Weight Loss Q & A

 

What are the health effects of obesity?

If you struggle with excess weight or obesity, you may have concerns about how it affects your appearance. But obesity can also have serious effects on your health. If you don’t reach and maintain a healthy weight, you’re at an increased risk for health problems that can affect your entire body.

Obesity-related health problems include, but are not limited to:

Type 2 diabetes

This chronic condition affects the way your body metabolizes sugar and can lead to serious complications when left unmanaged, including heart disease, stroke, and amputations.

High blood pressure and high cholesterol

High blood pressure, also known as hypertension, as well as high levels of LDL, or “bad” cholesterol, point to a significantly elevated risk of heart disease, heart failure, and stroke.

Sleep apnea

This condition causes you to stop breathing many times during the night, depriving you of the oxygen you need and preventing you from getting restful, satisfying sleep.

Chronic pain

When you carry excess weight, you may put excess strain on your bones and joints, leading to chronic pain from conditions, including arthritis.

Maintaining a healthy weight is a lifelong commitment, and though it may be challenging, you do have the power to control it. The team teaches you to be an active participant in your health and permanently change your lifestyle.

The physical exam can be a good time to ask your PCP questions about your health or discuss any changes or problems that you have noticed.

There are different tests that can be performed during your physical examination. Depending on your age or medical or family history, your PCP may recommend additional testing.

The purpose of an annual physical exam:

A physical examination is recommended at least once a year,for every age. These exams are used to:

  • check for possible diseases so they can be treated early
  • identify any issues that may become medical concerns in the future

    build a relationship with your PCP

You should visit your health care provider regularly, even if you feel healthy. The purpose of these visits is to:

  • Screen for medical issues
  • Assess your risk for future medical problems
  • Encourage a healthy lifestyle
  • Update vaccinations
  • Help you get to know your provider in case of an illness

Information

 

Even if you feel fine, you should still see your provider for regular checkups. These visits can help you avoid problems in the future. For example, the only way to find out if you have high blood pressure is to have it checked regularly. High blood sugar and high cholesterol level also may not have any symptoms in the early stages. Simple blood tests can check for these conditions.

There are specific times when you should see your provider. Below are screening guidelines for men ages 40 to 64.

BLOOD PRESSURE SCREENING

  • Have your blood pressure checked at least once a year. If the top number (systolic number) is between 120 to 139 mm Hg or the bottom number (diastolic number) is between 80 to 89 mm Hg, then continue to have it checked every year.
  • If the top number is greater than 140 or the bottom number is greater than 90, schedule an appointment with your provider.
  • If you have diabetes, heart disease, kidney problems, or certain other conditions, you may need to have your blood pressure checked more often.
  • Watch for blood pressure screenings in your area. Ask your provider if you can stop in to have your blood pressure checked.

Effects of age on blood pressureCHOLESTEROL SCREENING AND HEART DISEASE PREVENTION

  • Your cholesterol should be checked every 5 years.
  • If you have a high cholesterol level, diabetes, heart disease, kidney problems, or certain other conditions, you may need to be checked more often.
  • Some men should consider taking aspirin to prevent heart attacks. Ask your provider before you start aspirin because aspirin may increase your risk for bleeding.

DIABETES SCREENING

  • If you are age 45 or older, you should be screened every 3 years.
  • If you are overweight, ask your provider if you should be screened at a younger age. Asian Americans should be screened if their BMI is greater than 23.
  • If your blood pressure is above 140/80 mm Hg, or you have other risk factors for diabetes, your provider may test your blood sugar level for diabetes.

COLORECTAL CANCER SCREENING

If you are under age 50, talk to your health care provider about getting screened. You should be screened if you have a strong family history of colon cancer or polyps. Screening may also be considered if you have risk factors such as a history of inflammatory bowel disease or polyps.

If you are between ages 50 to 75, you should be screened for colorectal cancer. There are several screening tests available:

  • A fecal occult blood (stool-based) test done every year
  • A fecal immunochemical test (FIT) every year
  • A stool DNA test every 3 years
  • Flexible sigmoidoscopy every 5 years
  • Double contrast barium enema every 5 years
  • CT colonography (virtual colonoscopy) every 5 years
  • Colonoscopy every 10 years

You may need a colonoscopy more often if you have risk factors for colorectal cancer, such as:

  • Ulcerative colitis
  • A personal or family history of colorectal cancer
  • A history of growths called adenomatous polyps

DENTAL EXAM

  • Go to the dentist once or twice every year for an exam and cleaning. Your dentist will evaluate if you have a need for more frequent visits.

EYE EXAM

Have an eye exam every 2 to 4 years ages 40 to 54 and every 1 to 3 years ages 55 to 64. Your provider may recommend more frequent eye exams if you have vision problems or glaucoma risk.

Have an eye exam at least every year if you have diabetes.

IMMUNIZATIONS

  • You should get a flu shot every year.
  • Your provider may recommend other vaccinations if you have certain medical conditions, such as diabetes.
  • You should have a tetanus-diphtheria booster vaccination every 10 years. If you have not received a tetanus-diphtheria and acellular pertussis (Tdap) vaccine as one of your tetanus-diphtheria vaccines, you should have it once.
  • You may get a shingles or herpes zoster vaccination once after age 50.

OSTEOPOROSIS SCREENING

  • If you are between ages 50 to 70 and have risk factors for osteoporosis, you should discuss screening with your provider.
  • Risk factors can include long-term steroid use, low body weight, smoking, heavy alcohol use, having a fracture after age 50, or a family history of osteoporosis.

OsteoporosisPHYSICAL EXAM

  • Your blood pressure should be checked at least every year.
  • Your height, weight, and body mass index (BMI) should be checked at every exam.

  • Depression
  • Diet and exercise
  • Alcohol and tobacco use
  • Safety, such as use of seat belts and smoke detectors

PROSTATE CANCER SCREENING

  • Most men age 50 or older should discuss screening for prostate cancer with their provider. African American men and those with a family history of prostate cancer in a first degree relative younger than age 65 should discuss screening at age 45.
  • The potential benefits of PSA testing as a routine screening test have not been definitively shown to outweigh the harms of testing and treatment. If you choose to be tested, the PSA blood test is most often done every year.
  • Prostate examinations are no longer routinely done on men with no symptoms.

Prostate cancerTESTICULAR EXAM

  • The US Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) now recommends against performing testicular self-exams. Doing testicular self-exams has been shown to have little to no benefit.

  • Have a 30 pack-year smoking history AND
  • Currently smoke or have quit within the past 15 years

In-office Procedures as:

Mole biopsy or removal
Moles are growths on the skin that occur when pigment cells in the skin, called melanocytes, grow in clusters. Moles are very common. Most moles do not require treatment but can be removed when,
• The mole is bothersome to a patient (rubs against clothing, etc.).
• A biopsy should be conducted to confirm it is not skin cancer.
Removing a mole is a simple procedure and usually requires only one office visit. Depending on the size and location of the mole it will be accomplished either by surgical excision or a surgical shave. As a precaution, the removed mole is sent to the laboratory for a biopsy to ensure no cancer is present.
You should have a health care professional check your moles if they look unusual, grow larger, change in color or outline, or change in any other way.
Additional procedures includes but not limited to:
Ingrown toenail removal
Skin tags removals
Abscess Incision and drainage
Skin Laceration Repairs
