Diet Doc now offering a nationwide telemedicine hCG weight loss program in an effort to help cut projected healthcare costs that are estimated at $2.7 trillion by 2030 according to recent reports.
The obesity epidemic in America has been steadily growing over the last decade with no end in sight it seems. A new report from the Trust for America’s Health and Robert Wood Johnson Foundation called the “F as in Fat: How Obesity Threatens America’s Future in 2012″ is giving a glimpse into how fat Americans will be in the next 18 years. The report states that with the current upward trend in obesity rates, by 2030, 13 states could have adult obesity rates above 60 percent, 39 states could have rates above 50 percent and all states could have rates above 44 percent. Building on data from the latest reports from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the report also calculates that $66 billion in annual obesity-related medical costs will be added to today’s average medical costs that are between $147 billion to $210 billion estimating total U.S. healthcare spending at $2.7 trillion over the next 18 years.
Obesity raises the risk of a number of diseases, from certain types of cancer to type 2 diabetes, which will be the cause of higher healthcare costs for all. It seems the only way to avoid the problem is to take the sage advice of eating healthy and staying active. Although seemingly simple, most need to be re-educated on the fundamentals of what a healthy diet consists of.
Diet Doc medical hCG weight loss program has been successful in showing dieters how to eat right while working towards a healthy weight. And in response to the Trust for America’s Health report, they have now made this popular weight loss program available nationwide using the latest internet applications. Dieters from all over the country can meet with their integrative team of doctors, nurses, nutritionists and health advisors via Skype and various other applications. Doctors will first connect face-to-face with dieters to assess their needs. A nutritionist will then create a diet plan specific to him/her and a nurse will show how to properly incorporate the hCG treatments into their daily routine. “Meeting face-to-face via the internet is almost the same as meeting in person,” says Dr. Rao, Medical Director for Diet Doc. “Obviously it lacks the human touch, which is not necessary for dieters, and all of our patients prefer this over driving to a clinic because it saves them time and trouble of having to come in once a week.” Diet Doc has reported that some of their patients are losing up to 14 pounds in two weeks and attributes the success to the new mode of communication.
Diet Doc hCG weight loss program is seen by health critics as a natural alternative to weight loss surgery or even weight loss pills. And, with the rising trend in obesity, most will agree that taking preventative measures, like losing weight, can help this growing problem and will even cut healthcare costs. Diet Doc Founder and CEO, Julie Wright says “we have always looked at our weight loss program to be a preventative health measure for those who are overweight. But given the new statistics, our efforts have also turned to help those who are obese get to a healthy weight and to put as many Americans as we can on track to a healthy life.”
