We believe that for most of our patients, being overweight is a chronic medical illness. This illness is a lifelong condition, which has genetic, metabolic, and behavioral components. We are committed to helping patients deal with this very difficult medical problem on a continuing basis by selecting and providing the best tools medical science has available today.
We Can Help You Live a Healthy Life
Overweight and obesity are chronic illnesses characterized by abnormal body chemistry in most of our patients. Medical scientists have recently shown that as a person gains weight, even small increments in waist size will increase health risk. Weight gain due to increased body fat can lead to, or make worse, diabetes, insulin resistance, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, degenerative arthritis, gall bladder disease, asthma, heart failure, high cholesterol, coronary heart disease, breast and endometrial cancer in women, and prostate and colon cancer in men.
Perhaps you have one or more of these illnesses?
Patients who already have one or more of the medical complications of obesity find that these associated medical conditions improve, and even go away, with weight loss and continuing weight management through our medically structured program. Patients who are on medications for diabetes, hypertension, etc. find that anti-obesity medications used in weight management DO NOT conflict with any of the medications used to treat these conditions.
Dr. Ed Hendricks and the Staff at The Center for Weight Management, non-surgical weight loss clinics located in Roseville and Sacramento, follow national standards of practice and guidelines of the American Society of Bariatric Physicians in treating patients with these illnesses. They are committed to helping overweight and obese patients manage their illness using the most modern and effective treatment methods which include individually structured diets, motivational tools, carefully selected supplementary vitamins and minerals, high quality protein supplements, and weight management medications. The experience and education Dr. Hendricks & Staff have gathered enable them to give patients the very best care and strategies modern bariatric medicine can provide. (See Curriculum Vitae)
