In recent years, our understanding of obesity in women has evolved alongside long-term studies. We now recognize that it is not simply the result of willpower, poor food choices and a sedentary lifestyle, but is a complex disease that’s also influenced by genetics, biology, behavior and exterior factors including social status, personal economy and culture.
More than just a matter of being ‘out of shape’, obesity is a serious, chronic health condition that can significantly increase your risk for hypertension, diabetes, coronary artery disease, osteoarthritis, sleep apnea, respiratory problems and even cancer. However, obesity is treatable with medical supervision and lifestyle changes. At Christiana Care’s Weight Management Center, we can help you achieve permanent weight loss and reduce your risk for obesity-related illnesses.Explore Useful Links
