Patient comments:

If you think you are overweight, you should try hard to reduce your body weight because many overweight people have other risk factors, such as high blood pressure, abnormal blood cholesterol, diabetes, etc. But do it the right way, through controlling your diet and exercising - don’t fall for the diet pills and other “lose weight fast!” schemes you see on TV.
