What health benefits do you gain from losing weight?
Although getting a better body shape is great motivation, it’s also important to know that weight loss makes a significant difference in your overall health.
Your heart works harder when you’re overweight, raising your risk of heart disease. Carrying excess weight also stresses your joints and increases your chance of developing osteoarthritis.
Fat cells produce and release hormones and other biochemicals that influence systems throughout your body. All of these issues work together to put you at a high risk for weight-related diseases, such as:
Type 2 diabetes
High blood pressure
Heart disease and stroke
Fatty liver disease
What weight loss services are available?

You’ll learn to set a realistic calorie goal that gets you to your healthy weight. The team at Carley Family Care teach you about nutrition, portion control, and developing a menu, while providing tips on foods to avoid. They also help create an eating plan that you can stick with for the long run.
Staying active burns calories, improves your mood, and contributes to your overall health. The key is to find an exercise program that works for you, incorporates activities you enjoy, and that’s safe for your overall health.
Dr. Carley may conduct blood tests to evaluate levels of blood sugar, hormone imbalances, and other biomarkers affecting your weight. Then he uses this information to create a specific weight loss program for you, which often includes medication.
Several medications are approved by the US Food and Drug Administration to support weight loss. They’re not used alone; they’re included along with your diet and exercise plan.
Weight loss medications effectively boost your weight loss by working several different ways. They may suppress your appetite, reduce cravings, make you feel full, or limit fat absorption.
Depending on your individual plan, Dr. Carley may also recommend body contouring or SculpSure® through the practices’ staff technician.
