A recent study about weight loss, by Dr. Samuel Klein at Washington University School of Medicine,  has discovered that even relatively moderate weight loss can lead to significant health gains.

Presently patients are encouraged to lose between 5% and 10% of their weight to experience positive health effects. This latest study, which focused on 40 obese individuals, shows that losing just 5% can improve insulin sensitivity, blood pressure and triglyceride levels.

The Hospital Council of Northwest Ohio reported in 2014 that 36 % of Lucas County adults were obese. Those who may need assistance are encouraged to visit the website for information on healthy living, hcno.org
