Child Weight Management

Child Weight Management in Rockville, MD

At Gold Pediatrics we are very aware of the weight epidemic problem and the weight related health problems that families are facing. Weight related health problems include such things as diabetes, liver disease, high cholesterol, and poor self-esteem. We know the difficulties parents face when trying to provide healthy meals and healthy lifestyles for their children.

We will take the time necessary to help parents and children make the necessary changes to control their weight and maintain healthy lifestyles.

How to Manage My Child’s Weight

If your child is overweight or obese, you should be concerned about their health. This is when teaming up with our pediatrician Dr. Douglas can provide you with expert advice and strategies. Diet and exercise are typically the two main focuses when achieving successful weight loss for kids.

What to Expect

When you come in for a weight management appointment with Dr. Douglas, the first thing we will do is record their height and weight. From there, we will review your child’s medical history and decide whether we should perform blood work. We will identify behavioral changes that need to be made to manage your child’s weight better. We may refer your child to a dietitian to help them make healthier food choices for long-term weight loss success.

If you are concerned about your child’s weight, please contact Gold Pediatrics at (301) 517-9710 to schedule a consultation.
