More than just a number, obesity has a far-ranging negative effect on health. An increase in body fat can lead to other health conditions that have a harmful impact on quality and length of life.

 

  • High blood pressure

  • Diabetes

  • Heart Disease

  • Osteoarthritis/Joint pain

  • Sleep apnea

  • Metabolic syndrome

 

These are just some of the co-morbidities that can develop over time as you maintain an over-abundance of body fat, and unfortunately some of these conditions make it difficult to lose weight…. leading to a vicious cycle of weight gain and poor health.

 

Obesity is also a complex multi-factorial disease with serious physiological, psychological, emotional, social and economic implications. 

 

A combination of factorsall working together—contribute to obesity.  That’s why at KCH our team of providers, nurses, registered dieticians, and exercise physiologists want to work with you to help you find a plan of care that addresses the many reasons why you may struggle with maintaining a healthy weight, and help you reach your individual goals.
