Obesity and associated conditions we treat at W8MD
In the United States, about 36.5% of all adults are clinically obese defined as a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or more according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). The estimated annual medical cost of obesity in the U.S. was $147 billion in 2008 U.S. dollars; the medical costs for people who have obesity were $1,429 higher than those of normal weight.
Some of the common obesity associated conditions include insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes mellitus, fatty liver(also called Non-Alcoholic Steatoheapatosis or NASH), polycystic ovaries (PCOS), hypertension, dyslipidemia, cardiovascular disease, stroke, sleep apnea, gallbladder disease, hyperuricemia and gout, and osteoarthritis.
Certain cancers are also associated with obesity, including colorectal and prostate cancer in men and endometrial, breast, and gallbladder cancer in women. Excess body weight is also associated with substantial increases in mortality from all causes, in particular, cardiovascular disease, in addition to the many psychological and economic effects associated with loss of productivity, decreased longevity and morbidity associated with obesity.

BIGGEST LOSER LOST OVER 150 LBS!
“I’ve been going to Dr. Tumpati at the King of Prussia location for about 9 months and have lost 150 pounds*. I was at a point where my weight was affecting my life and health, ignoring it was no longer an option. I wanted to lose weight safely, but effectively, yet most people said it was impossible. It was time to hire a professional. Dr. Tumpati and staff have been great explaining every step of the process and making sure I stay on track. The accountability and constant encouragement have been key parts of my success, as well as the knowledge that I was following a plan that would work and had actual medical science to back it” Dawn V.
“My doctor recommended that I go for a sleep study and I found I had obstructive sleep apnea. I got a CPAP machine and a few months later, I still wasn’t feeling good, so Dr. Tumpati recommended I try to lose weight. Under his supervision, I started my journey on June 16, 2015 and I went on the Medication “Contrave” and had no side effects. i came off CPAP and I have more energy and to date, with the help of Dr. Tumpati and Laura, 9 months later, I am down 75 pounds and have lost 10 inches in my waist and 13 inches in my hips. I feel so good, I’ve decided to work an extra two years (I’m almost 65). – Tom G.
TRULY LIFE CHANGER!
I have lost 103 pounds, reaching and actually surpassing by a couple of pounds my weight loss goal, and am maintaining. My monthly visits with Dr. Tumpati, as well as the positive reinforcement of his staff, really help to keep me on track. My new eating habits have become my new normal, and I accept that adhering to these guidelines regarding my food needs to be a permanent part of my health routine, just like brushing my teeth. Living healthy and feeling good about the way I look are such great ways to start and go through my day that I can’t think of anything better. All my positives are enhanced and any negatives don’t seem as bad because at my center I am healthy, vibrant, energetic, and able to attract goodness. Every day is filled with gratitude that I have emerged from this process – dare I say it? Victorious! – D.M.
