Community Health: Myths About Weight Loss, Obesity & Metabolic Disorders
17 February 2020
As part of our Community Health Partnership with Valley Health, we were in the studio today with Rick Northcraft, board certified Family Nurse Practitioner and certified Bariatric Nurse with the Valley Health Metabolic & Bariatric Program.
We talked about metabolic disorders; the difference between being overweight vs. being obese; how to determine your body mass index (BMI); plus, we discussed factors that affect weight gain (and weight loss) and treatment options regardless of your weight loss goal.
