Medical Devices that Treat Obesity: What to Know

If your health care provider finds that you’re overweight or obese, you’re not alone. More than 68 percent of U.S. adults are considered overweight, according to federal statistics. And close to 36 percent of those are considered obese.
Obesity is linked to health issues like heart disease, diabetes, and high blood pressure. And since losing weight starts with healthy eating and exercise, your health care provider can give advice on lifestyle changes that can help.
