Weight Loss Q & A

What can my doctor help me lose weight?

When an individual is very overweight it increases the likelihood that they will acquire numerous health conditions including diabetes. With the assistance of a doctor, patients can lose weight in a healthy and safe way. Your Precision Aesthetics physician can help you create a nutritional program in addition to a valuable activity and exercise plan. A doctor will often know the best ways to lose weight depending on the person’s overall health, daily schedule, age, and medical conditions.

How can obesity affect my joints?

Obesity can increase the likelihood of developing arthritis. Osteoarthritis is strongly linked to obesity. This is because the more weight you put on a joint, the more stressed the joint will become and by extension the more likely it will be to wear down and become damaged. But it’s not just the extra weight on joints that’s causing damage. The fat itself also affects arthritis. The tissue is active which means it creates and releases chemicals, many of which increase inflammation. This inflammation usually takes place in the joints. Numerous other types of arthritis are also made worse or more likely when a person is overweight.
