CROSSLAKE — Essentia Health St. Joseph’s-Crosslake Clinic will offer new medical weight-management services starting Monday, Jan. 9

A person’s primary care doctor may recommend medical weight-management services to prevent disease or to improve weight-related conditions like type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, fatty liver, sleep apnea and more.

Essentia’s medical weight-management specialists will develop individualized weight-loss plans that help with making healthy food choices, sleep optimization, exercise needs, behavior changes and medication when clinically indicated, according to a news release.

“The practice of medical weight management is central to my clinical interests in the treatment of diabetes, obesity and other chronic conditions relating to insulin resistance,” Dr. Jeremiah Eisenschenk, a medical weight-management specialist at Essentia, said in a news release.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.

Hi, I'm the Brainerd Dispatch. I started working a few days before Christmas in 1881 and became a daily paper two years later. I've gone through a lot of changes over the years, but what has never changed is my commitment to community and to local journalism. I've got an entire team of dedicated people who work night and day to make sure I go out every morning, whether in print, as an e-edition, via an app or with additional information at www.brainerddispatch.com. News, weather, sports — videos, photos, podcasts and social media — all covering stories from central Minnesota about your neighbors, your lakes, your communities, your challenges and your opportunities. It's all part of the effort to keep people connected and informed. And we couldn't do it without support.
