Weight Management Q & A
Why should I consider weight management?
Overweight and obesity increase your risk of developing several chronic health conditions. You should consider the medically supervised weight management services Dr. Brockenbrough offers to help you lose weight safely and effectively if you can’t do it on your own.
By losing weight, you can reduce your risk of developing conditions like:
- Heart attack
- Type 2 diabetes
- Kidney disease
- Fatty liver disease
Excessive weight puts too much pressure on your joints, leading to continual pain and degenerative diseases like osteoarthritis, and if you're obese, you have an increased risk of heart disease.
Dr. Brockenbrough’s weight management services can help you stay physically active and prevent heart attack and sudden death.
What’s involved in weight management?
To successfully achieve your weight loss goals, Dr. Brockenbrough starts with a thorough evaluation of your personal and family medical histories, your lifestyle, and your eating habits.
Based on this information, she creates a healthy eating plan that helps you steadily lose weight. By getting to know your specific health needs, she helps you customize a diet plan that provides full nutrition without empty calories.
Dr. Brockenbrough also performs a coronary CT angiogram prior to having you start a new exercise regimen. She recommends exercises you can do at home to increase your strength, improve your flexibility, and support long-term weight loss.
You can expect to check in with Dr. Brockenbrough regularly so that she can track your weight loss success and help you with setting new weight loss goals.
What are the benefits of weight management?
By including Dr. Brockenbrough on your weight loss journey, you might find it easier to achieve your weight loss goals and maintain them.
Dr. Brockenbrough focuses on your specific needs, current health, and medical background to create your weight loss plan. She also holds you accountable during routine weigh-ins and health checkups.
If your weight loss begins to level off, making it more difficult for you to continue losing weight, Dr. Brockenbrough can change your weight management plan. She can offer ways to fire up your metabolism and help you reach a healthy body weight.
You also learn how to make gradual changes to your life and diet, so you’re more likely to make them a part of your daily life. This helps you maintain a healthy weight and reduces your risk for chronic illness and pain.
