The Truth About Weight: The cycle can be broken
Weight loss requires patience. Americans spend millions on diets, surgical procedures, medications, and fitness programs, but healthcare providers say there’s no quick fix for obesity. Someone with a body mass index of 30+ is considered to have obesity. 57 medical conditions, including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, osteoarthritis, and sleep apnea, are linked to the condition — but it takes more than just diet and exercise to help control it.
Finding the appropriate, qualified healthcare provider who understands the disease is crucial. They can help the person with obesity develop a tailored plan. Dr. Deborah Horn, Medical Director of the Center for Obesity Medicine and Metabolic Performance at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston Medical School, explains the science behind weight loss, how our metabolism and hormones play a role and the solutions, including lifestyle changes, prescription medicines, and surgery available for people with obesity.
