Medical Weight Loss Q & A

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is a research-based approach to lowering the amount of fat on your body. Your physician might recommend medical weight loss if other approaches fail, you’re overweight or obese, if you already have health conditions related to excess body fat, or if your weight contributes to joint pain, particularly in your knees or hips. 

Even if your weight doesn’t bother you, having extra fat on your body can lead to the following:

  • Arthritis
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Certain types of cancer
  • Acid reflux disease
  • Sleep apnea
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Back or joint pain

If you’re interested in exploring medical weight loss as a solution, the team at Restore Osteo of Colorado can discuss the program with you and help you decide whether or not to participate. They customize your program to fit your needs and help you work toward your goals.

How is medical weight loss different from other weight loss programs?

Medical weight loss doesn’t involve surgery, diet pills, or other approaches to which many people turn as a final resort. Instead, the team at Restore Osteo of Colorado evaluates you, helps you define specific goals, and designs a supportive weight loss plan just for you. 

The goal is not only to lose weight but also to adopt long-term habits to keep it off for good. 

Medical weight loss is different from other plans because your program is catered to your unique needs. Plus, you receive ongoing physician support as you work toward your goals. The team monitors you regularly, answers your questions, and helps keep you motivated.

What does a medical weight loss program include?

The team may ask that you undergo nutritional testing before they design your plan. Nutritional testing can show whether or not you’re getting the nutrients you need through your current diet. They can identify any nutritional deficiencies you have and help you address them with supplements and dietary changes. 

Using information from your consultation and testing, the team creates your personalized weight loss program. It may include:

  • Dietary and nutritional guidance
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Regular nutrient testing
  • Exercise suggestions

Throughout your program, the team helps you address and change the habits that led or contributed to your weight. 

Weight loss doesn’t have to be confusing or hard to navigate. For a personalized medical weight loss program with expert support, call Restore Osteo of Colorado, or book an appointment online today.
