For adults, a BMI of under 18.5 is underweight, 18.5 to 24.9 is healthy, 25.0 to 29.9 is overweight, and 30.0 and over is obese. In HWS, patients can keep track of their BMI with one of our clinic-assigned weight scales.


Blood pressure monitor. An API device with which patients can take daily readings of their blood pressure. A blood pressure reading will show two numbers. Systolic pressure (the first number) measures the pressure in the arteries when the heart is actively beating. Diastolic pressure is the pressure in the arteries when the heart rests in between beats. A normal blood pressure level is less than 120/80 mmHg.



Coronary artery disease. Among the most common forms of heart disease afflicting Americans today. CAD is the buildup of plaque in the arteries that supply oxygen-rich blood to your heart, and the resulting narrowing and blocking of arteries can lead to a heart attack. There are three main types of CAD: obstructive, nonobstructive, and microvascular.
