What To Expect:
The initial consult involves a focused medical evaluation for diseases related to obesity and causative factors, along with a physical examination. In addition, a weight history, past diet attempts, social, and psychological factors will be evaluated.
A comprehensive lifestyle approach to weight management is vital due to the potential to address un-diagnosed diabetes, high cholesterol, thyroid disorders, abnormal liver disorders, and sleep apnea. Additional testing may be recommended depending upon medical history and physical findings.
Overall, management of obesity include:
- Behavior Modifications (diet and exercise)
- Meal Plans or Pre-packaged Meal Replacement Plans
- Pharmacotherapy (PCP managed)
