, prostate

Our doctors and staff can help you make important lifestyle changes that lead to better health and a better life through our weight loss programs, coaching, and exercise centers and classes. Click here for information about bariatric surgery at Mercyhealth.
