Please read carefully the following health notices:
We also urge you to get periodic medical checkups. Weight loss can create physical changes that should be medically monitored. Studies have shown, for example, that weight management can aggravate gall bladder illness. Weight loss is not advised for people with BMI below the healthy range. Medical monitoring is especially important for people with a known medical condition. The Complement Well app encourages a healthier pattern of eating and the development of healthy lifestyle habits, however, it is not intended to treat any illness or disease. In addition:
- Complement prohibits participation in its weight management and wellness program for children under the age of 18, individuals who have been diagnosed with or treated for anorexia nervosa or bulimia nervosa in the last year, and individuals who are pregnant.
- If you are being treated for a medical condition, taking prescription medication, or following a therapeutic diet to treat a disease, it’s especially important to show the Complement Well program to your health care provider. Any modifications made to the plan by your health care provider should be followed.
- We recommend that you monitor your weight once per week. If your weight falls below guidelines for a healthy weight, you must review the Complement Well guidelines and adapt them to maintain a healthy weight, in collaboration with a licensed health professional. Complement also recommends that you regularly discuss your goals for participating in Complement Well with your health care provider.
