Medical Weight Loss

 

 

 

More than 100 million Americans, nearly 75% of men and 60% of women in the United States are obese or overweight. Obesity may cause serious diseases such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension, cancer, sleep apnea and more.  Weigh loss is not just about diet and exercise. There's more to the complex physiology of body weight regulation than diet and exercise. Many undiagnosed diseases slow down the metabolism which results in weight gain.  Psychological and behavioral problems also play a significant role in developing obesity.

Only a physician or registered dietician can effectively evaluate a patient and determine the true cause of weight problems. There is no "one size fits all" approach when it comes to weight loss.   Our weight loss programs are specifically designed for each patient.  They include a combination of nutrition education, use of approved weight loss products, exercise and behavioral modification, as well as community support and diabetes education.

The weight loss programs begin by an initial consult by a practitioner who understands the disease of obesity. The practitioner performs a comprehensive medical evaluation to determine the cause of obesity.
