Medical Weight Loss Q&A


How do medical weight loss programs work?

At Integrative Care 360, tailored medical weight loss programs typically consist of:

 

  • Hormonal pellet therapy with Biote®
  • Prescriptions for weight loss and diet medications (phentermine, etc.)
  • Lipo-B injections
  • Dietary supplements
  • Private weigh-ins
  • One-on-one nutrition counseling
  • Exercise recommendations

 

Your medical weight loss treatment plan continues until you reach your personal goal.

What are the benefits of medical weight loss therapy?

No commercial weight loss programs have proven more effective than medical ones. The most important benefit of weight loss is that it decreases your risk of metabolic syndrome, which is linked to multiple serious conditions.

 

Additionally, medical weight loss can help you make a positive change in your overall health, boost your energy levels, and improve your self-esteem. Under medical supervision, rapid weight loss programs offer a safe and easy way to lose and keep weight off.

What can I expect at my initial medical weight loss appointment?

During your initial medical weight loss visit, Dr. Turner will:

 

  • Asks detailed questions regarding your current lifestyle and dietary habits
  • Review your medical history
  • Perform a comprehensive physical exam
  • Order blood work, urinalysis, or both

 

Based on this information, your provider develops a tailored weight loss plan that is optimal for you.

What treatments do you have for medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is a doctor-supervised plan to help you reach and maintain a healthy weight. It may be a good match if you’ve tried losing weight on your own through a healthy diet and lifestyle choices but haven’t achieved sustainable results. Some treatment options for weight loss include:

  • Natural supplements
  • Appetite control - affect the appetite regulating region of the brain
  • Phentermine (activates adrenalin to increase metabolic rate)
  • Phendimetrazine - short acting (use in afternoon)
  • Diethylpropion - (serotonin agonist, few side effects) short acting (use in afternoon)
  • Phentermine/topiramine combination
  • Lipotropic injections - choline prevents cholesterol absorption and aids in fat breakdown while B vitamins increase metabolic rate
  • Hormones
  • Vitamin injections
  • Intraenous infusions
  • Aesthetics
  • Lipo Sculpt Cream

 

Dr. Turner performs several health screenings and diagnostic testing services to tailor your medical weight loss plan to meet your specific needs.

What is considered a healthy weight?

A healthy weight varies based on factors like age, height, and body composition. It is typically determined by a balance between individual health indicators, such as BMI, body fat percentage, and overall well-being.

 

How long will it take to start seeing medical weight loss results?

Everyone’s body is different. While dropping one or two pounds per week is healthy, some may drop even more each week, especially with diet and exercise.

 

Whether you have 10 or 20 pounds to lose or 100 pounds to drop, Integrative Care 360 Dr. Turner and her multidisciplinary team are dedicated to helping patients reach their goals.

 

If you’re struggling to lose weight on your own, medical weight loss is the solution you’ve been looking for.
