Weight Loss Q&A

Ultimate Health Medical Clinic

What are the risks of carrying excess weight?

Although many people decide to shed excess weight because they want to fit into a smaller size or they simply want to feel better, there’s no doubt that your health is the best reason to lose weight. If you’re overweight, you’re not alone: It’s estimated that 7 out of 10 Americans are overweight, and that more than half those individuals qualify as obese (having a BMI score greater than 30). Carrying excess fat is a complex, critical health issue that drastically increases your risk of many serious health consequences, including:

  • Developing heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, gallbladder disease, osteoarthritis, and certain types of cancer
  • Developing sleep apnea or breathing problems
  • Having a heart attack or stroke
  • Having high blood pressure
  • Having unhealthy blood cholesterol and triglyceride levels
  • Becoming depressed or having anxiety
  • Experiencing chronic pain or difficulty with physical functioning
  • Having a lower quality of life

What is medical weight loss?

Losing just 5-10% of your body weight can substantially lower your risk of being affected by the serious health conditions that are linked to excess fat. Unlike fad diets and short-lived fitness routines, the medical weight loss program at Ultimate Health Medical Clinic is an extensive weight-loss approach that provides you with the resources, tools, and support you need to achieve long-term results. That’s because the physicians at Ultimate Health Medical Clinic view extra weight (and treat it) for what it is: a medical problem. At its core, their medical weight loss program is centered around proven strategies that combine identifying and breaking the habits that contribute to the problem, achieving proper nutrition and increasing physical activity. The team is invested in your health, wellbeing, and ultimate success, providing psychological support from start to finish.

What can I expect?

Because the physicians at Ultimate Health Medical Clinic take a personalized, whole-person approach to wellness, they recognize the need for a well-tailored weight loss program that meets the needs of the individual. After an initial consultation to identify your target weight as well as any medical concerns, the team works to develop a customized, medically-appropriate plan designed to get you to your goal safely and efficiently. Depending on your needs, your program may include prescription appetite control medication, medically monitored HCG, or lipotrophin hormone injections to boost your energy while promoting weight loss. The team tracks your progress and offer advice and motivation until you reach your target weight. By that time, you will have developed the skills you need to maintain your weight loss for life.
