The LocalMD specialists are highly trained in providing customized medical weight loss programs. They guide you through a weight loss journey, supporting and keeping you accountable.
The advantages of choosing medical weight loss programs at LocalMD include the following:
The LocalMD specialists pinpoint and remove barriers to weight loss, such as chronic stress, anxiety, depression, certain lifestyle habits, eating disorders, thyroid disorders, additional hormone imbalances, or other conditions that can hinder success.
To determine if you would benefit from medically supervised weight loss, a LocalMD provider discusses your medical history, weighs you, and determines your body mass index (BMI).
They check your blood pressure, pulse, and other vital signs; review your medical history; discuss your typical diet and exercise habits; inquire about your goal weight; and complete a physical exam, if needed.
Before tailoring your personalized weight loss program, your weight loss specialist may suggest blood tests or diagnostic tests that screen for high cholesterol, hormone imbalances, nutrient deficiencies, or other potential problems.
A weight loss plan may include one or more of the following:
When followed appropriately, LocalMD plans simplify weight loss and make achieving your target body weight easier. Taking weight loss medicines can speed up fat-burning and reduce your appetite. Hormone therapy also increases your body’s metabolic rate.
A specialist follows up with you whenever needed to help you manage a chronic disease or optimize continued weight loss success.
