Weight Loss Q & A

What is medically supervised weight loss?

Medically supervised weight loss uses prescription medication, exercise guidance, and nutritional recommendations to help you achieve your ideal weight. Instead of trying to rush immediate results like most diet plans, medically supervised weight loss takes a methodical approach to healthier living.

By visiting the team at I & B Medical Associates for routine checkups, you can stay on track, lose weight, and improve your general well-being.

What medical issues might benefit from medically supervised weight loss?

You might be a candidate for medically supervised weight loss if you’ve been diagnosed with any of the following health problems:

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • Kidney disease
  • Arthritis
  • Thyroid disorders
  • Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)
  • Chronic inflammation

Losing weight may even improve your mental health. Studies suggest people who maintain a healthy weight are less likely to experience behavioral disorders like depression and anxiety.

What does medically supervised weight loss involve?

At I & B Medical Associates, medically supervised weight loss features several aspects, including:

Nutrition recommendations

If you want to maintain a healthy weight, eating a nutritious and balanced diet is crucial. The team at I & B Medical Associates can recommend meals and snacks that include leafy greens, fruits, whole grains, and lean proteins.

Exercise guidance

Staying physically active is vital if you want to maintain a healthy weight. No matter your level of physical fitness, the team at I & B Medical Associates can recommend exercises that align with your capabilities. That might include walking, water aerobics, and weight lifting –– or a combination of all three.

Prescription medication

If dietary changes and regular exercise don’t help you achieve significant weight loss, the team at I & B Medical Associates might recommend prescription medication. Some drugs can assist with weight loss; some suppress your appetite, while others help you burn more calories.

How long does medically supervised weight loss take?

The time that medically supervised weight loss takes depends on your metabolism, age, and commitment to the team’s treatment plan.

Most people lose at least a few pounds within the first two weeks*, but it may take several months for you to achieve noticeable results. Make sure to attend each of your checkups and stick to your prescribed diet.  

To see if you’re a candidate for medically supervised weight loss, make an appointment at I  & B Medical Associates by calling the office or booking online today.
