What health problems am I at risk for as a woman?

Women have different health risks from men, many of which are related to female hormones and body composition. Women are at a higher risk for osteoporosis and iron deficiency anemia, both of which can be improved through nutrition counseling.

Women also have a higher risk for certain cancers, including breast, cervical, and ovarian cancers. Regular breast exams and Pap smears are important screening tools that can detect abnormal changes.

Your doctor will offer vaccinations, including vaccines to protect against the human papillomavirus, which can cause cervical cancer.

How can nutritional counseling help women?

With nutritional counseling and food allergy testing, your doctor can let you know if you are lacking certain nutrients or have allergies that may be contributing to weight gain or bloating.

Women can also find it difficult to lose weight because of hormonal fluctuations. Your doctor can order specialized blood testing if hormonal issues appear to be causing problems for you. With a proper diagnosis, your doctor can create a personalized weight loss plan and provide the support you need to make healthy lifestyle changes.

How can I look my best?

If you’re following a healthy diet and are exercising regularly, yet you’re struggling to get rid of stubborn fat, you may benefit from the SculpSure® body contouring system. The laser targets trouble spots, such as your abdomen, thighs, hips, and back, to spot-reduce fat in those places. The procedure is quick, painless, and there is no downtime.
