In the United States, the prevalence of obesity is increasing at an alarming rate. Obesity is associated with numerous serious medical conditions, many of which are among the leading causes of preventable, premature death. Rejuvime offers weight-loss medications at our clinics in Baton Rouge, the New Orleans area, and other locations in Louisiana and Mississippi that are among the most promising treatments for obesity.

Obesity Health Consequences

In 2023, 42% of the adult population in the U.S. had obesity, according to Trust for America’s Health. These individuals are at greater risk for life-threatening health concerns, including:

  • Heart disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Arthritis
  • Sleep apnea
  • Certain types of cancer

Over the past two decades, obesity rates have climbed for all population groups, making this one of the most serious health crises facing our country.

How Is Obesity Defined?

Generally, doctors and nutritionists classify people as either underweight, healthy weight, overweight, or obese. These different classifications are determined by your body mass index (BMI), or a measure of body fat based on your height and weight. However, BMI is not a perfect measurement for all people, and Rejuvime Medical doesn’t rely on BMI to determine if you are a candidate for treatment.

Why Is Obesity Increasing?

The reasons for what some call an obesity epidemic are complex. Ultimately, weight gain results from consuming more calories than you burn. Unhealthy diets that include fast and highly processed foods combined with a lack of physical activity are certainly contributing factors. Poor sleep habits and stress are also linked to poor nutrition, overeating, and obesity. Hormonal changes associated with aging can also lead to a sluggish metabolism, low energy, and weight gain.

Weight Loss Treatments

Battling obesity is challenging, but the mental and physical benefits of losing weight are worth the effort. Combining lifestyle changes that include regular exercise with weight loss medications such as compounded semaglutide or tirzepatide can help you lose significant weight and maintain a lower BMI.
