What is medically supervised weight loss?

Medically supervised weight loss at LocalMD uses highly effective methods that enhance weight loss and produce safe, long-lasting results. 

The LocalMD specialists are highly trained in providing customized medical weight loss programs. They guide you through a weight loss journey, supporting and keeping you accountable.

What are the benefits of medically supervised weight loss?

The advantages of choosing medical weight loss programs at LocalMD include the following:

  • Long-lasting results
  • Reduced appetite
  • Enhanced fat loss
  • More energy
  • Chronic care management
  • Lower risk of medical problems
  • Fewer nutrient deficiencies
  • Motivational support
  • High success rates

The LocalMD specialists pinpoint and remove barriers to weight loss, such as chronic stress, anxiety, depression, certain lifestyle habits, eating disorders, thyroid disorders, additional hormone imbalances, or other conditions that can hinder success.

Is a medical weight loss program right for me?

To determine if you would benefit from medically supervised weight loss, a LocalMD provider discusses your medical history, weighs you, and determines your body mass index (BMI). 

They check your blood pressure, pulse, and other vital signs; review your medical history; discuss your typical diet and exercise habits; inquire about your goal weight; and complete a physical exam, if needed. 

Before tailoring your personalized weight loss program, your weight loss specialist may suggest blood tests or diagnostic tests that screen for high cholesterol, hormone imbalances, nutrient deficiencies, or other potential problems. 

What does a weight loss plan consist of?

A weight loss plan may include one or more of the following:

  • Custom diet plans
  • Dietary supplements 
  • Food and exercise diaries 
  • Exercise recommendations
  • Stress-reduction techniques
  • Chronic care management
  • Weight-loss medications
  • Hormone replacement therapy
  • Behavioral-change counseling
  • Routine follow-up visits

When followed appropriately, LocalMD plans simplify weight loss and make achieving your target body weight easier. Taking weight loss medicines can speed up fat-burning and reduce your appetite. Hormone therapy also increases your body’s metabolic rate.

A specialist follows up with you whenever needed to help you manage a chronic disease or optimize continued weight loss success.
