Obesity is endemic in our society. The risks of untreated obesity include but are not limited to: high blood pressure, diabetes, heart attack, arthritis, and sciatica. Weight loss has been shown to reduce risk factors for these and other chronic diseases. The National Institutes of Health has asked physicians to identify at-risk patients and encourage weight loss.
