Obesity & Weight Management

Obesity is a complex and multifactorial condition that affects millions of people worldwide. It is commonly defined as having a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher, but it is also associated with a number of other health conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and some cancers. While lifestyle factors such as diet and exercise play a significant role in obesity, hormonal imbalances can also contribute to weight gain and difficulty losing weight. 

At Sterling Hospitals Ahmedabad, our weight management program takes a comprehensive approach that includes not just lifestyle modifications but also hormonal evaluation and treatment. Our team of endocrinologists, dieticians, and weight management specialists work together to develop personalized treatment plans that address the underlying hormonal imbalances contributing to obesity. 

One of the key components of our weight management program is BMI assessments. We use the latest technology to accurately measure BMI, which is a measure of body fat based on height and weight. BMI assessments are important because they help us determine the degree of obesity and develop a personalized treatment plan that is tailored to each patient's needs. 

Obesity is associated with a number of health risks, especially in Gujarat where it is a major health concern. In addition to the increased risk of type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease, obesity can also lead to high blood pressure, sleep apnea, osteoarthritis, and certain cancers. Our weight management program is designed to not only help patients lose weight but also reduce their risk of these health complications. 

Hormonal imbalances can play a significant role in obesity. For example, conditions such as hypothyroidism and polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) can contribute to weight gain and difficulty losing weight. Our team of endocrinologists is experienced in evaluating and treating these and other hormonal imbalances that can contribute to obesity. We use the latest diagnostic tests and imaging techniques to accurately identify hormonal imbalances and develop personalized treatment plans. 

Our weight management program also includes personalized diet and exercise plans. We work with patients to develop customized meal plans that are tailored to their individual needs and preferences. We also provide education on healthy eating habits, portion control, and how to read food labels. Exercise is also an important component of weight management. Our team of weight management specialists develops personalized exercise plans that are safe and effective. 

In addition to lifestyle modifications and hormonal evaluation and treatment, we also offer weight loss medications and bariatric surgery for patients who meet certain criteria. Our weight management specialists work with patients to determine if these options are appropriate and safe for them. 

At Sterling Hospitals Ahmedabad, we are committed to helping our patients achieve and maintain a healthy weight. We understand that weight management is a complex and challenging process, and we are here to support our patients every step of the way.
