Benefits Go Beyond Weight Loss
Weight loss can be challenging. However, when done responsibly, there can be significant benefits. With medically supervised weight loss programs, you have accountability through regular check-ins and progress monitoring, with options to adjust your plan if necessary. Research shows that a weight loss of 5 – 10 percent of total body weight can reduce the progression of pre-diabetes, lower blood pressure and reduce the risk for cardiovascular disease. Participating in one of our medical weight loss programs could help you increase mobility, flexibility and energy levels; improve your memory; and achieve a higher sense of confidence.
Role of Medication in Weight Loss
Medications are effective when used in conjunction with comprehensive lifestyle interventions such as diet, exercise and behavior modifications. Candidates for pharmaceutical intervention include those with a body mass index (BMI) equal to or greater than 30 kg/m2, or a BMI of 27 to 29.9 kg/m2 with weight-related health problems. Though medication does not replace physical activity or other aspects of a weight loss program, it could balance the changes that may occur as you begin to lose weight. Consult with our nonsurgical weight loss doctors to determine which medications can be used with your program.
