Obesity & Weight Management
Our team of doctors uses evidence-based treatment of obesity, we believe that the main driver of obesity is genetic and that the body defends weight vigorously. Following weight loss, energy expenditure falls and hunger increases, leading to weight regain. In our program we use a proven method of weight loss and we assist our patients to maintain weight loss with lifestyle changes and when needed, medication to suppress hunger.
Metabolic syndrome is a cluster of cardiovascular risk factors including central obesity, hypertension and glucose intolerance or diabetes. These conditions are linked by insulin resistance caused by obesity. Thus, when we treat obesity we also treat metabolic syndrome.
