Obesity – A Growing Epidemic, even in Scottsdale Arizona
The United States faces a health care emergency – alarming increase in obesity rates. The solution is readily applicable: weight loss. Obesity is a problem of increasing proportions. Indeed, medical professionals consider it an epidemic. Though it is not a “hot button” issue like the growing opioid epidemic, obesity has serious national implications. And it has been around far longer, and it continues increasing at an alarming rate. In March 2018, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reported that in a 10-year period (2007-2008 and 2015-2016), adult obesity rates increased from 33.7% to 39.6 percent.
A National Threat
CDC described the increase as significant. Further, rates of severe obesity increased from 5.7% to 7.7% in the same period. Adding to the urgency, a recent National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, nationally, 18.5% of children and nearly 40% of adults are considered obese. Researchers with the Trust for America’s Health and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation continually monitor the obesity epidemic. They consider it a threat to the nation’s future.
Obesity in Arizona
Closer to home, research data indicates that Arizona has the 30th-highest adult obesity rate in the nation and the 32nd-highest obesity rate for young people (ages 10-17). Arizona’s current adult obesity rate is 29.5% (up from 14.9% in 2000).
Obesity has serious implications. The condition places people at higher risk for heart disease, stroke, type-2 diabetes, osteoarthritis and certain cancers (breast, ovary, colon, rectum, kidney, gallbladder, liver, cervix and prostate, among others). The problem is not just personal; it is national. Medical professionals indicate that conditions arising from obesity will drive up the costs of health care.
Benefits of Weight Loss
Weight loss not only reduces risk of serious disease, it has other demonstrable benefits. These include:
- Improved mobility
- Reduced back pain
- Improvement in symptoms of sleep apnea
- Increased confidence
- Increased energy
- Stress reduction and improved mood
While the benefits are numerous, even a relatively small amount of weight loss can have profound impact. Studies have revealed it takes just 5-10% weight reduction to improve physical and mental health and enhance lifestyle.
Consult Your Physician
To best reap the benefits of weight loss, consult your primary care physician. He/she will provide you with information more personalized to your specific condition. Your physician can also advise you if you need to decrease or eliminate medications that may lead to obesity. Also, your physician may refer you to a specialty center for weight loss and obesity. We are a common referral clinic for many PCP’s due to our area of expertise and longevity. We have a reputation of getting results without hardcore medications or fad diets.
Paradigm-shifting Weight Loss Concept
Vitality’s innovative weight-loss process involves human chorionic gonadotropin (HGC), a hormone that mobilizes fat stores and enables them to nourish the body, instead letting the fat storage simply add pounds and inches. In layman’s terms, this means that fat is converted into calories burned. It’s part of a comprehensive six-week All-in-One Programs that combines diet, medical and hormonal approaches to losing weight. On average, with our HCG Program, patients lose from four to eight pounds each week. Do the math. At the end of the six-week regimen, a patient could lose up to nearly 50 pounds. And the end of the six-week program doesn’t mean the end of weight loss. Our patients are equipped with knowledge and techniques on how to best govern their diet and lifestyle to maintain and sustain weight loss.
