Weight Loss Q & A

Why is weight loss so important?

Weight loss is one of the most effective tools for improving health and well-being. Excess weight puts a severe strain on your body, forcing joints, muscles, and organs to work extra hard. 

Fat doesn’t just gather under your skin, either. It builds up in and around your organs and forms a sticky substance called plaque in your blood vessels that can cause narrowing and blockages. In addition, fat cells are biologically active, producing chemicals that can negatively affect many aspects of health.

All this excess fat is a leading cause of serious health problems such as:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Certain cancers
  • Joint problems
  • Sleep apnea 
  • Gallstones
  • Fatty liver disease

Weight loss can address all of these problems and lift the shadow of obesity from your life. If you lose weight steadily and keep it off, you’ll not only be preventing or improving the many health problems obesity causes, but you’ll feel energized and more positive about your body.

How do I get started with weight loss?

There’s a vast and often baffling amount of information available about how to lose weight, so it can be difficult to know how to approach weight loss. If you feel confused about the best way to lose weight, or you’ve tried before without success, Dr. Diaz can help.

The first step is to make sure you’re fit and well, and address any underlying health problems. Some medical conditions could affect the way you approach weight loss, while others could be preventing you from losing weight. For instance, hypothyroidism affects your metabolism, making your body reluctant to shed weight.

Dr. Diaz runs tests to look for any health problems, measures your hormone levels, and checks your metabolic function at the start of your weight-loss program. She can then prescribe any replacement hormone therapies or other treatments you might need. 

Dr. Diaz keeps a regular check on your health and monitors these measurements throughout your weight-loss program.

How do I succeed with weight loss?

Once you know whether you have any underlying issues affecting your ability to lose weight, Dr. Diaz can create a personalized diet and exercise program for you. In addition to making sure your hormones are properly balanced, she can adjust your nutrition and exercise plans to suit your individual needs. She supports you all the way, so you have the best chance of success.
