Weight Management Program

Treatment.
Many people find that although they initially lose weight with any given diet, they quickly regain the weight after stopping. Because long-term weight reduction is extremely difficult, it is essential to have as much information and support as possible. Depending upon a person's risk factors, Body Mass Index (BMI), and personal preferences, a doctor will suggest a combination of diet, exercise, behavioral modifications and in some cases, drug therapy. Surgery is only considered in treating severe obesity that has not responded to other treatments.
