Dr. Zamorano helps patients identify whether their weight is a health concern. Being merely 10 pounds overweight puts a patient more at risk of certain health conditions. Those who are classified as obese or morbidly obese are severely at risk for having a heart attack, stroke, or even developing certain cancers. He also realizes the profound effect it has on a person’s self-esteem. He begins by informing the patient about what a healthy weight is for him or her. Then he devises a plan and helps the patient implement it for overall better health. This usually begins by educating the patient on healthy eating practices and helping him or her to implement an exercise regimen. If more drastic measures are required, he’s able to refer the patient for weight loss surgery.
Dr. Zamorano educates patients on the risks of being overweight, such as the possibility of developing diabetes, hypertension, and high cholesterol. Through monitoring and testing, he helps the patient identify any health concerns and then tackles the issue of helping the person to lose weight. Once a patient loses weight, he or she will reap the benefits of being more active and having more energy.
