Excess body weight puts patients at increased risk of a myriad of conditions and diseases including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Dr. Cathy Carron provides weight loss services and practical, real-life solutions for patients in the Financial District area at her practice, Wall Street Physicians in New York City.
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.
Dr. Carron at Wall Street Physicians provides comprehensive weight loss services, including:
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.
