Weight Management Q&A

What is weight management?

Weight management is a health service the team at A.L.M.S Community Health Center offers to help you get to a healthy weight. 

Your weight affects your health. Carrying too much body fat increases your risk of developing chronic health problems like diabetes, high blood pressure, and heart disease. 

Despite what the commercial weight loss programs claim, losing weight is hard and keeping it off is even harder. Though diet and exercise are the cornerstones of any good weight loss program, they’re not the only factors influencing your weight.

Your age, sex, and genes may make it harder for you to reach your weight goals. The team at A.L.M.S Community Health Center understands the many factors that affect weight. They customize your weight management program, taking all of these elements into consideration.

Am I a candidate for weight management?

If you’re having a hard time reaching your weight goals, you’re a candidate for weight management at A.L.M.S Community Health Center. The primary care practice specializes in preventive medicine and offers affordable and accessible health care services to all.

Helping you reach your goal weight and stay there may prevent weight-related diseases and complications. It may also help you manage your chronic disease. Weight loss is often recommended for the treatment of health issues like diabetes and high blood pressure.

What can I expect with weight management?

You can expect compassionate and comprehensive care with weight management at A.L.M.S Community Health Center. Before making any recommendations, the team conducts a physical exam, looking for health issues that might impede your weight loss efforts.

They also ask about your usual diet and exercise habits and the types of weight loss programs you’ve tried in the past. After gathering all the necessary information, you and your provider work together to create your weight management program.

Your plan may include:

  • A personalized nutrition program
  • Physical activity recommendations
  • Tips on how to improve sleep
  • Stress management
  • Medication to manage underlying health issues
