Medical Weight Loss Charlotte NC
Medical weight loss or bariatric medicine is the medical specialty that focuses on the diagnosis and treatment of overweight and obesity and related conditions. Successful obesity treatment can lead to improved overall health and quality of life.
The Obesity Medicine Association defines obesity as “a chronic, relapsing, multi-factorial, neurobehavioral disease, wherein an increase in body fat promotes adipose tissue dysfunction and abnormal fat mass physical forces, resulting in adverse metabolic, bio-mechanical, and psycho-social health consequences.”
What kinds of health problems are linked to overweight and obesity?
Carrying excess weight can increase your risk for many health problems. These may include:
- high blood pressure
- heart disease and strokes
- type 2 diabetes
- sleep apnea
- certain types of cancer
- hormone imbalance
- decreased testosterone
- erectile dysfunction / impotence
- fatty liver
- kidney disease
- memory problems and emotional distress
- problems in pregnancy
The importance of obesity treatment cannot be overstated.
