Pledge for National Obesity Care week and more…

During National Obesity Care week we are called to advocate for education and improve access to affordable and comprehensive care for patients suffering for this chronic condition.

Thinking of Obesity as a chronic disease helps to put things on the right perspective. As any other chronic condition, having a high BMI, requires professional care. It requires a long-term relationship with a healthcare provider that can lead, guide, educate, provide evidence-based strategies to overcome this disease.

Research has shown that even as little as 3 to 5% of weight loss is associated with significant improvements in health parameters, such as improved glycemic control, blood pressure reduction and lower cholesterol levels.
