Being obese increases your risk of diabetes, heart disease, stroke, arthritis and some cancers. Losing just 10% of your body weight can delay or prevent some of these diseases. Obesity occurs over time when more calories are consumed than are burned. Factors affecting weight can include genetics, physical activity and diet.
At New Horizon we work with many diabetics and pre-diabetics. We focus on a proper balance of nutrition and exercise with counseling. We provide the education, support and motivation needed to change behavior and our patients deliberately make better lifestyle choices as a result. Our multi-disciplined approach keeps our patients balanced and in control of their weight loss journey. We have helped diabetic patients reduce their diabetes medications and we have helped pre-diabetics reverse their trend toward becoming diabetic.
