Maintaining a healthy weight is more than cosmetic. Having too much body fat leads to health conditions like heart disease, diabetes and high blood pressure, as reported by the Mayo Clinic. The good news: even modest weight loss and regular exercise can provide healthier results.
What to do?
- Monitor weight regularly and have yearly exams with your physician.
- Adults with higher concentration of fat in their blood and other known risk factors for cardiovascular and diet-related chronic disease should obtain ongoing diet/nutrition counseling.
- At AIM Health, we offer a Medically Supervised Weight Loss program. Learn more here.
