Many people find that traditional methods of losing weight, such as diets, exercise, drugs and medically supervised weight loss programs, don’t work for them. Genetics and other factors can make traditional weight loss programs ineffective for some people.

Over time, obesity can lead to other dangerous health conditions, including diabetes, high blood pressure and cardiovascular disease.
