Medical Weight Loss Q & A

What is medical weight loss?

If you’d like to drop those extra pounds, but don't know where to begin, the providers at Regenerative Health & Wellness Medical Center want you to know you’re not alone. Nearly half of Americans struggle to maintain a healthy weight. That’s where medical weight loss works to your advantage, giving you an edge and the extra support necessary to achieve your weight-loss goals.

Physician-managed weight-loss programs at Regenerative Health & Wellness Medical Center are customized to your specific needs, whether you want to drop 10 pounds or 100 pounds. The plans include:

  • Lifestyle modifications
  • Natural and pharmaceutical solutions for weight loss
  • Nutritional counseling

The goal of nutritional counseling is to show you how to live a healthy lifestyle in the real world while equipping you with effective tools to help you lose weight — and keep it off for good. 

What causes weight gain?

A multitude of lifestyle and medical factors cause some people to be more prone to weight gain than others. These factors include:

  • Family history
  • Poor diet
  • Lack of exercise
  • Hormone imbalance
  • Thyroid disorder
  • Stress

And while cutting calories and exercising regularly is a good start, a medical weight-loss plan also takes into account the effects of your health and lifestyle on your ability to maintain a healthy weight. 

How can I get started on a medical weight-loss plan?

Dr. Foley at Regenerative Health & Wellness Medical Center takes a thorough medical history and discusses your specific circumstances during your initial consultation. You have blood tests performed to identify any underlying hormonal issues that may thwart your ability to lose weight. 

For example, weight gain is a symptom of a hormonal imbalance in women known as polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). You may have a health issue that’s affecting your ability to lose weight and not even know it.

Once Dr. Foley completes an assessment of your overall health, he recommends a medical weight-loss plan to help you achieve a healthy weight. Plans generally include a combination of diet medications, nutritional counseling, and lifestyle changes.

If you’re ready to take a step for your lasting health, Regenerative Health & Wellness Medical Center offers physician-supervised plans to help you achieve and maintain a healthy weight. Learn more by calling the office today.
