Weight Loss Q & A

What is considered overweight?

The body mass index (BMI) is a tool that many doctors use to determine if you are at a normal weight for your height. Here are the categories:

  • Obese: over 30
  • Overweight: 25 - 29.9
  • Normal: 18.5 - 24.9
  • Underweight: 18.4 or less

There are many factors like bone mass, genetics, and hormone dysfunction that Dr. Billing also considers when he evaluates your weight, but BMI is the first place to start.

Why is weight loss important?

When you’re overweight, your risk for a number of serious health conditions increases. Some of the most detrimental include:

  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Sleep apnea
  • Cancer
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Stroke

In addition, if you have an inflammatory condition like arthritis, excess weight can worsen the stress on your joints.

What weight loss programs do you offer?

Transform Weight Loss offers several options to help you lose weight and keep it off, including:

  • Customized, medically guided programs
  • The balloon, a non-surgical solution
  • The sleeve, a minimally-invasive solution
  • Nutrition and fitness counseling

The clinic also uses biometrics to personalize your medical weight loss.

What supplements are available to keep me healthy as I lose weight?
