Over my career in medicine, I have come to recognize obesity is a complex health issue to address. “Obesity results from a combination of causes and contributing factors, including individual factors such as behavior and genetics.
Behaviors can include dietary patterns, physical activity, inactivity, medication use, and other exposures. Obesity is a serious concern because it is associated with poorer mental health outcomes, reduced quality of life, and the leading causes of death in the U.S and worldwide, including diabetes, heart disease, stroke and some types of cancer.”1 In fact, it can lead to many serious health-related problems that I see every day; high blood pressure, high cholesterol even sleep apnea to name a few.
The good news, often these serious health conditions can be prevented by weight control. For long-lasting results consult your physician.
