Top 3 Obesity Treatments

 
Adipex-P  

Obesity can be difficult to control. It is not simply being “overweight,” but is instead a specific health condition marked by weight so high that it causes health problems. Obesity is generally defined as a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 30 or above. In women, a waist size of 35 may indicate obesity, while in men it is a waist size of 40. In people of Asian descent, a BMI of 27.5 may be considered obese, along with a waist size of 32 in women or 36 in men.

Obesity can elevate your risk for numerous health problems including stroke, heart disease, type 2 diabetes and sleep apnea. However, losing weight can be difficult, particularly if you have a family history of obesity. If you have been unable to lose weight during a six month regimen of diet and exercise, your doctor may prescribe medication.

Adipex-P has the active ingredient phentermine, which is no longer prescribed in Europe due to a possible connection to heart and lung problems. However, it is still available in the United States. The medication works by suppressing the appetite, encouraging you to eat less.

Adipex-P carries a risk of side effects, some of which may be severe. These risks may be increased when the medication is taken alongside other prescription, over the counter or herbal weight loss drugs or other medications. Check with your doctor or pharmacist before taking any new remedies while being treated with Adipex-P. Be sure to tell your doctor right away of any unusual symptoms that develop.

The medication is not recommended for those with certain underlying medical conditions. Your doctor will review your full medical history before deciding whether Adipex-P is right for you.

 
Meridia  

Obesity can be a difficult condition to fight. Obesity is not simply being overweight, but rather it is a medical condition defined by so much extra weight that it puts your health in danger. Obesity can be measured by both waist size and BMI or Body Mass Index. Most experts agree that a BMI of 30 or higher defines obesity, although in people of Asian descent, that number may be as low as 27.5. A waist size of 35 inches in women or 40 inches in men can also be considered obese. In people of Asian descent, a female waist size of 32 inches or a male waist of 36 inches can be considered obese.

Obesity raises your risk of numerous health problems including type 2 diabetes, stroke, sleep apnea and heart disease. It can be difficult for those suffering from obesity to lose weight through diet and exercise, particularly if you have a family history of obesity.

If you have made a concerted effort at lifestyle changes to lose weight for six months or more, your doctor may prescribe a medication to help you lose weight. One of the most popular is Meridia. Meridia affects several chemicals in your brain, helping you to feel full more quickly. It should be used alongside healthy eating and exercise habits.

Meridia can cause side effects, some of which are severe. Increased heart rate and blood pressure are possible, so your doctor may want to monitor these on a regular basis. Meridia affects serotonin levels in the brain, which can rarely lead to a disorder called serotonin syndrome. Be sure to tell your doctor about any unusual symptoms that you experience.

Meridia should not be taken by those with certain underlying medical conditions, and can interact negatively with a wide range of medications. Your doctor will review your medical history to help you decide if Meridia is right for you.

 
Xenical  

Obesity is a medical condition that is more than simply being “overweight.” Obesity occurs when your body weight is high enough to cause danger to your health. Most experts agree that obesity can be measured by a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 30 or more or a waist size of 35 inches for women, 40 inches for men. In people of Asian descent, a BMI of 27.5 or a waist size of 32 inches in women or 36 inches in men may be considered obese.

Obesity increases your risk of several health problems including type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea, heart disease and stroke. However, losing weight can be difficult, particularly for those with a family history of obesity. If you have been unsuccessful in losing weight through diet and exercise for six months, your doctor may prescribe medication.

Xenical should only be taken by those who are genuinely obese. It is not recommended for standard weight loss. The medication works by preventing your body from breaking down some fat into a usable form. Instead, approximately 1/3 of the fat you consume passes through your intestines and is released in your stool.

Xenical can help to reduce obesity, but is not right for everyone. It should not be used by those with certain underlying medical conditions, and it can interact with a variety of prescription and over the counter medications. Some side effects can potentially be serious. Only your doctor can help you decide whether Xenical is the best choice for you.
