Medical Weight Loss Q & A

What are the health risks of being overweight or obese?

Carrying a significant amount of excess weight is incredibly dangerous. Researchers have identified a vast range of health problems that are worsened or caused by being overweight or obese. 

Some examples include:

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Kidney disease
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Fertility problems
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Fatty liver disease

This is far from a comprehensive list. Being overweight or obese harms virtually every organ and system in your body. 

Why is it so hard to lose weight and maintain the results?

Weight loss is more than a simple formula of calories in and calories out. Everyone has a unique biochemical makeup that determines how effectively they convert food into energy. For some, weight loss is a challenge that far exceeds matters of willpower. 

The modern American diet also shares a portion of the blame. Fast food is available on virtually every corner in some cities, and highly processed foods line grocery store shelves. Confusing labels and bogus health claims further complicate matters. 

Americans are also far more sedentary than they were a few decades ago. More time spent in front of screens at home and work, less time outdoors, and higher stress levels all contribute to weight gain. 

How is medical weight loss different?

If you’re like most, you’ve probably tried many different weight loss programs and diets. You may have even had some success, only to see the pounds come right back when you ended the program. 

That’s because many fad diets and extreme exercise plans are impossible to sustain over the long term. Medical weight loss takes a different approach and places your health at the center of the process. 

At ReViva Wellness Center, Dr. Orna teaches you how to make meaningful lifestyle changes that move you closer to a healthy weight. More importantly, those changes are sustainable and can become part of your daily routines. 

During a medical weight loss program, you have access to:

  • Nutritional counseling
  • Advice on how to get the right amount of exercise
  • Guidance on how supplements can help you reach your goals

ReViva Wellness Center even offers IV therapy, with options that can enhance your weight loss journey and keep you energized. Dr. Orna also checks your hormone levels, and if an imbalance is present, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can help support your weight loss. Additionally, Dr. Orna can provide prescriptions, if necessary, to aid in your weight loss goals.

When you’re ready to make a lasting change, call ReViva Wellness Center to set up a personalized consultation. Online scheduling is available, or you are always welcome to call the office to book an appointment.
