PROBLEMS WITH OBESITY AND OTHER HEALTH ISSUES

Patient N.A., aware of his overweight, has observed other health issues over the years, including breathing interruptions during the night or obstructive sleep apnea, acid reflux from the stomach into the esophagus, and a burning sensation behind the sternum. In the last six months, he has experienced elevated blood pressure accompanied by headaches, fatigue, and an increased pulse.

“I started gaining weight in my thirties. It resulted from an unhealthy and improper diet, involving frequent consumption of foods rich in sugars and frequent eating in the late hours. At that time, I believed there was no need to take any steps to reduce weight. However, as other health problems emerged, such as high blood pressure, frequent headaches, heartburn, and waking up from sleep due to breathing interruptions, I decided to seek help at the Center for Internal Medicine, Srce.” – N.A.

After defining the symptoms, an integrated approach was undertaken for the patient to establish an individualized nutritional program with added supplementation and medications to help reduce weight and address the resulting health conditions.

SOLUTION FOR WEIGHT REDUCTION AND ACHIEVING OPTIMAL HEALTH

Several tests and analyses were conducted on the patient, including:

  • Nutritional examination
  • Evaluation of metabolic status
  • Analyses of the body composition with InBody 720 analyzer
  • Food intolerance for over 250 types of food using the bioresonant method
  • Consultations with nutritionists and doctors, specialists

These analyses were done to establish an appropriate diet, a plan for physical activity, and suitable therapy for the patient involving medication. In addition to the diet, the patient also required therapy with included antihypertensive medication.

“A relief came when I realized that I could improve my health and reduce body weight with proper therapy, diet, and physical activity. The diet was easy to follow and satisfied my appetite. I began feeling the change immediately, not in weight loss but in my overall mood and self-confidence. The most challenging part was motivating myself to exercise, but over time, especially after the initial results of the control examination, I became more inspired than ever.” – N.A.

THE RESULTS

After implementing dietary measures, increased physical activity, and appropriate therapy, patient N.A. successfully reduced body weight by 15 kg within 2 months. Furthermore, he no longer complains of breathing interruptions during the night or reflux of gastric acid into the esophagus. During the last control examination, the patient’s blood pressure was measured within optimal values with a halved dose of antihypertensive therapy.

“Every day, I strive to be better than the previous one, which means adhering to the dietary regimen and continuing with physical activity to maintain the reduced body weight and even lose more weight. I hope to inspire everyone who wants to reduce excess weight and improve their health.” – N.A.

After achieving these results, the patient periodically visits the Department of Dietetics and Dietotherapy for follow-up examinations to monitor the progress in weight reduction and maintenance of optimal health.
