Physician Monitored Weight-loss Program
About one-third (33.8%) of adults in the United States are obese, nearly double the obese population just 25 years ago, making obesity one of the most prevalent disorders of the 21st century.1
The extra weight associated with obesity can cause a multitude of adverse side effects on the body, including dramatically increasing the risk of developing type 2 diabetes and high blood pressure. Often, those with obesity suffer more than one health effect, creating a situation that can shorten life span and negatively impact quality of life. Obesity also has financial implications, and obesity-related medical costs include sick-leave, loss in productivity, and excess healthcare costs.At CLH Medical Clinic we have developed a three pronged approach to tackle this issue.
