Many Anna Jaques' physicians work with patients to help them maintain a healthy weight in a variety of ways. Reaching and maintaining a healthy weight is important for overall health and can help you prevent and control many diseases and conditions. Talk to your primary care doctor about your eating habits and exercise goals, and the options available to you to help manage and maintain a healthy weight.
If you are overweight or obese, you are at higher risk of developing serious health problems, including heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, gallstones, breathing problems, and certain cancers. That is why maintaining a healthy weight is so important: It helps you lower your risk for developing these problems, helps you feel good about yourself, and gives you more energy to enjoy life.
