I’m overweight. Am I a candidate for medical weight loss?

The team at DMA Health & Wellness conducts an initial evaluation to see if you’re a candidate for their medically managed weight-loss program. The program includes a flexible eating plan, a personalized exercise program, and weight loss medication for those who qualify.

You may benefit from the medically managed weight-loss program if you’re overweight, obese, or have metabolic syndrome (high blood sugar and high cholesterol). 

What can I expect from medical weight loss?

You can expect a personalized weight loss plan from the team at DMA Health & Wellness. Before making recommendations, the weight-loss specialists complete a good-faith exam. 

They ask detailed questions to better understand your weight struggles, looking for outside factors that may explain why it’s harder for you to reach your goals. They learn about your diet history, ask about food likes and dislikes, and inquire about your shopping and cooking routine.

They obtain baseline measurements of your weight, waist-to-hip ratio, and vital signs, and estimate your body mass index (BMI). The team also does lab work. 

The team uses the information they gather during your exam to create your personalized weight loss plan. Your program may last 3-12 months, depending on your weight loss goals. 

You meet with the weight-loss experts at DMA Health & Wellness once a week for the first four weeks of your weight-loss journey and then once a month until you reach your goals. The team offers virtual follow-up appointments to make it easier for you to get the support you need. 

What types of medications help with weight loss?

There’s no one-size-fits-all when it comes to weight-loss medications, and not everyone needs them. The team at DMA Health & Wellness tailors your medications based on how quickly you need to lose weight, your body’s physiology, and your medical history.

Weight loss medications work by suppressing the appetite so you eat less. The team may combine medications to help with food cravings or chronic fatigue. DMA Health & Wellness also offers vitamin injections and intravenous (IV) hydration therapy for weight loss.

The team at DMA Health & Wellness provides all the tools you need to reach your weight goals, but you must be dedicated to the program to succeed. Call DMA Health & Wellness today or schedule your weight-loss consultation online.
