Medically Assisted Weight Loss Q & A

What is medically assisted weight loss?

Medically assisted weight loss is a comprehensive approach to weight reduction that targets the underlying causes of your weight gain. Whether you need to lose 100 pounds or those last 10 pounds that just won’t go away, medical weight loss helps you succeed with advantages such as:

Medical evaluation

Your weight-loss journey begins with a medical evaluation, including your diet and weight-loss history, an evaluation of your overall health, and lab tests if needed. The team at Pacific Neuropsychiatric Specialists can test for hormone imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, and medical conditions that may need treatment or that affect decisions about your diet and exercise.

Integrative weight loss

Your weight-loss plan addresses every part of your life that affects your weight, including your emotional health and the behaviors that trigger overeating.

Customized diet and exercise plan

You diet and exercise plan are based on your metabolism, body composition, and weight-loss goals.

Support and accountability

You’re more likely to achieve your weight-loss goals with ongoing support and encouragement from the team at Pacific Neuropsychiatric Specialists.

What health risks can I prevent with medically assisted weight loss?

The more weight you gain, and the longer you go without losing weight, the more likely you are to develop serious health conditions. Your fat cells release hormones that affect your metabolism and systems throughout your body. As a result, being overweight gradually leads to:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Kidney and liver disease

Extra weight also puts excessive stress on your muscles, bones, and joints, significantly increasing your risk for knee osteoarthritis.

What services will I receive with medically assisted weight loss?

These are a few examples of the comprehensive services available at Pacific Neuropsychiatric Specialists:

  • Prescription weight-loss medications
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Balanced meal plan
  • Exercise routine
  • Psychotherapy
  • Cognitive behavioral therapy

Once you reach your goal, the team develops a maintenance program to ensure your ongoing success. They’re dedicated to supporting you for the long run, so you can schedule an appointment anytime you need help with your diet or feel yourself slipping back into old habits.
