Medical Weight Loss Q & A

How can medical weight loss improve health and wellness?

Carrying a significant volume of extra weight is incredibly detrimental to your overall health. Extensive research shows clear links between being overweight or obese and a wide range of serious health issues. 

Medical weight loss can help you move closer to a healthy weight. This reduces your risk of the following:

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Kidney disease
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Pregnancy complications
  • Dementia
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Metabolic syndrome

Losing even a moderate amount of weight can dramatically reduce your risk of chronic disease. 

Why is it so difficult to lose weight and maintain results?

This simple question has a complex answer. A big part of the problem lies in the American food supply. Fast food is available nearly around the clock in many communities, and grocery store aisles are lined with highly processed foods. 

Modern lifestyles also complicate weight loss. Many people spend hours each day in front of screens at home and work, leaving little time for getting outdoors and staying active. High levels of stress and poor sleep quality are also problematic. 

How is medical weight loss different?

Medical weight loss does not rely on fad diets or extreme exercise to achieve results. The central focus is maintaining and enhancing your health without pushing your body beyond healthy limits. 

Personalized consultations let your practitioner know how to best shape your weight loss plan. Biometric medical scales from Seca® assess all the tissues in your body to determine percentages of fat, bone, water, and muscle. 

Coaching helps you understand what contributed to your weight gain and how to best motivate you toward success. You’ll learn to add fruit, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats to your diet. Getting enough exercise is also critical, and you might be surprised to learn how even small changes can add up. 

Medication might play a role in your treatment plan, and supplements can also be beneficial for many people. No matter how your journey takes shape, you’ll have the support of the RegenMed Health Centers team. Begin today by booking a consultation online or by phone.
