About obesity and metabolic disorders

Obesity means having too much body fat. It's not a character flaw or lack of will power. It's a complex medical disease that increases the chances of getting other diseases and health problems, such as:

  • Cardiovascular (heart and blood vessel) disease 
  • Certain cancers
  • Dementia
  • Diabetes
  • Dyslipidemia (high cholesterol)
  • Fatty liver

If you have a metabolic disorder, it means your body has trouble turning food into energy. These types of disorders include1:

  • Diabetes
  • Dyslipidemia
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Prediabetes

Many people are affected

Obesity and metabolic disorders like diabetes are among the most serious health problems affecting people in the U.S.2  

  • More than 37 million people in the U.S. have diabetes
  • 1 in 5 people with diabetes don't realize they have it
  • More than 40% of U.S. adults have obesity

We offer new tools and ways of thinking

Our lifestyle and metabolic medicine team will work with you to find out the root cause of unhealthy weight. We'll customize a plan for you based on your unique needs.

  • Getting guidance on healthy eating, including nutritional assessments and education, with a focus on whole foods 
  • Getting guidance on home exercise routines and referrals to community fitness centers  
  • Taking anti-obesity medications, as needed
  • Managing emotional eating and stress
  • Getting enough quality sleep
  • Collaborating with dieticians, mental health counselors and bariatric surgeons
