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
  • Stroke
  • 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.
