Weight Loss Q & A

How does losing weight benefit your health?

If you’re overweight, reaching and maintaining a healthy weight can drastically improve your physical and mental well-being. Many conditions are worsened by obesity and can be improved by weight loss. These can include:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • High cholesterol
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Respiratory problems

Losing weight can also improve problems with sexual function and depression. And it can simply make you feel better. While reaching your ideal weight is best, losing any amount of weight, even just 5% of your body fat, can result in tremendous health benefits.

Should you talk to your doctor about your weight-loss goals?

When you want to lose weight, it’s important to discuss this process with your doctor. Dr. McDow can review your health history and determine whether you have any underlying conditions that make weight loss more difficult. He may also review your medications, as these too may interfere with your weight loss goals.

If you have ailments that limit your range of motion or mobility, Dr. McDow can help you find the right exercises that encourage weight loss without causing pain or worsening your condition. He can also help you set realistic weight loss goals and discuss the benefits you can expect from losing weight.
