Weight Loss (Releana HCG Weight Loss) Q & A

Reyes and Reyes, MD, PA

Why is it important to maintain a healthy weight?

If you’re overweight, you’re at a greater risk of developing a variety of complications, including:

  • Gallbladder disease
  • Stroke
  • Heart disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Certain cancers

Patients who are overweight are also more likely to experience complications because of conditions they already have. In addition, being overweight raises the risk of developing mental health issues, such as depression and low self-esteem.

When is weight loss necessary?

Weight loss is necessary when your weight is higher than it should be for your height. In most cases, Dr. Reyes will evaluate your current weight based on your body mass index, or BMI. This measure is calculated based on your weight and height:

  • You’re at a healthy weight if your BMI is between 18.5 and 25.
  • If your BMI is 25 or higher, you’re overweight.
  • Patients with a BMI of 30 or more are considered obese.
