Medical Weight Loss Q & A

Am I overweight or obese?

Complex factors influence body weight, from genetics and overall health to diet and exercise. Being overweight or obese is more than just a cosmetic concern; it’s a serious medical condition that impacts your health in a variety of ways.

Body mass index (BMI) is a medical measurement to determine if you’re carrying extra weight based on your height. In general, you’re at a healthy weight if your BMI is between 18.5-24.9. You’re overweight if your BMI is 25-29.9, and obese if it’s 30 or higher.

Obesity puts increased strain on your body, making your heart, organs, and more work harder. It’s linked to health complications like:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Heart disease
  • Arthritis
  • Sleep apnea
  • Infertility

Losing weight can make a significant difference for your health, but losing weight and keeping it off long-term isn't easy. That’s where medical weight loss at Mercy Family Clinic comes in.

What is medical weight loss?

Being obese can compromise your health and your quality of life. The causes of obesity vary greatly, and finding a weight loss solution that works is often challenging.

Many people attempt to lose weight on their own with the help of fad diets and trendy exercise plans, but those methods can quickly fail.

Medical weight loss is a strategic approach to losing weight and improving health. The program takes every element of weight management and customizes it to fit your unique needs.

Medical weight loss programs can include exercise, diet and nutrition, supplements, counseling, health monitoring, and more.

Mercy Family Clinic’s medical weight loss program gives you the expertise, knowledge, and support that you need to achieve lasting weight loss.
