Studies show it’s easier to lose weight with help. At Sutter Medical Foundation, we offer nutrition counseling and a variety of weight loss classes and medically supervised programs to help you improve your health and reach your weight loss goals.
Programs in select locations offer you the opportunity to:
- Set collaborative goals with a provider trained in weight loss to help you meet your personal health and weight loss goals.
- Significantly reduce your risk of type 2 diabetes and other chronic health conditions, including high blood pressure, heart disease and weight-related cancers.
- Lower cholesterol and glucose levels, blood pressure and associated health risks.
To meet your individual needs, we offer a variety of weight loss tools and approaches in individual and group medical appointments. Our comprehensive weight loss programs offer medications to help manage your weight, and meal replacement products with medical supervision.
We also offer bariatric surgery and are accredited as a Center of Excellence by the American College of Surgeons and the American Society for Metabolic and and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement Program (MBSAQIP®).
In addition to weight loss, past participants in our programs have seen significant improvements in health outcomes, including reduced blood sugar and cholesterol levels, improved energy and mobility, improved fertility and more.
Our classes offer practical, problem-solving techniques to create a positive eating and activity environment for the whole family.
In certain situations, your health plan may cover some of the costs of a formal weight management program. Check with your health plan for details.
