Obesity Statistics

Obesity affected 37% of the Wisconsin adult population in 2022

MObesity can impact physical health as well as metabolic and cardiovascular health. It has been known to cause many other chronic conditions such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol. With preventative management, many of these conditions can be avoided and treated by treating the root cause – obesity.

Medications can be challenging to obtain and require medical management by an HMW physician. It’s also critical to use these medications appropriately for lasting outcomes by combining them with appropriate diet and exercise programs.
