How Do Doctors Treat Obesity?

Treatment ranges from lifestyle changes to medical and surgical options.

Lifestyle modifications can include:

  • Learning healthier habits around eating and food choices
  • Adding physical activity into your daily life
  • Keeping a consistent sleep schedule

Your care team can help you learn how to make these changes in your life, so they fit in your time and your budget. The care team can also help with motivation and setting goals, so you can reach your weight and health goals. If the care team thinks making lifestyle changes alone is not enough, they can refer you to a center where medications and surgery for weight loss is offered.
