Dr. Erin Saltzman’s Personal Story

Dr. Saltzman’s passion for Medical Weight Loss and Bariatric Medicine stems from her own life-long struggle with her weight. Despite trying many different diets and exercise programs, she would ultimately regain the weight she had worked so hard to lose. She understands the frustration of the seemingly endless cycle of weight loss and weight regain. During her medical training, Dr. Saltzman studied the physiology of weight gain and obesity. She feels strongly that uncontrolled weight gain and obesity are medical conditions in their own right. Weight gain does not occur only because of a lack of willpower but from a combination of genetics, hormonal imbalances, life stressors and environmental factors. Losing weight can be extremely difficult when trying to overcome these factors, and then keeping the lost weight off can be even more challenging. Significant weight gain and obesity increase a person’s risk for developing weight-related conditions including: type 2 diabetes, hypertension, elevated cholesterol and polycystic ovarian syndrome.

As an endocrinologist, Dr. Saltzman has treated many patients with such medical conditions over the years. Her treatment approach has evolved to help patients lose weight in order to improve, and sometimes resolve, these medical conditions. Using her vast knowledge and experience, she has helped hundreds of patients successfully lose weight and maintain that healthier weight. Her patients’ weight loss success inspired her own weight loss journey. To pay it forward, Dr. Saltzman has joined La Chelé Medical with a mission to help patients to become the healthiest version of themselves.
