What role does your primary care provider have in your weight plan?
Having support from a properly trained Primary Care Provider (PCP) is key to help ensure that your plan is both safe and effective. This support may include a recommended diet, an exercise schedule, and prescription weight-loss medication. A PCP may also refer you to a nutritionist or physical therapist, a weight loss support group, or even to a surgical weight clinic. They may also need to check your heart, lungs and kidneys to make sure you can withstand strenuous exercise. Your provider will be able to answer any questions you have about your weight, monitor your progress, and help create plan adjustments when necessary.
How to talk to your primary care doctor about weight management and wellness
Conversations around weight can be difficult, but remember that your PCP is there to support your overall wellness. If you’re considering embarking on a weight-loss regimen, schedule an appointment to consult with your PCP to discuss your current diet, level of exercise, and to share your weight goals. Your doctor will be able to address the areas of your lifestyle that can be changed for more successful weight management. Additional programs and resources can be recommended to help you track your progress.
