Physical activity is an important component of weight management. At the clinic our goal is to have patients find an activity that they enjoy, and to incorporate this activity into their routine on a regular basis as much as they are able to for lifelong success.
Physical activity whether in the form of structured exercise or more walking is not only beneficial for weight management, but can also improve circulation, reduce stress and build physical and mental stamina. At the clinic we are able to provide simple ways by which to set exercise goals that are appropriate for each patient.
The aim is to reduce health risks, improve quality of life and have patients increase physical activity as much as they are able to while still enjoying life. For those wishing a more structured exercise program we have partnered with Sharky's gym to assist you with adopting a healthy fitness routine.
The physician at the TRIAD clinic will help you determine a healthy weight goal. The goal will be individualized and may need to be done in steps. The doctor will need to assess your overall medical health to determine if medication is right for you and to rule out medical causes of obesity.
The doctor will take a complete medical history, including all medication use. The doctor will help to identify common co-morbidities associated with obesity but will not manage those co-morbid conditions but will refer you back to your regular doctor. It is not the intention of the doctor to replace your regular doctor but to complement his/her care.
Dr. Chilvers will limit his care to the management of weight loss only and will be responsible for prescribing weight loss medication only. Often, as your weight comes down, this will likely improve any co-morbid obesity related medical condition that you may have.
The primary medication used at the Triad Weight Loss Clinic is Saxenda, a new medication specifically indicated and approved by Health Canada for assistance with weight loss. Dr.Chilvers considers Saxenda safe and effective for the right patient. All of Dr.Chilvers services are fully covered by OHIP.
