Medical Weight Loss Program Q & A

What is a medical weight loss program?

A medical weight loss program is far more than a “diet.” At All You Medical Spa, your physicians help you identify why you’ve gained excess weight and then devise a personalized weight loss program that takes into account variables such as:

  • Food sensitivities
  • Thyroid and liver disorders
  • Sleep apnea
  • Psychological stress

Depending on your needs, you could work with a variety of All You Medical Spa experts, including doctors, registered dietician, and a psychologist. Your supervising physician may also refer you for physical activity counseling or behavioral therapy.

Why can I not lose weight on my own through dieting?

Dieting rarely works for permanent weight loss, because restricting calories makes your body “think” it’s starving. Although you shed pounds for a while, as soon as you return to your normal eating pattern, your body hoards the extra calories for the next “starvation” period. Instead of losing weight, you can actually gain weight over the long term.

How does a doctor supervise my medical weight loss program?

When you come to All You Medical Spa for a consultation, your physician spends time interviewing you about your past diet attempts, the factors that may have caused your initial weight gain, and your personal and family histories.

Your physician also gives you a thorough physical examination and orders tests that help identify underlying causative factors.  You may be tested for:

  • Blood-sugar levels
  • Cholesterol levels
  • Thyroid function
  • Liver function

Your physician may order further tests, depending on your needs.

What kinds of therapies do I receive for medical weight loss?

After your All You Medical Spa team receives your test results, they create a weight loss program just for you. Some components of your program might include:

  • Lipotropic injections to stimulate fat loss
  • Other weight-loss medications
  • Diet recommendations
  • Exercise program
  • Pre-packaged meal replacement plans

Your physician may also need to treat underlying conditions, such as diabetes or sleep apnea, that were uncovered in the consultation or through testing.

What are lipotropic injections?

Lipotropic injections release and break down fatty deposits in the body without causing muscle wasting. Some benefits of lipotropic injections include enhanced metabolism and improved mood, clarity, and energy.
