Medical Weight Loss Q & A
Is weight loss right for me?
If you haven’t had luck losing weight on your own, you’re a candidate for medical weight loss at White Integrated Health Clinics. If you suffer from insulin resistance, we offer chronic weight management for obese and overweight people with at least one weight-related condition such as: increased blood pressure, Type 2 Diabetes, and/or high cholesterol.
Your provider weighs you, assesses your body mass index (BMI), and gauges your chronic disease risk factors to develop a customized weight loss plan that best matches your needs.
What are the benefits of medical weight loss?
If you’re overweight or obese, weight loss can help you reap the following benefits:
- A lower risk of chronic diseases
- More energy
- Increased self-confidence
- A higher chance of long-term success
- Medical supervision
Our Family Nurse Practitioner at White Integrated Health Clinics specializes in weight loss and can help you manage a chronic disease if you have one, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, arthritis, or heart disease, during medical weight loss.
What should I expect during weight loss appointments?
During your first weight loss appointment at White Integrated Health Clinics, a provider weighs you and checks your pulse, blood pressure, and other vital signs.
They discuss your medical history and symptoms, if you have any, and complete a physical examination. You may undergo a blood test to assess your nutritional status and hormone levels.
Weight loss services available at White Integrated Health Clinics include:
- Custom meal and menu plans
- Exercise prescriptions
- Weight loss medications
- Dietary supplement counseling
- Chronic disease management
- Health coaching support
- Bioidentical hormone therapy
Your provider personalizes your meal plans based on your initial weight, lifestyle, and food preferences. They answer any questions you may have and follow up with you during your weight loss journey to ensure success.
Where indicated, an under the skin injection may be used to mimic a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that targets areas of the brain that regulate appetite and food intake.
How often should I schedule medical weight loss visits?
You might see your provider once or twice weekly, and taper off as you progress through your weight loss program. Telemedicine visits are available for added convenience, so you can chat with our healthcare providers from the comfort of your home.
Your provider can alter your weight loss plan as needed as you begin dropping weight. Expect to lose about 1-2 pounds per week (up to five pounds weekly, at least initially).
When you’re ready to take charge of your health, achieve your goal weight, and keep lost weight off long-term, call the White Integrated Health Clinics office to schedule a weight loss visit or book an appointment online today.
