Many factors cause weight gain and obesity, such as genetics, stress, sleeping issues, hormonal imbalance, and eating habits. As people age, their activity level often decreases but their calorie intake remains the same. Specifically for women, weight gain is especially common around age 50 when they experience menopause. The heavier you are, the more likely you will be diagnosed with a condition directly related to your diet and weight.
What is a Bariatrician?
Bariatricians are physicians that specialize in obesity medicine. They posses a thorough understanding of the treatment of obesity with assessment of genetic, biologic, environmental, social, and behavioral factors.
An obesity medicine physician employs therapeutic interventions including diet, physical activity, behavioral changes, and medications.
A bariatrician utilizes a multidisciplinary approach for each patient by consulting with nutritionists, exercise physiologists, and bariatric surgeons to achieve optimal results. In addition, bariatric surgery patients are provided pre-peri and post surgical care as well as obesity prevention and patient support.
