Weight Management

There are so many options in the world of weight loss today. In the past, people used to think that it was all about diet and exercise. The Westmed Weight Management Team knows that there is much more involved - that’s why we take a completely different approach.

At Westmed, we understand the unique issues women have in losing weight and achieving a healthy lifestyle. Dr. Julianne Dunne, board certified in both obesity medicine and obstetrics and gynecology, and her team will help you balance the hormones in your body and develop a customized plan to address your weight management concerns. In addition to losing weight, you will feel better, sleep better and have more energy.

Hormonal hurdles that affect eating habits throughout your lifespan can sometimes contribute to infertility, increase the risks of pregnancy and delivery, as well as potentially impact the health of your baby. Excess weight can also contribute to future risk of heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, as well as certain cancers. Together, we’ll create a plan to help prevent these potential health conditions.

 

At Our First Meeting We Will:

  • Review your medical and nutritional history
  • Obtain baseline measurements and blood work
