Metabolic Weight Loss
Obesity is a disease that occurs when a person weighs too much for their health. Progression of obesity can affect multiple organ systems, produce health complications and significantly reduce the quality of a person’s life.
Obesity is measured by looking at body mass index (BMI). If your BMI is between 25 and 29.9, then you’re considered overweight, and if it’s above 30, you’re considered obese.

Weight gain is not only related to the amount of food you eat but is the result of a combination of factors, including genetics, changes in metabolic activity, illness, eating or exercise habits, daily routines that don’t fit your natural clock (working overnight), and stress.
An evaluation can help you determine the possible metabolic and hormonal sources of your weight gain or weight regain following weight loss. It may include:
- Complete medical history and physical exam
- Review of nutritional and lifestyle habits
- Comprehensive hormonal testing
- Assessments of daily physical activity and individual energy expenditure
- Consultations with physicians specializing in obesity medicine
We are aware that patients with obesity can also suffer from other medical conditions. We address your specific needs to ensure the best outcomes. Other conditions include:
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Lipodema and lymphadema
- Fatty liver
- Sleep apnea
- Joint, skin and gynecological problems
