METANU CENTER MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS
Obesity is a complex and multifactorial disease with multiple signals influencing the brain and appetite. Studies have shown that many obesity-related conditions improve with a 5-10% weight loss. Lower cholesterol, lower blood pressure, better blood sugar control, improved sleep apnea, and reduction of inflammation are all benefits obtained with a 5-10% weight loss.
For example, someone who is 200 lbs would just need to lose 10-20 lbs to receive these health benefits, and reduce their risk of illness, such as heart disease or diabetes.
Medical weight loss is weight management under the care of a medical provider based on scientific principles that target the root causes of obesity and weight gain to achieve and sustain a healthy weight in the long-term.
At METANU, our personalized, multidisciplinary weight loss program provides diet and lifestyle changes to support your unique weight loss issues. Our physician, who is board certified in obesity and nutrition, listens carefully to your health concerns, thoroughly reviews your medical history and assesses your blood work and vitamin and mineral levels. She then works closely with you to develop an effective, doable treatment plan, suggesting specific lifestyle modifications to optimize your wellness.
