Obesity - Treating the Symptoms or the Cause?

Written by 

Health Editor Alice Watson writes in Forbes magazine about a new study from the Harvard School of Public Health. The study shows that reducing three key factors related to obesity (high blood pressure, blood sugar and cholesterol) can cut heart disease in obese people by half.

Ms. Watson correctly observes that this is treating the symptoms of obesity, without treating the real cause. Many primary care physicians don't have the time or expertise to treat their patients for obesity. National Institutes of Health has shown medically-supervised weight loss clinics can be more effective than primary care for treatment of overweight and obesity!

For good health, Dr. Farooq Ahmad of California Medical Weight Management recommends the low-fat Mediterranean diet. California Medical Weight Management has weight loss clinics in California and Texas. Follow us on the web at Facebook and Google+.
