Cholesterol
There's a lot of news about cholesterol these days, and with good reason. High cholesterol contributes to heart disease, which kills more Americans than all cancers combined. A regular exercise routine and good eating habits — along with medication if your doctor recommends it — can keep cholesterol levels under control and lower your risk of heart disease.
Obesity and Bariatric Surgery
If you’re more than 100 pounds overweight, bariatric surgery may be the solution for you. Use this center to learn about the different types of procedures and the risks and benefits of each.
