Medical Weight Loss Q & A
What causes excess weight?
Weight fluctuations usually have to do with an equation involving the calories going in and out of the body. Inactivity and consuming more calories than you need per day leads to weight gain.
Weight gain isn’t always a product of diet and exercise habits, though. Other factors contribute to weight gain as well, including:
- Hormone fluctuations
- Medication side effects
- Mood changes
- Slowing metabolism as you age
Thyroid disorders, polycystic ovary syndrome, and Cushing’s disease can also cause weight gain. Thyroid hormones and cortisol cause the body to hold onto fat.
What are the health risks of being overweight?
Excess weight causes an increased risk for the following conditions:
- Heart disease
- Type 2 diabetes
- Sleep apnea
- Kidney problems
- Fatty liver disease
- Some cancers
Extra weight also causes mobility issues and places extra pressure on joints. If you have a condition like arthritis, for example, you may experience more pain in the joints than you would if you lost weight.
When should I see Dr. Chaffee for weight concerns?
As a primary care provider, Dr. Chaffee can help with weight loss any time it becomes a concern. Any time you notice abnormal weight gain, you should also get checked out by your doctor.

Exercise and nutrition counseling
Dr. Chaffee takes a holistic approach to treatment, helping you lose weight by promoting overall wellness. He helps design a targeted diet and exercise regimen for you to lose weight.
Invisa-red® laser therapy
Invisa-red therapy uses infrared lasers to reduce your trouble spots. The painless wavelengths penetrate your fat layers, causing them to release fat and accelerate weight loss. At the same time as it helps remove unwanted fat, it also promotes collagen renewal and skin tightening.
