“Although, your health condition may impact your everyday life, do not let it define who you are.” This fact booklet provides information on weight-loss dietary supplements, including summaries of research on the safety and efficacy of several of the most commonly used ingredients in these products. More than two-third of adults and almost one-third of children and adolescents in the United States are overweight or obese. Forty-five percent of overweight Americans and 67% of those who are obese are trying to lose weight. Health experts agree that making lifestyle changes—including following a healthy eating pattern, reducing caloric intake, and engaging in physical activity—is the basis for achieving long-term weight loss. But because making diet and lifestyle changes can be difficult, many people turn to dietary supplements promoted for weight loss in the hope that these products will help them more easily achieve their weight-loss goals. People who are considering using weight-loss supplements should talk with their health care provider to discuss these products’ potential benefits and risks. This is especially important for those who have medical conditions, including high blood pressure, diabetes, or heart disease. Yet according to a large national survey, less than one-third of U.S. adults who use weight-loss dietary supplements discuss this use with a health care professional. Thanks and may you have a good understanding about this fact booklet—Weight Loss Supplements. You may want to share this book with your family and friends who may be in need of help and would want to use this medicine. Take care, and as always, be well!
