Weight Loss Q & A

What is medically supervised weight loss?

Medically supervised weight loss plans typically include high-quality nutritional supplements and medications that can curb your appetite. They also usually include a very low-calorie diet that promotes rapid weight loss, which is often an excellent motivator for sticking with your plan.

Due to the calorie restrictions and medications prescribed with these weight loss plans, medically supervised programs also require routine checkups with a qualified physician. During these visits, you receive valuable encouragement and support regarding your weight loss progress as well as a brief exam and possibly lab studies to help ensure you remain healthy throughout the course of the program.

What medically supervised weight loss programs are available?  

Weight loss programs are customized to suit your individual needs and may vary from person to person.

Our team is dedicated to helping you lose weight because of the positive impact it can have on your self-esteem and confidence. As physicians, our providers know that maintaining a healthy weight can improve your overall health. Our providers can assist you in quick and safe weight loss, and in maintaining your weight loss.

Thus, your customized plan may include FDA-approved prescription medications to help you defeat cravings as well as training in behavioral modification techniques that can change the habits that led to your weight gain. You can also expect education regarding nutritious eating, physical activity, and other healthy habits that support physical well-being.  

How does weight loss improve my health?

Excess weight increases your risk of developing serious medical conditions that can decrease your life expectancy and greatly reduce your quality of life, including:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease, high blood pressure, and stroke
  • Musculoskeletal issues caused by the strain excess weight puts on your joints
  • Obstructive sleep apnea and other serious sleep disorders

If you’re already experiencing health issues related to obesity, weight loss may lessen those conditions or even eliminate issues such as high blood pressure.
