How can weight loss treatment enhance my health and wellness?

Extensive research shows that people who are overweight or obese have an elevated risk of numerous health conditions. Some of the issues that you can face if you are well beyond a healthy weight include:


  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Dementia
  • Sleep apnea
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sexual dysfunction


This is far from a comprehensive list. Virtually every organ and system in your body is negatively affected when you are overweight or obese. Weight loss treatment can help you move closer to a healthy weight, reducing the risk of these serious health issues. 

What happens during weight loss treatment?

The team at Livingspring Family Medical Center offers medical weight loss services that are customized to meet each individual’s unique set of needs. In some cases, medications play a role in that process. 


There are a variety of medications to choose from. Some help you lose weight by controlling your appetite, giving you the boost you need to incorporate healthier meals into your daily routines. 


Others work by improving the way your body metabolizes food into energy. If you have diabetes, medications can help manage your blood glucose while also helping you lose weight. 


Your provider tracks your progress and is here to adjust your treatment plan as needed. You’ll also explore lifestyle modifications to help you improve your daily diet and incorporate more physical activity into your routine. 

How long will I need to remain in weight loss treatment?

Everyone has a unique experience when it comes to weight management. In general, people usually need more support in the early stages of the process. It isn’t easy to change long-held beliefs and habits, and knowing where to turn for medically backed guidance is helpful. 


Your weight loss treatment path is shaped by a number of factors, including how much weight you need to lose and any chronic health conditions you may have. When you come in for your initial consultation, your practitioner will discuss your needs and give you an overview of treatment timelines.
