Obesity & Diabetes Program Are you suffering from both Obesity & Diabetes?
If you are both diabetic and obese you need help with your weight from a team of specialists that provides integrated care for individuals with both problems; specialists in both diabetes and obesity management. Our team, including an endocrinologist, psychologist, dietitian, kinesiologist, and clinical nurse, has this unique combination of expertise. Diabetes is strongly associated with obesity, and the onset of diabetes typically coincides with a significant weight gain. Treating diabetes without also treating obesity is not optimal. It has been demonstrated that a relatively small (7-10%) but sustained weight loss may prevent diabetes onset and reduce the risks from diabetes over time. Losing weight is certainly one of the best health investments an obese diabetic can make.
