Here at Manhattan Primary Care, a leading NYC doctor Dr. Fathollahi provide comprehensive weight management and weight control programs that are tailor-made to provide you with optimum results. Weight management is often complex, which is why our doctors do not offer a one-size-fits-all program. Instead, our physicians provide individualized programs comprising of nutritional, exercise, and behavioral components.
Being at a healthy weight reduces your risk for health problems. These problems include:
- Heart disease
- Type II diabetes
- High blood pressure
- Sleep apnea
For most people, a healthy weight is defined by their body mass index (BMI), a simple calculation based on a person’s height and weight. Waist size is another reliable indicator of overall health. However, maintaining a healthy weight is only part of the equation, as good nutrition and regular exercise are also critical for good health.
Comprehensive Health Assessment
A comprehensive assessment is necessary to assess your overall health. We will want to check your weight and your height and measure your waistline.
The team of NY top doctors and award-winning primary care physicians we evaluate your medical history, and we may order diagnostic tests or will refer you to other specialists based on this information. Sometimes certain health conditions can make weight management tricky.
Potential conditions include:
- Thyroid disorders
- Insulin resistance
- Adrenal fatigue
Identifying and correcting these disorders could help you on your path to successful weight control.
Your psychological well-being and your mobility are assessed as it’s important to consider the full impact on your overall health. We aim to understand each patient thoroughly so we can determine the reasons why someone may have gained weight and barriers that may affect their ability to lose and manage their weight successfully.
Weight gain may result from overeating or a reduction in metabolic rate, or because of reduced physical activity. Also, there are socio-economic, biological, and psychological factors to consider.
