Weight Loss Q & A

Why am I gaining weight?

There is a common link between weight gain and an imbalance in food intake and energy output. If you consume more calories from food than you burn off, for instance, you gain weight. But it’s not just diet and exercise that affect your weight.

If you’re gaining weight, or if you’re finding that losing weight is a struggle, any of the following could contribute.

  • Thyroid dysfunction
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Pregnancy or menopause 
  • Fluid retention (edema), possibly from heart or kidney disease
  • Prescription medications, including birth control pills and antidepressants 

Because there may be a correlation between weight gain and difficulty losing weight to underlying health issues, it’s important to get your primary care physician involved early on in your journey.

What are the benefits of weight loss?

Whether you need to lose 20 pounds or 100 pounds, the compassionate team at Surya Medical Group can help. They evaluate you from head to toe and run any essential labs to determine if you have any health issues that may be inhibiting your weight loss success.

Losing weight isn’t just about dropping a pant size or two and feeling better about your appearance (although those are important), weight loss is beneficial for your health because it can:

  • Stabilize your blood sugar (glucose)
  • Improve your cholesterol numbers
  • Lower your blood pressure
  • Improve your sleep quality
  • Boost your energy levels

If you have type 2 diabetes, weight loss can even help resolve insulin resistance issues, so you might be able to stop taking certain medications over time.
