When Should I See a Doctor for Weight Loss?

How your doctor in Southfield, MI, can help you lose weight

Maintaining a healthy weight is critical to your health. Losing weight isn’t always easy, even with a strict exercise and diet program. Some fad diets and excessive exercise regimens can actually be harmful to your health. Your doctor can help you lose weight safely and effectively with medically assisted weight loss. Dr. Antoine Geffrard at RMS Consultations in Southfield, MI, provides a wide range of medical services, including medically assisted weight loss to help you lose weight.

You should see a doctor for weight loss if:

  • You have an underlying medical condition which can be helped by losing weight
  • You are beginning to feel pain in your joints, back, legs, feet, and other areas of your body
  • You want to look thinner, healthier, and feel better about yourself

When you carry excess weight, it can contribute to many chronic diseases and medical conditions including:

  • Diabetes
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Obesity
  • Arthritis
  • Liver and kidney problems
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease
  • Breathing difficulties and asthma

Excess weight can also contribute to chronic pain all over your body, especially your feet and legs, which have to carry the extra weight. Your back may hurt too, from having to stand up to the stress of a sagging midsection. Extra weight also contributes to joint strain, eventually causing wear-and-tear in your joints.

When you are overweight, you may lose self-esteem and self-confidence, knowing you don’t look your best. You deserve a healthy, slim body, but it can be difficult to achieve. Your doctor can help.

Medically assisted weight loss is supervised by your doctor. A customized weight loss plan will be developed for you, to help you effectively and safely lose weight. Your weight loss plan may include meal plans, exercises, and weight loss and nutrient supplements to help you become healthier as you lose weight.
