Obesity has a huge impact on health and wellbeing. It’s only natural that your doctor plays a role in promoting a healthy body weight and healthy body image.
If a person is overweight or obese, even small amounts of weight loss (5 per cent of bodyweight, for example 5kg for someone that weighs 100kg) can have a range of health benefits such as improved blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugars. Just to name a few.
Making changes to your diet and physical activity can also have health benefits that are independent of weight loss including increased energy, better sleep and reduced risk of depression.
This holistic approach to weight loss is best treated by a GP who can supervise the program from end to end, at every level. Treatment is likely to entail lifestyle change, education, regular exercise and medication if required.
