Weight Management

Weight management is the process of adopting lifestyle modifications to maintain a healthy body weight on the basis of a person’s age, sex and height. Methods of weight management include eating a healthy diet and increasing physical activity levels.

At Youngerself MD, our weight management program focuses on the “why” behind your weight changes. Our medical staff help in educating and guiding you every step of the way. The purpose of the weight management program is to help you achieve and stay at the best weight possible to optimize your quality of life.

 

If you’re not in control of your weight, you may suffer from being malnourished, underweight, overweight or obese.

 

Obesity  has been linked to a number of health problems, including:

  • Osteoarthritis
  • Gallstones
  • Cancer
  • Stroke
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Breathing problems
  • Fatty liver disease

At Youngerself MD we'll take you through a series of exams to see if your weight gain is because of metabolic dysfunction, hormone imbalances, or simply because of lack of exercise. 

Here are some of the benefits you can expect from participating in our weight management program:

  • Effective, safe weight loss
  • Control of your cravings
  • Increased energy
  • End of yo-yo dieting

If you've tried to lose weight for a while, you may have some anxiety about what to expect. It's normal to be nervous before your first appointment.

At your first appointment, your doctor will talk with you about:

  • your weight loss goals,
  • what your day-to-day routine looks like (diet and exercise),
  • how long you've tried to lose weight, and
  • your medical history.

Our goal is to help you find the best treatment so you can lose weight and keep it off in the long-term.

We will talk with you to determine whether you'd benefit from treatments like:

  • simple diet and exercise,
  • stress management,
  • behavioral or mental health therapy,
  • weight loss medications, or
  • more permanent treatments like bariatric or weight-loss surgery.
