Obesity Management

Being overweight or obese predisposes an individual to many medical problems including diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke, depression and some types of cancer. In India, the frequency of these conditions is increasing at epidemic rates.

While many people have a genetic predisposition to obesity, the multidisciplinary team can identify other causes and monitor for complications. These secondary conditions, which frequently have endocrine causes, can be identified through a careful medical history, physical exam, blood tests, saliva tests and X-rays, if needed.

As part of our Comprehensive Weight Loss Plans, we work closely with patients to develop individualized treatment plans. This includes:

  • Treating secondary causes of obesity, if present
  • Diagnosing and treating complications of obesity, such as diabetes
  • Prescribing diet, exercise and other lifestyle changes
