Weight Loss Q&A

How can weight loss benefit my health?

When you’re overweight or have a body mass index (BMI) greater than 30, you’re at a much higher risk for developing chronic conditions. Your healthy weight range varies based on your gender, age, and height. 

For some, healthy weight loss is a critical factor in preventive care or chronic condition management. Healthy weight loss of just 5-10% of your starting weight can lessen the load on your body and offers benefits, such as: 

  • Lower health risks 
  • Improved self-image and sex drive
  • Improved blood sugar and cholesterol levels
  • Increased energy levels 
  • Decreased joint pain 
  • Improved sleep and sexual function
  • Diminished anxiety and depression 
  • Improved sense of wellness 

The team at Texas Primary Care Specialists works with you to develop a plan for weight loss that fits your goals and benefits you the most. 

What chronic conditions can improve with healthy weight loss?

With healthy, medically supervised weight loss, you can help improve, slow, or stop the progression of some chronic conditions, including:

  • Diabetes
  • Chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD)
  • Heart and vascular disease
  • Sleep apnea 
  • Congestive heart failure (CHF)
  • Arthritis 
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Sexual dysfunction 
  • High blood pressure 

Healthy weight loss also lowers your risk for heart attack, blood clots, and stroke. If you’re overweight, losing weight can improve and benefit your health in the short term and throughout your lifetime. 

What weight-loss plan is right for me?

Healthy weight loss isn't about using one specific plan or diet. You are most successful at weight loss when a program takes into account your unique needs. 

Dr. Acharya and his team develop a weight-loss plan that considers your:

  • Personal goals
  • Healthy weight range
  • Age and gender
  • Mobility limitations
  • Health history
  • Economic resources
  • Chronic conditions 
  • Body type 
  • Dietary preferences
  • Lifestyle and habits 

Depending on these factors, Dr. Acharya creates a customized plan that includes medications, nutritional support, dietary changes, an exercise plan, and ongoing support. The goal of healthy weight loss is to improve your overall wellness and help you meet your goals. The team is with you every step of the way.
