Weight Loss Q&A

Why does weight loss have such an impact on my health?

Carrying excess weight for your height and frame can cause extensive harm to your health that weight loss can stop and, very often, reverse. Excess weight significantly increases your risk of health conditions, including:

  • Coronary artery disease (CAD)
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Some cancers
  • Congestive heart failure
  • Carotid artery disease
  • Stroke
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sight loss
  • Kidney disease
  • Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)
  • Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)

Too much weight slows you down and prevents you from leading an active, rewarding life. It leaves you tired and vulnerable to depression and anxiety. Many people develop low self-esteem and avoid going out because they’re unhappy about their weight.

You might also suffer from physical symptoms like backache, plantar fasciitis (heel pain), joint pain, insomnia (trouble sleeping), infections, skin rashes, and unpleasant disorders like intertrigo.

What advantages does medical weight loss offer?

Choosing Broadway Family Practice to support your efforts when losing weight has several key advantages:


Evidence-based knowledge

Medical professionals have the skills to offer advice on effective, safe weight loss. They use methods proven to be safe and successful, with no unhealthy products or fad diets.


Health assessment

Some people experience difficulty losing weight because of underlying health problems like hypothyroidism or polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). Identifying and treating these hormonal disorders significantly improves your chances of successful weight loss.


Ongoing care

Your Broadway Family Practice provider monitors your health regularly when you’re losing weight to reduce the risk of illness or injury and prevent joint and organ strain.


Prescription medication

Only medical professionals can prescribe medications to assist people with weight loss.
