Weight Loss Q & A

Why do I need to lose weight?

Losing weight is essential for your overall wellbeing. You feel better, have more confidence, and may even have more energy if you’re at a healthier weight. But the benefits of weight loss go much deeper. If you lose a moderate amount of weight, such as 5% of your body weight, your risk of the following health issues gradually decreases:

  • Stroke 
  • Hypertension
  • High cholesterol
  • Type 2 diabetes 
  • Kidney disease
  • Musculoskeletal disorders
  • Certain types of cancer

Losing weight can help you lessen your risk of developing these and other serious health issues.

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss with Endoscopic Weight Loss Center of America is a collaborative health care approach. Dr. Blosser talks with you about your overall health and family medical history.

Your provider may gather some labs to determine if you have any underlying issues – like a hormonal imbalance – that could be triggering your weight loss efforts.

Once your provider evaluates you and your weight loss goals, they will determine if you are a candidate for an endoscopic procedure. At the same time, our wellness strategist will provide you with a comprehensive program to help you maximize your goals. This will include a full-body scan and:

  • A detailed protocol to follow after your procedure
  • Virtual wellness and lifestyle coaching
  • In-office weight-checks
  • Personalized attention and fitness strategy
  • Weekly weigh-in visits
  • Fully body scan

Throughout your medical weight loss plan from Endoscopic Weight Loss Center of America (Orbera Balloon Placement, ESG, Stomal Revision), you, of course, lose the excess weight. As if that isn’t enough, you also learn behavioral modifications and lifestyle changes that you can utilize for the rest of your life to keep the weight off.

What causes obesity?

As you may know, having a sedentary lifestyle is known as the leading cause of weight gain. Obesity, however, is about more than a lack of exercise and poor food choices. In many cases, underlying health factors that might be out of your control could be contributing to your weight gain or making it difficult for you to lose weight.

For example, if you inherit certain genetics that impact how your body stores fat and how it’s distributed, your risk of being obese is higher. Obesity is also positively correlated with:

  • Stress 
  • Lack of sleep
  • Hormonal fluctuations 
  • Metabolic disorders
  • Thyroid dysfunction 

 

Occasionally, prescription medications affect your metabolism and can lead to weight gain, too. Because of these underlying issues, obesity management isn’t something you should handle alone. 

  • Are you having difficulty performing work functions?
  • Are you avoiding social activities because of your weight?
  • Do you have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or more?
  • Do you continue to put on weight?

 

Dr. Blosser understands the challenges that overweight and obese patients face. They spend time talking with you about your health and lifestyle and educating you about various treatment solutions that may benefit you. 

Is there an effective treatment for obesity?

Endoscopic Weight Loss Center of America provides the most advanced medical technology to treat obesity – and to help you lose weight and keep it off for good. Depending on your health history and how much excess body weight you have, Dr. Blosser will recommend the right procedure for you. 

What happens if my BMI is too high for an endoscopic procedure?

Don’t worry about it, our wellness program can help you reach the BMI required by the FDA in order for you to get the procedure that better suits your needs.
