Obesity is defined as having an excessive amount of body fat that increases the risk of other health problems. A person with a Body Mass Index (BMI) over 30 is generally considered obese. BMI is calculated based on your weight and height, and gives an estimate of body fat.
Causes of obesity are complex and include genetic, hormonal, environmental, psychological, and other factors. Consuming more calories from food and drink than your body uses over time leads to weight gain and obesity. Lifestyle factors like lack of exercise, poor diet, stress, and lack of sleep also play a major role.

Health risks associated with obesity include high blood pressure, high cholesterol, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, breathing issues, gallbladder disease, and certain types of cancers. That said, obesity is a complex chronic disease and every body is different. Working with a knowledgeable hormone doctor can help customize a weight loss plan specific to your needs.

At Balance Hormone Solutions, we specialize in customized weight loss programs that get to the root causes of stubborn fat. We start by testing your hormone levels, as imbalances in hormones like estrogen, cortisol and thyroid can prevent weight loss. Our expert medical staff then creates a personalized plan with hormone balancing, supplements, nutrition and fitness advice tailored just for you.

Our individualized programs have helped hundreds of patients successfully lose weight and improve their overall health. We go beyond surface level solutions to uncover and resolve the underlying issues causing weight gain. Balance Hormone Solutions offers telehealth appointments for your convenience. Call today for a free consultation with one of our weight loss specialists to discuss your health goals.

The key to managing obesity long-term is developing sustainable healthy lifestyle habits around nutrition and physical activity. Small consistent changes to your daily routine can make a big difference over time. Prioritizing sleep, reducing stress, and maintaining social connections also support weight loss efforts. Each person's path to better health is unique - work closely with your doctor to find an approach that fits your individual needs.
