Health Tip: Talking to Your Doctor About Weight

Health Tip: Talking to Your Doctor About Weight

11/06/12

(HealthDay News) -- It can be embarrassing to talk with your doctor about weight. But he or she can help you choose a weight-loss plan, including specifics on any diet or lifestyle changes you'll need to make.

The Weight-Control Information Network offers these pointers for a weight-loss discussion between you and your physician:

  • Prepare a list of questions before your visit and bring them with you. Bring a pen and paper to take notes.
  • Ask a loved one to come with you for support.
  • Be sure you clearly understand what your physician recommends. Ask questions if you need clarification.
  • Ask the doctor to provide brochures or websites for more information.
  • Ask for a referral to a registered dietitian, weight-loss program or support group.
