The Healthy Dimensions workshops and website provide education on options to assist in losing weight and improving overall health. You are responsible for your own choices about which options to adopt. You must consider your choices carefully and should obtain advice from trusted healthcare providers about any concerns.
Participants who are taking medications MUST be managed by a physician. Rapid weight loss and relief of water retention may drastically reduce the appropriate dose for anti-diabetic and anti-hypertensive drugs. Blood pressure or blood sugar could become dangerously low. The effectiveness and safety of other medications may also change with weight loss. You take full responsibility for discussing this program and weight loss goals with your physician and for arranging for adequate follow-up with your physician for potential changes in medication doses.
Persons with kidney disease may not be able follow the standard dietary recommendations in this program. If you have been diagnosed with kidney disease, you must identify to the Healthy-Dimensions leader that you have this diagnosis and agree to not make any dietary changes that are not clearly supported by your physician.
