Weight Loss Q & A

Why should I consider weight loss?

Being overweight or obese can increase your risk for a wide range of chronic diseases, including:

  • Stroke
  • Arthritis
  • Heart disease
  • High cholesterol
  • Type 2 diabetes or prediabetes
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Certain types of cancer
  • Sleep apnea and other sleep disorders

Your weight can also play a role in your mental health and increase your risk factors for conditions like anxiety and depression.

Losing even a small amount of weight takes the pressure off your organs and joints. Achieving a healthy body weight can also alleviate persistent pain, boost your energy levels, and improve your mental clarity.

When should I schedule a weight-loss consultation?

You should schedule a consultation for weight loss at the office of Nancy Feiwel, MD, if you’re not able to lose weight on your own despite following a healthy diet and exercise plan.
