Weight Health Assessment


Dr Penny Figtree, as an experienced GP with an interest in obesity/diabetes and insulin resistance, will do a health assessment focusing on metabolic health. It is important to check for underlying issues related to your weight such as thyroid dysfunction, polycystic ovarian syndrome, depression and medications causing obesity .

Dr Penny Figtree will arrange blood tests including your insulin level, thyroid function, liver tests and diabetes markers. It is always very rewarding when we repeat the tests at 2 months to see the great improvement in these biomarkers. Often the weight loss is exciting but the overall health improvement and feeling of energy and well being is even better.
