Weight Loss Q & A

Why is weight loss important?

Your weight plays a role in your overall health and long-term wellness. Being overweight or obese can increase your risk for health issues like:

  • Stroke
  • Arthritis
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Coronary artery disease
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues

You may also be prone to chronic pain, disability, and a lower quality of life because of weight challenges. Those who are severely obese may be at increased risk for premature death.

When should I consider medically supervised weight loss?

By losing even a small amount of weight, you can significantly improve your health. However, when you have a lot of weight to lose, a chronic illness, or mobility issues, losing weight on your own can be difficult.

Rajan Medical Group offers physician-guided weight-loss services that help you achieve a healthy body weight. You should schedule a weight-loss consultation if you can’t seem to lose weight with a healthy diet and regular exercise or if you’re not sure how to start your weight-loss journey.

Dr. Thiagarajan takes your overall health and medical history into consideration when designing your weight-loss plan. He can also address age-related challenges that make weight loss more difficult as you get older.

What is involved in weight loss?

To support healthy, safe weight loss, Dr. Thiagarajan helps you set reasonable milestones toward your goals. He designs a plan that includes:

  • Diet improvements
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Daily exercise routine
  • Stress reduction techniques

Based on your unique weight-loss goals and your overall health, Dr. Thiagarajan can also suggest lifestyle changes you can make so that you can maintain your weight-loss results in the long term.

If you have a chronic disease or physical limitations, Dr. Thiagarajan helps you modify your plan, so you can safely participate in your weight-loss program. He also offers chronic disease management services to address underlying diseases or disorders.

You can expect to schedule regular follow-up visits in the office for weight checks. Dr. Thiagarajan can also meet with you through the online telehealth platform to monitor your progress and adjust your weight-loss plan as you achieve each goal.
