Latest News

Deadly like Head Trauma the N. F. L.’s other new Scourge is Obesity. 

While we all enjoyed Super Bowl and look forward to it every year, Live Light Live Right is concerned about some recent scientific finding affecting these competitive athletes. This article in the New York Times highlights the major risk that former NFL lineman who have bulked up in order to be competitive Quarterbacks, now face related to obesity.

The consequences can be dire. A study published in The American Journal of Medicine found that for every 10 pounds football players gained from high school to college, or from college to the professional level, the risk of heart disease rose 14 percent compared with players whose weight changed little during the same period.

They are also at risk for Sleep Apnea, Diabetes, chronic pain, and injuries. It is very hard for these once strong men to face these disabilities and to lose enough weight to improve their health. The body fights back and holds on to the fat stores

We at Live Light Live Right understand that Obesity is a chronic debilitating disease and evaluate athletes and youth at risk for obesity or who are already obese. Our 4 part model offers them a comprehensive medical evaluation including cardiac evaluation with an exercise stress test if necessary, work up for risk factors which are present as early as 10 years of age and a lifestyle program including nutritional guidance and a supervised exercise program.

We emphasize fitness as a goal and avoidance of weight gain as once obesity sets in the complications continue to progress and are difficult to reverse.

For more information or for an obesity evaluation please contact Dr. Dhuper’s office or the Live Light Live Right program at 718-221-1598.
