Diet Doc Introduces Customized Medical Weight Loss Programs that Target and Attack Stored Fat Leading to a Reduced Breast Cancer Risk

Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 15, 2014

Although there is no direct scientific evidence that being overweight or obese actually causes breast cancer, it is thought that the rate at which women are diagnosed with this deadly disease does increase after menopause and that, those who are overweight or obese, have a much higher risk factor than women of a normal, healthy weight. This increased risk is likely due to higher levels of estrogen, since fat tissue is the largest source of estrogen in post-menopausal women. While many breast cancer risk factors are out of ones control, such as age and family history, American women can reduce their breast cancer risk by consuming less fatty and processed foods and maintaining a healthy weight, as well as losing excess fat.

Women nationwide, who are interested in reducing their breast cancer risk, have turned to Diet Docs doctor supervised, medical weight loss programs. New patients can begin by completing an online health questionnaire and scheduling a consultation with one of Diet Docs highly trained medical weight loss doctors. The nations only medical weight loss program to partner with Telemedicine, Diet Doc patients are now able to choose the best health care and weight loss providers from anywhere in the country without leaving the comfort of their own home.

During an online consultation, the patient and the doctor will begin developing the best method of weight loss based on each womans age, health history, current medical conditions, lifestyle and food preferences. This personalized approach to weight loss has, not only helped thousands of women over the initial weight loss hurdles, but has assisted them in maintaining their weight long term.

Diet Doc understands that sticking with diet plans can be challenging and that many of the negative side effects can sometimes sabotage the best laid diet plans. With this in mind, Diet Doc created their hormone treatments and customized medical weight loss diet plans that, not only target and force stored fat out of the cells and into the bloodstream to be quickly burned and flushed from the system, but enables their patients to overcome cravings, between meal hunger and loss of energy during dieting. Progress is consistently monitored throughout to ensure that the patient is able to quickly and safely lose weight. This direct and personal contact quickly alerts the doctors of weight loss plateaus, enabling them to alter the prescription hormone treatments to reset the metabolism and increase the rate that the patient is able to see fat melting from their body.

Within days of beginning the medical weight loss programs, Diet Doc patients are reporting the very noticeable loss of pounds and inches from the hard to reach places, such as the belly, underarms, hips, buttocks and thighs. In fact, a recent in-house survey, which included over 25,000 actual Diet Doc patients, reported that the majority lost up to 20 pounds per month.

Statistics Reveal That the Number of ‘Older’ First-Time Mothers Is Growing

Santa Rosa, California (PRWEB) September 21, 2014

According to latest National Vital Statistics Reports women aged 4044 experienced the highest birth rate since 1966 (10.5 births per 1,000 women in 2013). Since 2000, the rate for women in their early 40s has risen steadily by 2 percent per year. The birth rate for women aged 4549 (which includes births to women aged 50 and over) also rose, the first such increase since 2008. Ultimately the data reveals that there were more than nine times as many first births to women aged 35 and older than there were just four decades ago. Perhaps ironically, among women under the age of 30, and even more so – those under 20, first births have actually declined.

Although there are risks associated with waiting to have children, one study conducted in the UK showed that children born to mothers who are over 40 actually tend to have higher IQs and a greater vocabulary. Those children were also less likely to require hospitalization or have accidents. It was theorized that older parents are likely more vigilant and better able to help children avoid dangers. Other studies on the subject showed that women who delay motherhood actually live longer than those who give birth at younger ages. And studies consistently show that older mothers are typically better educated than young mothers.

Pregnancy and Childbirth Considerations for Older Women

After the age of 35 it may take longer for women to get pregnant due to a decrease in quantity and quality of eggs, and an overall reduction in the rate of fertilization. The chance of having twins also increases with age, particularly when the use of assisted reproductive technologies such as in vitro fertilization comes into play. Older women are more likely to develop gestational diabetes which can complicate the development of the fetus if not monitored closely by an OBGYN healthcare provider. Gestational diabetes predominately affects older women and occurs only during pregnancy. Research also points to an increased likelihood of high blood pressure developing during pregnancy. The chances of low birth weight and a premature birth are also typically greater among older mothers.

Pregnancy-related complications that might lead to a C-section delivery is statistically more prevalent in older mothers. The risk of chromosome abnormalities such as Down syndrome is also higher. And finally, the risk of pregnancy loss due to miscarriage and stillbirth as a result of a pre-existing medical condition or fetal chromosomal abnormalities also increases as women get older.

Preparing Before Conception Helps to Ensure a Healthy Pregnancy

The Womens OBGYN Medical Group of providers emphasizes to patients that the choices all mothers, and particularly older mothers make before conception can have a lasting effect on the health of both the mother and the baby. Parents who are considering having a baby no matter what age are encouraged to schedule an appointment with an OBGYN physician or certified nurse midwife to take advantage of expert guidance from the start. Topics to discuss with your physician prior to becoming pregnant include:

Alcohol, tobacco, and caffeine use
Birth control
Diet and exercise
Environmental concerns
Family histories and Genetics
Medical problems/concerns
Medications and Vitamins

The Womens OBGYN Medical Group of Santa Rosa suggests talking to a healthcare provider about overall health and lifestyle changes that might improve the chances for a healthy pregnancy as well as concerns about fertility or pregnancy will help get prospective parents off on the right foot. An OBGYN healthcare specialist will be able to advise parents about steps that can be taken to increase the odds of conception as well as options if there is trouble conceiving. Continuing prenatal visits will allow the healthcare provider to keep an eye on both the mothers and the baby’s health.

Staying Healthy During Pregnancy

All expectant mothers require more folic acid, calcium, iron, vitamin D as well as other essential nutrients. A healthy diet is imperative as is a daily prenatal vitamin – commencing a few months before conception – is also recommended. Regular physical activity can help increase energy levels and improve overall health during pregnancy. It can also help prepare for labor and childbirth by increasing stamina and muscle strength. Avoiding alcohol, tobacco and recreational drugs is imperative, while any medications or supplements need to be reviewed by an OBGYN healthcare provider in advance.

Prenatal testing for chromosomal abnormalities is also something older women may want to consider. Noninvasive prenatal tests include a blood test that scans fetal DNA in the maternal bloodstream to determine whether the baby is at risk of certain specific chromosomal abnormalities. Diagnostic tests such as chorionic villus sampling and amniocentesis provide additional information about the baby’s chromosomes or the risk of specific chromosomal abnormalities, but also carry a slight risk of miscarriage. A healthcare provider can help parents weigh the risks and benefits.

Based on this index, Nudge provides users with health recommendations and sets feasible goals based on studies and recommendations from the United States Department of Agriculture, Center of Disease Control and World Health Organization as well as applied research from an in-house advisory team of sports and health professionals.

This index allows users to compare themselves to other users through social media, including Facebook or the Nudge community and its various clubs offering the opportunity for healthy competition as a nudge to a healthier lifestyle.

Co-founded by Mac Gambill, Phil Beene and Chris Garson, Nudge plans to use its patent-pending algorithm to connect consumer health data to healthcare professionals, bridging the disconnect between big health data and the fragmented health tracking market.
