If you’re overweight or obese, losing extra weight can be extremely beneficial for your whole-body health. Even dropping 5-10% of your total body weight typically yields significant health benefits, including lower blood pressure, reduced blood cholesterol, and lower blood sugar levels.
Weight loss plays a big role in chronic care management, preventive care, and improving the outcomes when you have a systemic condition like diabetes. MUST Clinic is here to help you unlock the path to weight loss success so you can look and feel better.
At MUST Clinic, you get comprehensive weight management.
Dr. Stallings begins by screening for underlying conditions, including diabetes and thyroid disease. Both diabetes and thyroid disease are endocrine disorders that can affect your weight, and they often occur at the same time.
You’ll also have a cholesterol blood test and body mass index (BMI) measurement. These biometrics are important in goal-setting and diet customization.
Dr. Stallings recommends a treatment plan if you have a chronic disease, and she incorporates your weight loss plan into your approach. Your weight loss plan includes full nutrition support, which consists of customized diet recommendations, food shopping advice, and more.
Active movement, aka exercise, is a great way to speed up your weight loss. It also has benefits for your overall wellness, like lowering your blood pressure, reducing heart disease risk, and preventing type 2 diabetes. After weight loss, exercise is important in maintaining your weight long term.
For many overweight and obese men and women, emotional eating — using unhealthy food for comfort when you’re stressed or sad — is a common issue. Dr. Stallings works with you to address emotional eating. She can help you identify your triggers and change behaviors to take control of your emotional eating.
At MUST Clinic, Dr. Stallings takes a whole-person approach to weight loss because it’s the best way to lay the groundwork for long-term success.
It depends on your specific needs and medical situation. In general, regular weight management appointments are important because they give you the resources and support you need to succeed.
