A healthy life:

Obesity is of great concern for care providers and patients alike.  Obesity is tied to a multitude of medical problems, including diabetes, heart disease, cancer and arthritis, as well as can worsen other issues like asthma and COPD.  New research has demonstrated a strong causal relationship between BMI and heart disease, high blood pressure and type 2 diabetes.  In fact, according to this large study of 120,000 individuals, for every increase of 4.8 BMI points, the risk for heart disease increases by 35%, for high blood pressure by 64%, and for type 2 diabetes by 153%.  Those are astounding findings! 

For those suffering from obesity, achieving and maintaining a 5% weight loss can lower blood pressure, improve cholesterol and lipid levels, and help maintain optimal blood glucose. Even a 3% weight loss reduces your risk for type 2 diabetes. The American Heart Association recommends obese patients take part in a weight loss program monitored by a practitioner for at least six months, with frequent follow-up 2-3 times per month.  Palm Valley Primary Care is here to help you incorporate healthy lifestyle habits into your daily routine that are sustainable and result in more energy to do the things that make you happy.
