Medical Weight Loss Q & A

What does medical weight loss mean?

Medical weight loss refers to weight loss programs supervised by medical professionals who have considerable expertise and clinical knowledge in the area of weight management. 

With medical weight loss, you can get valuable insight into why you’ve struggled to lose weight, what your body needs to succeed with weight loss, and how you can reach your goals quickly while remaining safe. 

 

What options are available in medical weight loss?

Apex Integrative Medicine, PLLC, offers a wide range of medical weight loss solutions, including: 

  • Nutrition services: Nutrition education and guidance
  • Meal plans
  • Semaglutide: Ozempic® and Wegovy® self-injections (once a week)
  • Tirzepatide: Mounjaro® self-injections (once a week)
  • Tesofensine: Oral appetite suppressant
  • 5-amino-1MQ: Clinical peptide to target fat cell loss and boost metabolism 
  • Phentermine: Oral appetite suppressant
  • Vitamin B-12 injections
  • Methionine inositol choline (MIC) shots: Skinny Shots to boost metabolism and fat loss

Medical weight loss plans always include nutrition services and meal plans. These might be all some people need to get on track and eventually achieve their target weight. 

Other patients may want to speed up their results while staying safe under medical supervision, and that’s where medication and options like clinical peptides can come in. 

These approaches can help you burn fat faster, have more energy, break through weight loss plateaus, and improve your whole-body health. Losing just 10% of your extra weight can lower your cholesterol, prevent the progression of Type 2 diabetes, and benefit your health in many other ways.

There are also other ways to support your weight loss, though they’re not specifically weight loss measures themselves. One example is bioidentical hormone therapy. Women gain an average of 1.5 pounds per year in the early years of menopause, and many men gain a similar amount as they enter middle age. 

Hormone depletion is a leading reason for this, but it’s reversible through bioidentical hormone replacement therapy.

Can anyone qualify for medical weight loss? 

If you can’t lose your extra weight and need some support, you’re a good candidate for medical weight loss at Apex Integrative Medicine, PLLC. 

Certain medications, like oral appetite suppressants and weight loss injections, do require you to be either clinically obese or overweight with additional weight-related problems like diabetes. 

Apex Integrative Medicine, PLLC, is seeing weight loss patients through telemedicine now, and will welcome patients to their new office in the coming months. Book an appointment online or call the practice today.
