Weight Loss Plan for Depression

Weight Loss Plan for Depression

Depression and obesity tends to co-exist in individuals. One causes the other, that is depression can lead to weight gain and people who are overweight are more likely to feel depressed. There are several reasons why these two conditions occur together. Research has shown that a similar genetics, alterations in hormone regulations, immune-inflammatory activation, energy metabolism, brain circuits and mood responses are noticed in both conditions.

It is also known that people who have depression are known to have reduced blood flow, altered glucose metabolism and generalised activity in the area of the brain, which controls our mood.

If untreated depression and weight gain may lead to sleep disorders, diabetes, high blood pressure, reduced mobility, coronary artery disease in addition to other psychological issues. People with these two conditions are more likely to avoid social interaction due to low self-esteem and poor confidence.

Some well known antidepressants medications are also known to promote or be linked with weight gain. People with depression struggle to lose weight due to several factors, which interfere with their metabolism. Most people with depression have tried several diets and regained weight.

In this plan, you will be assessed by a psychiatrist and also will be supported by a specialist weight management team including physicians, dietitians and simhappy experts. Based on your suitability we will also consider weaning off your antidepressants if our innovative rTMS (repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation) helps you. rTMS for the treatment of depression has been approved by NICE (National Institute of Clinical Excellence).
