Weight Loss Q & A

Why is weight loss important?

Dr. Yang is an internal medicine physician who believes in the power of prevention. Carrying excess body weight increases your risk of many chronic conditions, including:

  • Gallbladder disease
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Stroke
  • Sleep apnea
  • Body pain

Being overweight and obese also increases your mortality and may decrease your quality of life. By offering a physician-supervised weight-loss plan, Dr. Yang helps prevent these conditions from developing. 

If you already suffer from a chronic disease, weight loss may reverse the condition or significantly improve your symptoms.

Weight loss also benefits your mental and emotional health, giving you a boost in self-esteem and self-confidence that may lead to new relationships, a new career, or new hobbies.

 

What can I expect from a medical weight-loss program?

When it comes to losing weight, there is no shortage of options. However, most commercial weight-loss plans leave out one of the most important factors when it comes to losing weight and keeping it off you. 

The medical weight-loss program at BY Wound Care Internal Medicine is designed specifically for you, taking into consideration your health, lifestyle, weight goals, and barriers that affect your weight-loss efforts. Your weight-loss plan may include:

  • Personalized diet plan
  • Behavioral modification tools
  • An exercise program that fits your fitness level

While on the program, Dr. Yang monitors your weight and progress and makes adjustments to your plan as needed to help you succeed. He also helps you navigate through any of the obstacles you face during your weight-loss journey.

Dr. Yang’s weight-loss plan isn't designed to help you lose weight quickly or meant to be a temporary diet. It’s designed to help you create new eating and lifestyle habits that support continued weight maintenance and good health. 

 

What happens after I lose weight?

After you lose weight, Dr. Yang continues to monitor you and your health based on your personal needs. He also provides encouragement and reinforcement of your diet and lifestyle to help you stay on track. 

When it comes to weight loss, you shouldn’t have to do it on your own. For professional help from a compassionate and caring physician, call BY Wound Care Internal Medicine or request an appointment online today.
