Carrying excess weight is a healthd risk. Your body can’t function at peak performance when carrying extra weight, particularly around the midsection.
Having a body mass index (BMI) over 30 significantly increases your risk of developing potentially dangerous health concerns, such as cardiovascular disease, hypertension (high blood pressure), Type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer.
Excess weight also puts pressure on your joints and muscles. Obesity is a common risk factor for chronic pain conditions like headaches, nerve pain, and back pain.
Losing weight can help improve your cardiovascular and nerve function. It may also boost your energy levels and relieve chronic pain to restore your quality of life.
Many factors can contribute to weight retention and difficulty losing weight, such as:

Nutrition is one of the most important reasons people gain or lose weight. Dr. Arevalo can help create a nutrition plan that works with your body to satiate your hunger and promote sustainable weight loss.
