Childhood Obesity

THERE IS A SOLUTION FOR YOUR CHILD’S OVERWEIGHT CONDITION
Is your child overweight? Are you tired of their tears, your concern and everyone’s frustration about the confusing information published on weight loss?

At Progressive Medical Center, we don’t promote fad diets, harmful supplements, or unrealistic calorie-restriction diets for adults, and they certainly are not appropriate for children. Instead, we test, we teach and we follow your child’s progress and share their success!

HELP YOUR CHILD MAINTAIN A HEALTHY WEIGHT
We are interested in balancing all the systems in the body to optimize metabolism. With skyrocketing rates of type 2 diabetes, obesity, heart disease, and high blood pressure, now is the time to thwart a life heavy with the threat of chronic disease.

“WHY AM I FAT, MOMMY?”

The reason your child may be struggling to lose weight may be tied to more than just their diet or exercise patterns. Progressive Medical Center uses a comprehensive approach to address the underlying causes of weight gain. We design a specialized program that ensures your child’s optimal nutrition, respects upcoming adolescent hormones and builds a firm foundation for a healthy metabolism.

We see many of the following reasons that people are unable to shed unhealthy pounds:

Poor food choices
Toxicity
Hormonal imbalance
Genetics
Lack of exercise
Nutritional deficiencies
Food allergies
Unhealthy gastrointestinal tract

DIAGNOSTIC TESTING FOR WEIGHT LOSS

Since not all people experience weight gain for the same reasons,  that’s why we run sophisticated diagnostic testing to help us understand a child’s unique biochemistry. Comprehensive laboratory evaluations at the cellular and metabolic level allow us to see inside the body- more so than other common laboratory tests.

These test results, in conjunction with details of your child’s health and lifestyle history, help your practitioner design an effective, customized treatment plan.

NUTRITION COUNSELING AND HEALTHY FOOD CHOICES
But what is the optimum healthy diet for your child? You might be surprised. Progressive Medical Center practitioners have science-based and health-based recommendations about healthy food choices that may not match up with advice you’ve heard in magazines or on television. Progressive Medical Center has experienced registered dietitians tailor the correct combination of foods that will be most beneficial to your growing child.
