The Lakeland Comprehensive Weight Loss Center specializes in working with each person to create a customized lifestyle plan, including medical weight loss management through diet or bariatric surgery, nutrition counseling, individualized exercise programs, and monthly support groups.</span></p> <p class="p3"> <span class="s1">According to the National Center for Health Statistics, about 190 million adults in the United States are overweight and obese. Individuals more than 40% overweight are twice as likely to die prematurely as someone of average weight. However, the good news is that losing as little as 5-15% of your initial body weight can reduce your risk of diabetes and other illnesses, and can even eliminate your need for some medications.</span></p> <p class="p3"> <span class="s1">For more information or to register for the seminar, call (269) 687-4673 or (877) 467-3858.

JOSEPH) &ndash; Lakeland Orthopedic Physical Therapy is now enrolling participants for Bones in Balance, a four-week program designed to teach those diagnosed with osteoporosis and osteopenia how to successfully live with these conditions through self-management.

The program includes valuable self-management tips from a pharmacist, registered dietitian, nurse educator, and counselor.&nbsp;</span></p> <p class="p3"> <span class="s1">Classes meet twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays for a four-week period at the Center for Outpatient Services, located at 3900 Hollywood Road in St. Joseph.

Osteoporosis is commonly referred to as &ldquo;the silent disease,&rdquo; because bone loss occurs without any visible symptoms at first. Many people don&rsquo;t realize they have osteoporosis until their bones are so weak that the smallest strain or fall causes a bone to fracture.</span></p> <p class="p3"> <span class="s1">A physician&rsquo;s order is required to participate. There is a $25 registration fee to cover the cost of materials; the remaining amount is billable to your insurance.
