About Us

Meridian Weight Management Center

Obesity is defined by most experts as a Body Mass Index or BMI of 30 or greater. While this definition is not absolute, it is a starting place for most. Regardless of what number obesity starts at, the problem is undeniable. Obesity is related to some serious medical problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea, and heart disease. Besides the obvious killers, being overweight also contributes to other problems such as joint pain. The added stress to knees over prolonged periods of time takes a toll on the body.

Whether you fall into the obese or just overweight category, or if you have problems maintaining your desired weight, we can help. All it takes is one step through our door!
