Medical Weight Loss

What is medical weight Loss?

A weight loss plan that incorporates Semaglutide can be a powerful tool for individuals looking to achieve sustainable weight loss, improved health, and long-term wellness. The plan typically involves a combination of medical interventions, dietary modifications, physical activity, and behavioral therapy. The healthcare professional will develop a customized plan that is tailored to the individual’s specific needs and goals, which may include the use of prescription weight loss medications, meal replacements, or other medical interventions.


What are the benefits of Medical Weight Loss?

The benefits of a medical weight loss plan may include significant weight loss, improved blood sugar control, reduced risk of weight-related health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, and sleep apnea, and improved overall health and well-being. Medications should be used in conjunction with a comprehensive lifestyle plan that emphasizes healthy eating habits, regular exercise, and positive behavior changes. This approach values permanent lifestyle changes over quick fixes or fad diets and promotes sustainable weight loss that can be maintained over a lifetime.

How does it work?

Individuals achieve sustained weight loss and improve their overall health with a medical weight loss plan. A commonly prescribed weight loss medication in the plan is Semaglutide.  Semaglutide is a once weekly injection that slows gastric emptying and signals fullness to your brain, leading to on average a 15%+ loss of body weight. Semaglutide is used in conjunction with a comprehensive weight loss plan that includes dietary modifications and recommendations for increased physical activity.

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a medication that works by regulating blood sugar levels and suppressing appetite, leading to decreased food intake and subsequent weight loss. In addition to its use in treating diabetes, semaglutide has been approved by the FDA for weight management in adults with obesity or who are overweight and have at least one weight-related health condition such as high blood pressure or type 2 diabetes. By working with healthcare professionals to develop a customized plan that incorporates Semaglutide and other evidence-based strategies, individuals can achieve their weight loss goals while also improving their overall health and wellness for the long term.

What is Phentermine?

Phentermine is one of the oldest and most commonly prescribed weight loss medications. It works by suppressing appetite and increasing the body’s metabolism. Phentermine is typically prescribed for short-term use (usually a few weeks or months) as part of a weight-loss program that includes diet and exercise.

Who is a candidate for a medical weight loss plan?

Medical weight loss can be an effective option for individuals who have struggled to lose weight through traditional methods such as diet and exercise. Candidates for medical weight loss may also have weight-related health conditions such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, or sleep apnea. It is important to note that medical weight loss is not a one-size-fits-all approach and a qualified healthcare professional should evaluate each individual’s medical history, current health status, and weight loss goals to determine if medical weight loss is a suitable option. Individuals who are committed to making permanent lifestyle changes and are willing to adhere to a comprehensive weight loss plan that includes behavioral, dietary, and exercise modifications are more likely to experience success with medical weight loss.

What are potential side effects?

Potential side effects associated with medical weight loss depend upon the drug and dose prescribed. Some possible side effects include nausea, diarrhea, constipation, headache, and dizziness. It is important to work closely with a healthcare professional when undergoing a medical weight loss plan to ensure safety and efficacy.
