Overview of Weight Gain

Naturopathic Weight Loss Doctor for Sustained Solutions

America is experiencing an unprecedented health crisis with rapidly increasing rates of both adult and childhood obesity.  Two thirds of our adult population are overweight and obese which predisposes them to many chronic diseases such as cancer, diabetes, thyroid conditions, and heart disease to name a few.  We have the highest obesity rate out of all developed nations and the highest cost of healthcare related to preventable conditions. Many patients don’t even know that their diabetes was preventable and that they can actually reverse it by making the proper diet and lifestyle modifications.  What’s worse is that now are children are developing type II diabetes at increasing rates. In fact, type II diabetes used to be called adult onset diabetes but has changed its name because young children frequently develop it now. The upside is that with proper education, diet, exercise, and a healthy lifestyle, obesity is easily reversible and quality of life can be restored.

Conventional Medical Care for Weight Issues

Before receiving treatment for weight gain and obesity, family medicine doctors and primary care doctors must first rule out conditions that cause weight gain.  These may include condition such as hypothyroidism, diabetes, depression, hormonal imbalances, and high cholesterol. Common screening blood-work such as TSH, T4, CBC, Liver Function Tests, Fasting glucose and hemoglobin A1c (HbA1c), and Cholesterol Panels often aid in diagnosing or ruling out weight generating conditions.  

If the patient is diagnosed with hypothyroidism (high TSH, low T4) initial treatment with Synthroid (levothyroxine) will begin.  If the patient has type II diabetes, Metformin will usually be prescribed or insulin depending on severity. Patients with high cholesterol are started on statin medications such as Lipitor (atorvastatin).  For the patients that have weight gain without a specific medical condition causing it, doctors will consider weight loss medications. Commonly prescribed weight loss drugs include Phentermine and other stimulants.  Weight loss surgery is also common for obese patients who are unresponsive to other therapies or elect to skip these therapies and go straight to surgery. Common weight loss surgical options include bariatric surgery, bypass surgery and gastric banding.
