HOW CAN CHRONIC DISEASES AFFECT WEIGHT LOSS?
Having a chronic disease may make weight loss more difficult. It is important to see a weight loss expert if you have a weight problem and also suffer from a chronic disease. Those with diabetes, high blood pressure, metabolic syndrome, or PCOS may need personalized nutritional and exercise plans. Additionally, those with a chronic disease who maintain a healthy weight may still need nutritional support in order to maintain a healthy weight long-term.
