Weight Management Q & A

Why is weight management so important?

Maintaining a healthy weight is crucial to reducing chronic diseases like diabetes, hypertension, and high cholesterol. Being overweight or obese predisposes you to joint pain, fatigue, poor long-term health, and mental health issues like depression and anxiety.

The Thuy T. Nguyen, M.D., Inc. team aims to help everyone achieve their weight-loss goals in order to improve their overall health and quality of life. You can get the support, education, and reassurance you need to be successful in your weight-loss journey.

What type of assistance is available for weight loss?

Dr. Nguyen offers comprehensive health care and weight management counseling to help you lose weight safely and effectively. Every person has their own unique needs and challenges when it comes to losing weight, so Dr. Nguyen helps you to develop a weight-loss strategy that works for you.

The first step is assessing your overall health, nutrition, activity level, sleep, and stress. Dr. Nguyen helps you identify areas where you can improve — like eating smaller portions of foods or increasing your daily physical activity level.

From there, Dr. Nguyen checks in with you as needed to make sure you are taking steps forward with your weight-loss program. If you have questions or need more information about nutrition or exercise, Dr. Nguyen and his team are available to answer your questions.

What are my weight-loss options after counseling?

If weight management counseling isn’t enough to help you lose weight, Dr. Nguyen provides referrals to specialists, including bariatric surgeons. Dr. Nguyen co-manages your care before and after bariatric surgery so you achieve the best results possible.

In many cases, making lifestyle changes prior to bariatric surgery can help you to be more successful with weight loss after surgery. Maintaining a healthy weight takes time and requires you to develop healthy habits in order to avoid gaining weight again after surgery.

Dr. Nguyen and his team walk you through your options for weight loss so you can choose the right course of action. They also provide support and lifestyle advice post-surgery so you can maintain your weight loss.

Weight loss can seem like a lonely, confusing process. With support from the Thuy T. Nguyen, M.D., Inc. team, you are not alone. Call or schedule an appointment online now to get started.
