Weight Loss Treatment Q & A
How does weight loss improve health?
Excess weight can be a burden on many aspects of your health, including your heart, joints, and self-esteem. Although weight loss can seem overwhelming, research shows that losing as little as 5% of your total body weight can bring significant health benefits.
While this small percentage of weight loss may be less than your personal goal, it still decreases your risk for several obesity-related diseases. Research shows that losing weight leads to improvements in various health metrics, such as:
- Blood pressure
- Blood sugar levels
- Cholesterol levels
What health conditions are affected by losing weight?
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, losing weight may reduce your risk for many chronic health conditions, including:
