Weight Management Q & A

What can a Doctor do to Assist Me with Weight Loss?

Numerous health concerns are connected to obesity. Doctors who specialize in weight loss and nutrition will know how to help patients lose weight safely. The doctor can assist patients with organizing a diet and exercise plan which can help them lose the excess weight. Since factors such as the person’s age, medical condition, overall health, and daily schedule can affect weight loss, the doctor will customize a weight management plan to work with the person’s life.

Can Medical Conditions Affect My Weight?

Hormonal imbalances and similar medical conditions can affect how the body processes food and can frequently affect a person’s weight gain or loss. Conditions which can influence weight management include:

  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Cushing’s Disease

If you are diagnosed with a disorder in the endocrine system or a hormonal imbalance, the doctor can treat the issue which would then help you sustain a healthy weight.


What will Treatment Be Like?

To assist patients with losing weight safely, each patient will go through a personal assessment which will help to identify what is causing the weight gain and what types of treatments may be needed to reach weight maintenance goals. A custom-made plan will be crafted and can include possibilities such as:

  • Nutritional recommendations and diets
  • Activity recommendations
  • Medications to address hormonal imbalances
  • Lifestyle alterations


By employing numerous techniques, medical weight loss plans are much more likely to be effective.
