Cincinnati, Ohio (PressExposure) January 19, 2009 -- In support of the vital link between healthy weight and fitness, Mercy Healthy Weight Solutions has opened the doors to a new office at the Mercy Fairfield HealthPlex (located at 3050 Mack Road).
As the area's most complete weight loss program, Mercy Healthy Weight Solutions has been seeing patients at its current office on Winton Road since the program began in early 2008.
The program's wide range of services includes medical and surgical weight loss, nutrition, counseling, and fitness - including a six month membership to the Mercy HealthPlex of their choice and a Wellness Coach to facilitate their fitness plan.
Obesity rates in the United States continue to rise, and with them are increased risks for serious conditions such as hypertension, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, and sleep apnea. Fortunately, many of these health risks can be addressed and even eliminated through healthy weight loss. "The health effects of massive weight loss are dramatic," said Dr. Northup, "More than 88% of obese type 2 diabetics who have gastric bypass surgery are seeing complete resolution of the disease and elimination of all medication within days of the procedure."
Free patient information sessions are being held regularly for anyone who is interested. Upcoming sessions are scheduled at the Mercy Fairfield HealthPlex on: - January 28 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. - February 10 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. - February 25 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. - March 11 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. - March 24 6:30 - 7:30 p.m. - April 14 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. - April 29 6:30 - 7:30 p.m.
