Weight Loss Treatment

Why should I try to reach a healthy weight?

When you’ve decided you want to lose weight and get to a healthy size, the practice of Creekside Family Practice is available to help. 

Losing weight can improve your self-esteem as well as your overall health. Being at a healthy weight reduces your risk of developing certain chronic conditions, too. These include:

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Infertility
  • Sleep apnea
  • Arthritis
  • Asthma
  • Depression

Carrying too much extra weight also puts undue stress on your joints, muscles, and organs. Everyday activities can become more difficult; losing excess weight can help you improve your overall quality of life.

Why is medical support for weight loss helpful?

You may want to lose weight and realize that a more healthful diet and increased exercise are good for you, but putting these actions into practice is challenging. 

At Creekside Family Practice, Dr. Qureshi provides you with the education, support and guidance necessary to get you real, life-changing weight loss results.

The weight loss support offered by Creekside Family Practice is based on years of medical practice and knowledge from multiple medical disciplines and scores of medical studies. 

It’s multifaceted and helps get to the core reasons of why you’re overweight, so you can address them successfully.

Medical weight loss programs also rule out medical problems that could be causing you to gain excess pounds, such as a thyroid condition or other hormone issues. 

The team gives you a sense of accountability, too, and can manage any medical problems that are associated with your overweight status, such as Type 2 diabetes or hypertension.

What is involved in the weight loss program?

Dr. Qureshi knows that being overweight isn’t just due to a lack of willpower. It can occur due to lifestyle habits, genetics, age, and chronic conditions. Hormone imbalances can also lead to unwanted weight gain.

Dr. Qureshi does a comprehensive blood screening to rule out medical reasons for your weight gain. He may offer hormone supplementation with bioidentical hormones; vitamins and supplements to optimize your nutritional intake while you cut calories; and give you guidance on lifestyle changes.
