Obesity Help

Being obese or overweight, defined as having too much body fat, is more than just a cosmetic concern. Obesity increases your risk of developing a number of diseases and health conditions. That includes increasing your risk of:

• Heart disease
• Diabetes
• Cancer
• High blood pressure
• Stroke
• Liver and gallbladder disease
Sleep apnea and respiratory problems
• Osteoarthritis (a degeneration of cartilage and its underlying bone within a joint)
• Gynecological problems (abnormal menses, infertility)
• Dyslipidemia (for example, high total cholesterol or high levels of triglycerides)

Fortunately, even modest weight loss can reduce or prevent the health problems associated with being obese or overweight. At New York Cardiovascular Associates, our caring doctors understand how hard it can be to successfully lose weight. We use a compassionate, personalized approach to helping patients achieve a healthy weight that is sustainable long-term.

Your doctor will coordinate with other experts in nutrition, exercise, cardiology, and pulmonary medicine to develop a healthy weight loss plan that you will be able to follow and maintain. Instead of setting you up for failure, our trained experts will set you up for success by listening to your needs, understanding your circumstances, and developing a custom, whole-person plan. With New York Cardiovascular Associates’ help, you can lose weight, keep it off, and improve your health and quality of life.
