Weight Loss Q & A

Why do people struggle with weight loss? 

If you or a loved one has difficulty losing weight and keeping it off, a medical weight loss expert can help. 


Weight loss is far more complex than a simple calculation of calories in and out. The modern American food supply is part of the problem. Fast food is readily available around the clock. Many people are so overburdened with obligations at work, home, and in their communities that unhealthy options can be challenging to resist.


Lifestyle is partly to blame. Spending more time in front of screens for entertainment, school, and work leaves little time to get outside or move and burn calories.


Factor in high-stress levels and poor sleep quality, and it should be no surprise that so many people struggle with weight.  

What are the health risks of being overweight?

It’s difficult to overstate the health risks you face when you carry a significant amount of extra weight. Virtually every organ and system in your body is negatively affected. Some health issues linked to being overweight or obese include:


  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • High cholesterol
  • Hypertension
  • Kidney disease
  • Stroke
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Depression


These are just a few health problems you might develop if you carry excess weight. Even losing a small amount of weight reduces your risk level significantly and helps you feel healthier daily.

How is medically supervised weight loss different? 

Medically supervised weight loss takes a different approach, placing your health and wellness at the center of the process. Your provider, Melissa, begins by assessing your health and discussing what you hope to achieve through treatment. 


Medications might play a role in your treatment plan, but drug therapy is never the only approach. Your provider works with you to design a nutrition plan that meets your needs and lifestyle.


IV therapy treatments can help fuel your body at the cellular level and can also help ease workout recovery. Also, your provider can run some tests to rule out any hormone imbalances or medical conditions that might be preventing weight loss. She might recommend hormone replacement therapy (HRT) if you have a hormone imbalance. 


Learning how to get more exercise into each day is also part of the process. Your provider helps you push your body without risking harm.
