Medical Evaluation for Abnormal Weight Gain
Many people gain weight despite eating healthier and getting more physical activity. If you are working hard at losing weight and are not seeing results, you may have a medical problem. We specialize in the medical and hormonal evaluation and treatment of abnormal weight gain and diet-resistant obesity.
Hormones and body weight are very closely related. Often times, a hormonal disorder can be the underlying cause of weight gain or failure to lose weight with diet and exercise. An evaluation with a board-certified endocrinologist can identify treatable hormonal problems that may be interfering with weight loss.
Because abnormal weight gain is a medical problem, insurance companies usually allow a full evaluation with an endocrinologist. An evaluation typically includes obtaining a detailed history, physical examination and laboratory testing.
There are many different medical problems that can cause weight gain or make weight loss difficult. Dr. Isaacs prides himself in performing a detailed evaluation to look for the common and not so common causes of abnormal weight gain.
