What are the benefits of weight loss?

Your weight has a major effect on your physical and emotional well-being. Weight loss offers many benefits, including:

  • Lowering your risk of chronic disease
  • Improving blood pressure, blood glucose, and blood cholesterol numbers
  • Alleviating joint pain
  • Boosting energy and mood
  • Improving sleep

When it comes to weight loss, many people want to lose a lot of weight fast. But you don’t have to lose a significant amount of weight to gain these health benefits. Even losing as little as 5%-10% of your current weight can lead to major health gains.

When should I seek professional help for weight loss?

You should seek professional help for weight loss at Warehouse Primary Care & Specialty Clinic if you want to lose weight and you can’t reach your weight goals following commercial weight loss programs.

The team may also recommend you come in for weight loss help as part of your chronic disease management plan for diabetes, high blood pressure, or arthritis.

People who are obese also benefit from professional medical weight loss. Obesity isn’t a lifestyle choice, but a disease that requires ongoing medical management and care, including medically supervised weight loss.

What can I expect from a medical weight loss program?

You can expect personalized care from the medical weight loss program at Warehouse Primary Care & Specialty Clinic. Most diets fail because they don’t take the most important factor into consideration: you.

Your provider spends time talking to you about your weight and your struggles. They review your diet, exercise habits, and medical history. They perform a physical exam and run on-site lab tests to confirm or rule out a medical condition that might affect your ability to lose weight.

After your evaluation, the team works with you to design a weight loss plan that fits your health needs and goals. Your plan might include:

  • Personalized nutrition plan
  • Exercise program
  • Stress management
  • Weight loss medication
  • Behavioral therapy

Once you start your weight loss program, your provider schedules regular follow-up visits to monitor your progress, provide education, and adjust your plan as needed.
