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.

Stay tune as in the next blogs we’ll describe healthy strategies to take steps towards a healthier body weight!
For successful, healthy and sustained weight loss we need more than just “a diet”. The first step is the diagnosis. What’s the reason it’s been so hard to lose weight (and so easy to gain!)? It is well known that there are numerous factors that impact your weight: genetics, hormone imbalances, medical and psychological conditions, environmental toxins, activity level, dietary habits, biorhythm distortions, gut microbiota, etc, etc, etc.
Because we are aware of those challenges and factors, our Weight Loss Treatment starts with a comprehensive new patient consultation with Dr. Menucci. The doctor might order some additional tests to complete the assessment and based on that, using the tools of the most recent scientific discoveries for weight management, we’ll design a treatment strategy individualized just for you. The plan can include FDA-approved medicines in addition to detailed education on lifestyle interventions tailored to your specific situation.
Many patients have already benefit from our care! No need to keep waiting, start your journey to a healthier you today!
