More Numbers

Recently, the clinic has added a calculation of the body mass  index (BMI) to the vital signs displayed for patients during their clinic  visit.  The BMI is a calculation of weight status which is based upon  weight and height.  Patient will notice this number being displayed on  reports that they receive during their appointment.  Also, patient may be  asked about their diet and amount of exercise performed to coincide with an  elevated BMI.  It is hoped that by raising awareness of weight, obesity,  poor diet and the lack of exercise advances in good health can be  achieved.  We continue to offer assistance with weight loss with dieticians  through Sioux Falls and the MOVE program.  Feel free to stop by or call to  request an appointment to discuss weight loss options.
