What are the benefits of a medically supervised weight loss program?

Over 70 percent of Americans are considered overweight or obese. Being overweight is a medical issue that can increase your risk of suffering from:

  • Coronary heart disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Gynecological problems such as infertility
  • Liver and gallbladder disease
  • Cancer (endometrial, breast, and colon)
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Stroke
  • Sleep apnea and respiratory problems
  • Osteoarthritis (a degeneration of cartilage and its underlying bone within a joint)

    With the rising rate of obesity there is an associated increased risk of medical issues. Our medically supervised weight loss program can help mitigate the risks of developing many life-threatening conditions. There are several reasons why people who need to lose weight should seek medical assistance.
