The Heart Care Clinic has a dedicated Weight Reduction Unit (Obesity Clinic) based on ADA guidelines. Here the ideal management of patients is decided by many professionals like Doctors, Dietitians and Physiotherapist. Advice given is evidence based and never opinion based. Gradual weight reduction is encouraged. One can reduce weight up-to 3 kgs in one month and more if body responds well naturally, without regaining it back. After achieving ideal weight, counseling is given so that patients can maintain their ideal weight throughout their life. If rapid weight loss of more than 10% occurs without any efforts to reduce weight, please consult your doctor and get yourself checked.
