Medical weight loss programs help individuals who need to lose significant amounts of weight to improve their health. Some of these people have diabetes, thyroid disease, or other complicating conditions. The expertise of weight loss experts can help get the pounds off and keeping them off safely.
Here’s what to expect with a medical weight loss program at Diabetes & Weight Loss Center.
Personalized Evaluation and Treatment
No two individuals have identical body chemistry or lifestyle habits. So, a medical weight loss evaluation begins with an in-depth assessment of your:
- Physical condition, including height, weight, BMI, and other measures
- Exercise habits and fitness level
- Daily routines and responsibilities
- Habits, such as food intake, alcohol consumption, smoking, and more
With this information in hand, your provider will work closely with you to set weight loss and fitness goals and to plan meals that will reduce caloric intake, increase nutrients, and produce gradual, sustainable results. Any medical issues, such as diabetes, can also will be addressed. Our patients are enabled to view weight loss and better health as truly achievable and maintainable for the long term.
Accountability and Coaching
Medical weight loss is never a solo effort. At Diabetes & Weight Loss Center, our team stays in close contact with each weight loss patient, providing the tips and encouragement needed to stay on track. Our providers celebrate achievement of small goals and help people keep going on their weight and fitness journeys.
Medical Weight Loss Medications (If Needed)
Many of our patients need a little help with appetite suppression. They need to feel fuller longer in order to stay with their sensible meal plans. Plus, when a person’s metabolism has poorly functioned for an extended period of time, medication can help put it back on track, so the patient’s efforts actually work.
One of the medications we use is a glucagon-like peptide, or GLP-1. Wegovy is a weekly-injectable GLP-1. This FDA-approved peptide assists blood sugar regulation and:
- Decreases the time it takes for the stomach to empty
- Works on the brain to suppress the urge to eat (lessens appetite)
- Helps you feel fuller longer
Typically, people who use Wegovy as directed, along with a fitness and nutrition program, lose more weight than individuals who do not use this medication.
Feel Better About Yourself
People who take on the challenge of medical weight loss in a supervised setting end up losing more weight, getting fit, and keeping those pounds off for the long haul. As such, they feel increased self-confidence, not only because they look and feel better, but because they can do things they were unable to do while they were heavy.
