Perspective on treatment of chronic disease
Most chronic diseases are made worse when the patient has excess weight or is obese. Most chronic conditions can be improved through even a modest amount of weight loss.
ReforMedicine offers a non-surgical medical treatment for weight loss. This program begins with a targeted exam and thorough lab tests to determine the best course of treatment. All patients are prescribed an eating plan with grocery store food. Some patients utilize medication to assist in weight loss. Others find that a change in current chronic condition medications is needed and helps facilitate weight loss. Still others uncover underlying conditions that are preventing them from losing weight.
Obesity is a chronic disease and many people are obese or at risk for obesity. Obesity is also connected to many other chronic diseases and conditions including heart disease, arthritis, irritable bowel and digestive problems, migraine, skin problems, diabetes, and so many more.
Focusing on treating obesity with medicine while monitoring any other chronic conditions that are present helps patients feel better, look better, and improves their overall health indicators.
