Treatment for Obesity-Related Conditions
Excess weight can put your body at a higher risk for a wide variety of health conditions. Obese individuals are prone to digestive, cardiovascular, circulatory, respiratory, reproductive and joint/spine health disorders. Danny Shouhed, M.D. and our team offer treatment for obesity, as well as treatment for obesity-related conditions, at our medical clinic in Los Angeles.
Our obesity treatment is not only focused on losing weight. While better health may begin with embarking on medical weight loss treatment, there are many other conditions that must be addressed to improve health. While it is true that many health issues may dissipate with weight loss, not all will go away simply by losing weight. Dr. Shouhed offers effective treatment and management of obesity-related conditions for his patients to help them achieve better health and a higher quality of life.
Common Obesity-Associated Conditions
Obesity usually occurs over many years, sometimes a lifetime. The excess weight puts strain on the various systems in the body, slowly causing health conditions that require medical treatment. The heart and connected circulatory and vascular system must work harder. The liver and lungs are also affected. Many obese people suffer with musculoskeletal conditions that affect their joints and spine. Dr. Shouhed is an obesity doctor that can help manage and provide treatment for obesity-related conditions, including:
- Diabetes mellitus
