In the case of nutritional or metabolic problems, the work of the doctors is complemented by the work of the nutritionist. Dr. Paul Drago assists and guides patients in obtaining a healthy diet according to their characteristics.
To determine the best nutritional treatment for each person, he first identifies the cause of excess weight, which can include bad habits, environmental influences, and psychiatric or organic disorders.
People believe it is a matter of bad habits, that the person eats a lot, does not exercise, and stops counting. But the truth is that inadequate weight influences many situations. It has a genetic aspect, but it is also due to environmental aspects such as the medications the person takes and even the culture in which they are immersed. And that’s where Dr. Paul Drago becomes his ideal ally.
To understand all the variables playing in his overweight and obesity, the patient must see him holistically. The approach should include experts in psychology because sometimes the issue of obesity and being overweight is influenced by symptoms of depression and anxiety that lead you to eat more.
Offers personalized diets
Dr. Paul Drago does a metabolic profile after doing tests and a profile of his health. By this, the specialist makes a personalized and specific diet that leads him to adhere to it, translating over time into permanent life changes. The problem in many countries is that obesity and overweight do not have their sufferer, and that happens because it is not considered a health problem.
Helps change your lifestyle
Obesity occurs when caloric intake exceeds energy expenditure in a sustained manner, so simple and complicated simultaneously. More and more studies show the genetic origin of obesity.
Dr. Paul Drago points out those patients with asymptomatic obesity, without metabolic involvement and comorbidities, should not wait until they reach the situation of morbid obesity. He advocates offering them personalized attention aimed at changing their lifestyle.
