Medical Weight Loss Q&A

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss involves supervising medical professionals who support healthy weight loss and provide long-term weight management.

If you’re overweight or obese, you have an increased risk for health conditions that include:

  • Stroke
  • Heart disease
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Fatty liver disease
  • Sleep apnea
  • Degenerative arthritis

When you lose weight, you lower your risk for health complications, your energy levels improve, and you simply feel better.

How does medical weight loss work?

At Premier Primary Care, the team’s medical weight loss program identifies potential obstacles that might cause you to be overweight or obese. Next, they develop a nonsurgical, customized plan that works with your lifestyle and fits your needs.

Medical weight loss programs focus on the following:

  • Nutrition
  • Appetite control
  • Exercise
  • Stress management
  • Sleep
  • Prescription medication management

You can rely on your provider to help balance these areas of your life to optimize your weight loss and give you the success you desire. In addition, if you have other conditions that relate to your being overweight or obese, they have the expertise to help manage or treat those, too.

Your provider stays involved with you as you go through your weight loss journey. They support and guide you every step of the way to ensure a productive outcome.

What happens at a medical weight loss consultation?

The Premier Primary Care team aims to understand your health needs and weight loss goals. They spend time reviewing your personal and family medical histories. They also learn about your diet, lifestyle, and current weight.

Tests might be ordered to identify issues, such as:

  • Hormone imbalances
  • Thyroid problems
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Food allergies

Certain foods that aren’t compatible with your body can cause weight gain and chronic inflammation.

The results of your exam and tests determine the best type of diet that suits your needs. You can rely on the caring team to provide ongoing support and to monitor your progress even after you lose weight. Maintenance is part of the plan, as well.
