Weight Loss Q & A
What are the risks associated with obesity?
Obesity alone increases a patient’s risk of developing a myriad of other diseases and conditions, including heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, diabetes, gallbladder disease, cancer, gout, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea, asthma, and other breathing problems. Being overweight doesn’t automatically produce these diseases but substantially increases the risk. While weight loss can significantly decrease risk, losing weight can be challenging without help.
Which weight management services are offered at Wall Street Physicians?
Dr. Carron at Wall Street Physicians provides comprehensive weight loss services, including:
- A personal exercise routine customized for the patient’s schedule, ability, and access to equipment
- Personal meal-planning guidance designed to satisfy the patient’s hunger and cravings while providing the body with the nourishment it needs and limiting foods that don’t add value
- Medication and supplement recommendations for patients who need them
- Mental health services to identify underlying causes of overeating when they exist
- Referral to a specialist when gastric bypass or other weight loss surgery is recommended
How’s appetite addressed?
Many patients who would like to lose weight worry about hunger. An appropriate meal plan includes satisfying portions and options for healthy snacks. Hunger should never accompany a healthy diet.
Some patients suffer from a stomach that’s stretched much larger than it needs to be. In these cases, surgeries or appetite control medications can assist with feelings of hunger and help the patient feel satisfied.
Can patients receive weight management guidance via virtual visit?
Yes. Patients are encouraged to come to the office for their initial consultation, which allows the provider to screen vital signs and identify any risk factors or underlying conditions. After that, follow-up appointments can be completed via virtual visit, allowing patients to continue their care despite busy schedules and other limitations that may prevent them from reporting to the clinic.
