Weight Loss Q & A
What is medical weight loss?
Medical weight loss involves losing weight under the supervision of a qualified physician. Medically supervised weight loss programs are often more effective than commercial diet plans. Your doctor customizes treatment just for you, based on your:
- Body type
- Bone structure
- Activity level
- Hormone levels
- Food preferences
- Medical history
The medical team at Allied Healthcare Physicians helps you every step of the way so you can reach your goal weight and desired physique in a short amount of time.
How much weight can I lose?
Medical weight loss programs can help you lose 1-5 pounds per week, depending on the plan your doctor recommends.
Dropping 1-2 pounds weekly is common, but your medical team may recommend you lose 3-5 pounds per week using a very low-calorie diet if you’re at high risk of an obesity-related medical condition.
What should I expect during treatment?
When you arrive at a weight loss appointment at Allied Healthcare Physicians, your medical provider weighs you, completes health screenings, and reviews your medical history.
Your doctor may also complete a physical exam and order lab tests to diagnose nutrient deficiencies, hormone imbalances, or certain health conditions. Your weight loss treatment plan might include:
Regular medical checkups
Attend regular checkups during medical weight loss so your doctor can monitor your health, help you set goals, and track weight loss results over time.
Custom meal plans and menus
Your Allied Healthcare Physicians medical provider creates custom meal plans and weight loss menus just for you based on your unique needs and food preferences.
Regular exercise helps you reach your goal weight and maintain it long term. Your provider creates customized exercise programs to enhance your weight loss results.
Your doctor may recommend medications as needed to reduce appetite, increase metabolism, or regulate hormone levels during weight loss. If you have a health condition, your doctor can prescribe medications to manage it.
The weight loss team at Allied Healthcare Physicians takes a personalized approach to your treatment plan, as everybody is different. Medical weight loss is covered by most medical insurance.
