How Effective is SculpSure Body Contouring?
(http://ow.ly/45bO30ntpOT)

A healthy diet and exercise are essential if you’re trying to be healthy, but they alone may not be enough help you achieve the body type you desire. SculpSure body contouring is a safe, noninvasive method that targets and destroys fat using laser heat treatments. Most patients see a reduction in fat within six weeks, with full results evident within 12 weeks. Once the fat cells are gone, they cannot regenerate, so the results are permanent!

How is Congestive Heart Failure Diagnosed?
(http://ow.ly/ZBHW30ntpOS)

If you or a loved one has high blood pressure or coronary artery disease, you may be at risk for congestive heart failure, a problem with the heart’s ability to pump blood effectively. Based on your symptoms and physical exam, your doctor may order blood tests to see if they are signs of disease. Following that, several diagnostic tests may be scheduled, including an X-ray to check out the condition of your heart and lungs.

What are the Dangers of Being Overweight?
(http://ow.ly/iMAf30ntpOQ)

Carrying extra weight may not be viewed as aesthetically pleasing to some, but more importantly, it can endanger your health. Being overweight puts you at risk for chronic conditions including diabetes, heart disease, cancer, metabolic diseases, and arthritis. It can also affect your quality of sleep, psychological health, and daily activity. While diet and exercise can help, if they alone aren’t providing results, a medical weight loss program may help.

Type 2 Diabetes Risk Factors
(http://ow.ly/TpCi30n4Z7U)

You are at risk for prediabetes if you are African American, Hispanic/Latino American, American Indian, or Alaska Native, overweight, 45 years old or older and physically active less than three days a week. If a parent, brother or sister has diabetes, you’re also at higher risk for diabetes. That said, with some lifestyle changes, such as eating a healthier diet, exercising more and losing excess weight, you can prevent or at least delay type 2 diabetes.

Risk Factors for Congestive Heart Failure
(http://ow.ly/rBr230n4Z7T)

A serious, long-term condition, congestive heart failure is more likely to develop as you age, but can strike anyone at any time. Certain conditions, like diabetes, high blood pressure, and coronary artery disease, put you at a higher risk for CHF, along with being too overweight and a past heart attack. Drinking too much alcohol, smoking and the use of drugs can also put you at a higher risk for heart failure.
