Episode #07: The Canary in the Coal Mine (and how GI physicians can help fight the obesity epidemic)

Dr. Naresh Gunaratnam of Huron Gastroenterology recognized that many of the GI diseases he treats in his community are specifically related to obesity, and that as a GI physician he had the opportunity to see and combat these disease before they became too serious.

In an effort to combat obesity and help his patients manage their weight, Dr. Gunaratnam developed the HG Wellness program, an evidence-based weight management program in his practice based on four pillars: nutrition, fitness, sleep and stress management strategies.

Join Dr. Gunaratnam to hear how a majority of patients in his program have lost more than 10 percent of body weight, an outcome that is associated with health benefits, such as improvements in blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugars.
