Dear Doc... Health Advice from Your Hometown Care Team at WCMH
Weight Loss How can my doctor help?
Response from Dr. Steven Ebers
Many people are looking for ways to improve their health and well-being. One resolution that can have a significant impact on overall health is achieving a healthy weight.
Being at a healthy weight can reduce the risk of numerous health conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancer. It can also improve energy levels, sleep, and mental health.
However, losing weight and maintaining a healthy weight can be challenging. That’s where I can help. As a physician, I have a range of tools and resources at my disposal to support patients in their weight loss journey.
One way I can help is through counseling and lifestyle coaching. I can work with patients to identify behaviors and habits that may be contributing to weight gain, and develop strategies for making healthy changes. This may include advice on nutrition, physical activity, stress management, and more.
I can also prescribe medication when appropriate. Some medications can help with weight loss by decreasing appetite or increasing metabolism. However, it’s important to remember that medication is not a magic solution, and it’s usually most effective when combined with other weight loss strategies such as lifestyle changes.
If you’re looking to lose weight and improve your health, I can help you get started on the right track. Together, we can develop a plan that works for you and your lifestyle, and support you every step of the way. Don’t hesitate to reach out and schedule an appointment to discuss your weight loss goals and how I can help you achieve them.
