Weight Loss Q & A

How can Dr. Cook help me lose weight?

Several different health concerns are related to obesity and doctors who specialize in weight loss and nutrition can help patients lose weight safely and effectively. Dr. Cook can help patients by organizing a diet and exercise program which can make losing the excess weight easier. Since many factors such as the patient’s age, any medical conditions present, overall health, and daily schedule can all affect weight loss.

Can medical conditions affect my weight?

Hormonal imbalances and other medical issues can affect how the body breaks down food and uses nutrients. This can frequently affect a person’s weight gain or loss. If you are diagnosed with a disorder of the endocrine system or a hormonal imbalance, Dr. Cook can work with you to help you get the treatment you need. This can help you sustain a healthy weight. For some people, correcting the imbalance or disorder can help the weight come off easier since the root cause of the excess weight gain has been treated.

What will treatment be like?

To help patients lose weight safely, each patient will go through an individual evaluation of his or her overall health. This will help to identify what things could be contributing to the weight gain and what types of treatments are needed to reduce weight and keep it off. A custom-made plan is crafted by Dr. Cook and can include options such as:

  • Diet and nutritional recommendations
  • Activity and exercise suggestions
  • Medications to address hormonal imbalances or other underlying conditions
  • Lifestyle changes
