Weight Loss Management Q&A

How can I benefit from weight loss management?

Weight loss management isn’t always about fitting into a smaller size and looking a certain way. Losing weight and maintaining a healthy size affect your overall health. 

If you’re among the millions of overweight Americans, you’re at a higher risk of developing certain health conditions. These include: 

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Certain types of cancer
  • Heart disease 
  • Stroke
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Gout
  • Gallbladder disease and gallstones
  • Sleep apnea
  • Infertility

If you already have any of these conditions, getting an expert weight loss management specialist can help ease symptoms. In some cases, the providers at Triad Internal Medicine can reverse conditions like diabetes with dietary changes and weight loss. 

How do exercise and diet fit into weight loss management?

Making dietary changes and becoming more physically active are important parts of your weight management. These steps can be difficult to achieve on your own. There is so much information about the “right” diet and exercise plans available. It can confuse you on which are truly effective and which are simply fads.The providers at Triad Internal Medicine assist you in navigating the weight loss process effectively and help you achieve lasting changes that benefit your health, energy, and confidence for the long term.

What does weight loss management include?

Weight loss can be challenging, but the providers at Triad Internal Medicine have the experience to help you with problems that can arise. Your provider can manage existing chronic conditions and adjust medications and diet programs as you lose weight. 

The providers educate you on smart, dietary changes that can make a real difference in your weight and risk of disease. These nutritional changes can also help you reverse illness and achieve better health. 

Triad Internal Medicine provides guidance on exercise and how it can improve your weight as well as your cardiovascular and respiratory health. They tailor exercise recommendations according to any limitations you may have. 

If you have a health condition that limits your ability to lose weight, your provider can also work with you to treat your underlying issue for successful weight loss.
