Medical Weight Loss Q & A

How is Medical Weight Loss Different From “Regular” Diet and Exercise?

Losing weight isn’t easy, but the benefits can be tremendous. Not only can losing excess weight help patients feel better about themselves and their appearance, but it can also help patients enjoy better health, reducing the risks for many acute and chronic illnesses and diseases. Often, diet and weight loss are ineffective at promoting weight loss because they’re not optimized for each patient’s unique needs. General dieting and exercise rarely address the underlying causes of weight gain, which means that even if the patient does lose some weight initially, the patient is far more likely to gain it back over time. Medical weight loss is a holistic approach to losing weight that takes the patient’s health, lifestyle, and other personal factors into account to develop a weight loss plan that’s just right for her or his needs. Plus, medical weight loss involves routine “check-ins” to help ensure the patient’s plan evolves over time, and it can include additional treatment options such as nutraceuticals, injections, and important lifestyle guidance.

What Medical Issues Are Associated With Being Overweight or Obese?

Studies have linked excess weight to an array of serious medical issues, including:

  • high blood pressure
  • high cholesterol
  • diabetes
  • depression
  • osteoarthritis
  • metabolic syndrome
  • heart disease and heart attack
  • stroke
  • dementia

Plus, many people who are overweight also experience hormonal imbalances that can cause disruption in sleep cycles and decrease the overall quality of life.

What is Involved In a Medical Weight Loss Program?

Medical weight loss management begins with a thorough personal assessment and physical exam to help identify the factors that may be contributing to the patient’s weight issues. The patient’s examination will include a personal and family medical history to identify risk factors that could be affecting the patient’s ability to lose weight or maintain a healthy weight, and it may also include blood tests or other lab work to gain a complete “picture” of the patient’s health. During the treatment program, a weight loss plan will be customized for the patient’s needs, and regular office visits will help ensure the patient stays on track.
