Obesity Comorbidities Clinic
Children who have obesity and overweight are predisposed to develop a variety of health problems which may require evaluations by multiple specialists. We have developed the obesity comorbidities clinic to provide care for most obesity complications and nutrition counseling in a single visit.
Most common problems associated with obesity for which we offer treatment are:
- Diabetes and pre-diabetes
- High blood pressure
- Sleep apnea
- Cholesterol and lipids abnormalities
- Fatty liver
- Orthopedic problems, for example bowed legs, pain on knees, hips or feet
- Early puberty
- Hormone disorders that cause irregular periods, excess of hair and severe acne.
