Weight Loss Management Program

Although many Americans are considered overweight, and it is not often considered a medical concern, being overweight or obese can have devastating effects on your health. When you are overweight instead of a healthy weight you face an increased risk for all the conditions outlined below:

  • Gallbladder disease.
  • Mortality (all causes of death).
  • High triglycerides, high LDL cholesterol, or low HDL cholesterol.
  • High blood pressure, also known as hypertension.
  • Low quality of life.
  • Various types of cancer.
  • Breathing problems and sleep apnea.
  • Osteoarthritis, which means the bones and cartilage are broken down.
  • Stroke.
  • Coronary heart disease.
  • Type two diabetes. 
  • Pain and difficulty with regular functions.
  • Mental illnesses like anxiety, depression, and others. 

To be considered overweight, you would have a body mass index or BMI of 25 or greater. Obesity is having a BMI of 30 or more. Thankfully, even if you find yourself in these high-risk groups, at our primary care facility, we are able to help you create a weight loss program to help you lose weight and get healthy. 

Dermatology & Skin Care Solutions

Skin conditions can be detrimental to your well-being for a variety of reasons. They can cause pain, lead you to be self-conscious, and more. Therefore, if you are having any issues with your skin, you need to seek the medical care of a professional at our primary care office. 

Flu Shot

For many, getting the flu shot is required for employment. For others, it is simply a good way to guard against getting the flu and facing some of the more severe complications that can go along with this virus. When you get the flu, the complications of this infection can cause severe health problems even leading to hospitalization or worse. Therefore, it’s a good idea for most people to get the flu shot to prevent complications with this virus.

High Blood Pressure

High blood pressure, also called hypertension, is blood pressure above 140/90. While there are usually no symptoms of high blood pressure that you will notice if you have hypertension untreated, it can lead to severe health conditions, like stroke or heart disease. Thankfully, hypertension is very treatable once diagnosed.  

High Cholesterol 

If you have high cholesterol, this means your blood flow can be limited. This will increase your risk of stroke and heart attack. Diagnosing this chronic condition can be done at our primary care location with a simple blood test. It is treatable. Finding out if you have high cholesterol and then treating it is important to your long-term health. 

Allergy Testing

Another benefit of choosing us as your primary care medical provider is allergy testing. We can test for your sensitivity to common allergens like animal dander, molds, plant pollens, and insect stings. We also can test for food allergies and look for sensitivity to wheat, eggs, peanuts, milk, and shellfish. We can help you determine if you need further evaluation for allergies that could include injections or other treatments. If your allergies are not as severe, we can recommend allergy medication that can reduce the symptoms. 

Thyroid Testing

Your thyroid is the endocrine gland that is situated in your neck. It makes two important hormones that are then secreted into the blood. These are T3 or triiodothyronine and T4 or thyroxine. These hormones play a vital role in ensuring all the cells of your body are working normally. Therefore, you need to determine if you are having a problem with your thyroid and if it is not functioning as it should. At primary care Sugarloaf, we are happy to test your thyroid to ensure that it is working as it should. If there is a problem found after testing, we can also work with you to devise a treatment plan that will help increase these hormones and get your body back to working as it should.
