The Relationship Between Obesity & Diabetes

Worrisome trends.

The incidence of type II diabetes is increasing at an alarming rate, and is predicted to escalate and affect an increasing number of individuals. It’s no coincidence that a recent report projects obesity rates to rise in Florida to affect 58.6% of adults in the year 2030, if the problem is left unaddressed. Increased obesity rate is directly linked to the increased incidence of Type-2 Diabetes Mellitus in addition to cardiovascular disease and certain forms of cancer.

Curing obesity, beating diabetes.

Current treatments for diabetes and all obesity related illnesses are predominantly based on the use of chronically administered drugs. Bariatric surgery is often a consideration for the treatment of the obese patient, especially if diabetic, but it should only be considered as a last resort.

Bariatric surgery is not covered by the insurance industry unless the patient has not been able to lose weight, specifically including a medically supervised weight loss program.

Both the medical societies and the insurance industry have failed to set adequate standards as to what truly constitutes a medically supervised weight loss program; thus, there is a lack of basic standards and consistency.

Most medically supervised weight loss programs are limited to the administration of appetite suppressants alone as opposed to using them in conjunction with a bonafide support process which helps facilitate a sustainable lifestyle change.

Working at CardioMenderMD has given me the opportunity to address Obesity & Type-2 Diabetes with a credible medically supervised approach, which is by every standard considered the preferred treatment.

We provide the infrastructure, personnel and resources that allow us to deliver individualized medically supervised nutritional treatment programs that include cognitive and behavioral support in addition to nutritional and exercise counseling.

Our patients are the center of our attention, and are motivated, encouraged and followed closely in a nonjudgmental way to ensure that they achieve their goals.. What I am particularly proud of is the remarkable success rate we achieve that is due to the motivation that we give to each patient in addition to our comprehensive approach to implement sustainable lifestyle changes. One of the remarkable outcomes is that patients often, in a matter of a few weeks or months,reduce or entirely stop taking medications that were previously prescribed and in all likelihood would have been continued indefinitely.
