MORGANTOWN -

For the first time ever, the American Medical Association stated that obesity is a disease.

The Akkary practice in Morgantown specializes in weight loss procedures.

Dr. Ehab Akkary held a diet class, seminar and group meeting discussing healthy eating and living. He said these things are directly connected to other serious health problems.

"A lot of times, these patients have these medical problems because of the weight," said Dr. Akkary. "And if we give them the right tool to lose the weight, they might not diabetic anymore, they might reduce blood pressure, they might lose the knee pain that they walk and suffer from every day or the chronic back pain."

The groups are usually held once a month. If you want to know more about Akkary, visit the practice's website.
