Obesity is diagnosed in individuals with BMIs >30 or a body fat percentage >15% for men and 18% for women. Obesity is the underlying cause of many medical problems. Common problems caused by obesity include but not limited to,
- Hypertension (High blood pressure)
- Diabetes (High blood sugar)
- Hyperlipidemias (Elevated blood cholesterols)
- Sleep apnea
- Multiple joint discomfort
- Erectile dysfunction
- Exercise intolerance and troubled breathing
- Lack of self-esteem and poor quality of life
Multiple studies have shown that treating obesity alone can resolve almost half, if not all of the medical problems suffered by certain individuals.
At AndroGenX, we pride ourselves in the understanding of the concept of the uniqueness of every patient as an individual. We look beyond the boundaries of “Cookie Cutter” medicine because there is no “one size” that fits all.
Our treatment plans include hormone testing/balancing, oral medications, injectable medications, and diet educations that will be tailored to your individual need. Obesity management is life long and requires ongoing monitoring and counseling. At AndroGenX, we are a “judgment-free zone”. Our dedicated providers are here to coach you and keep you motivated and focused.
