Weight Loss Q&A

Why is weight loss important?

Several studies link extra weight with increased health risks. Maintaining a healthy weight helps prevent additional medical conditions that may have long-lasting effects.

Some concerns attributed to excess weight gain include:

  • Type-2 diabetes
  • Heart failure
  • High blood pressure
  • Retinopathy and loss of vision
  • Decreased mobility
  • Sleep apnea
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Fatty liver disease

Weight loss isn’t right for everyone, especially if you’re already at a healthy weight. The experts at the Nowata, Oklahoma, office can help determine if a weight loss program is right for you.

What are the benefits of weight loss?

If you’re currently overweight or experiencing obesity, weight loss can positively impact your life. People with a healthy weight typically notice an increase in energy and motivation. Maintaining a healthy weight also prevents diseases associated with obesity, like diabetes and kidney failure. 

People that frequently practice healthy weight maintenance techniques report improved mobility, fewer instances of pain, better sleep quality, and greater self-confidence.

Is weight loss just a diet plan?

While calorie intake versus calorie output is an important component of weight loss, maintaining a healthy weight requires changes throughout all aspects of life. Weight loss programs often include diet adjustments to better fit your body’s caloric needs.

However, successful weight loss programs also include physical activity, stress management, adequate sleep, and a focus on your mental and behavioral health. People that shed weight and keep it off successfully do so by implementing small lifestyle changes over time.

Losing weight and changing your habits isn’t easy, but the experts at the Nowata, Oklahoma, office offer experienced and caring support. They’ll create a custom treatment that allows you to apply incremental lifestyle changes over time.

How do I know if I should lose weight?

There isn’t a one-size-fits-all when it comes to weight. A healthy weight on one person can look completely different on someone else. 

When you schedule an appointment with the specialists at the Nowata or South Coffeyville, Oklahoma, offices, they will review your medical history and perform a physical exam to monitor your height and weight. This allows the team insight into what a healthy weight range can be for you.

This information isn’t taken at face value, however. The team will also assess your unique health conditions before creating your unique weight loss plan.
