Are you having trouble losing weight?

Losing weight can be an uphill battle. Even with hard work and the best of efforts, it can be a struggle. It can be frustrating and lonely. Some people may have an underlying medical condition which makes it difficult to lose weight, such as hypothyroidism or diabetes. Every person is different, and an individualized approach is usually most successful. With medically managed weight loss, you have a trained healthcare professional to guide you to safe and healthy weight loss. We will teach you healthy habits that can help you reach and maintain a healthy weight long-term.

Achieve and maintain a healthy weight

Over 40 percent of all Americans are clinically obese. Adhering to a healthier lifestyle and having a lower body weight can contribute to your health and well-being, as well as reducing the risk of developing obesity-related diseases. You can be beautiful at any size. Medically managed weight loss is designed to help you live a healthier, happier life. We are here to help you feel your best and reaching a healthy weight can play a role. Reaching a healthy weight can lower the risk of diseases such as cancer, coronary heart disease, type 2 diabetes, sleep apnea and stroke.

How does medically managed weight loss work?

Your first step is a personal consultation. The purpose of this consultation is for us to get to know you, your medical history, and your goals. We will ask you questions about your lifestyle, your diet, any exercise habits, and any trouble you have run into in your attempts to lose weight. It is important that you answer all questions as thoroughly as you can. This will help us to formulate the right weight loss plan for you. 

Depending on your unique circumstances, your medical condition, and your preferences, a wide range of approaches may be used to achieve the best outcome for you. These include:

  • Dietary changes and customized meal plans
  • Exercise plans
  • Lifestyle changes, including implementing new healthy habits
  • Prescription of any vitamins, minerals or medication that could help support your weight loss
