What are Weight Loss Doctors?

Heart attacks, joint problems, diabetes and many other conditions are risk factors for people who are overweight. Sometimes people have trouble losing weight on their own, so they must enlist help from their doctor. General practitioners or family doctors are usually where the journey to weight loss begins. They can refer the patient to other weight loss specialists when needed. General practitioners can recommend appropriate diet and exercises for losing weight, but obese patients will need to seek out bariatric physicians, an endocrinologist or a nutritionist.
