Welcome to New Viva MD
It’s important though to understand how much of a problem we are having with weight in the U.S. According to the National Weight Control Registry there are about 108 Million people on diets in the United States, and these dieters make about 4-5 attempts each year. There are about 220,000 people with morbid obesity, and the cost for bariatric surgery can range from $11,500 to $26,000. Another study by the American Journal of Preventative Medicine estimates by 2030 about 42% of US adults could be obese adding $550 billion to heath care costs.
Obesity also brings increased risk for other diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, cancer or even stroke. There’s no better time than right now to make changes to your current lifestyle. Not only will you feel better about yourself, but the changes that will impact you will also make a huge difference for your family.
The Reason For Our Success
The reason we have so much success with weight loss at New Viva MD is because we know that everyone’s reason for weight gain can be completely different. Weight gain for some patients results from stress or poor lifestyle choices, and for others it can be more complicated. It’s not uncommon for us to find that some people are pre-diabetic and need assistance with handling blood sugars. Others may struggle with weight loss because of infections or conditions like Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis.
Our team of health professionals work together to first find the cause of your weight gain. We use a variety of diagnostics to uncover as much information as we can. Then we will then review that information with you and make a customized plan that makes sense for you.
The best way to learn more about what we do is to come into the office and meet with one of our health professionals. We will spend the time necessary to create a plan that will work for you.
Fill out one of the forms on our website or call us directly – we will get a time scheduled for you as soon as possible. Get ready to make the changes that will make sense for you!
