Medical Weight Loss Q & A

What are some ways that medical weight loss can improve my health?

An expansive body of evidence supports a causal link between being overweight or obese and a long list of serious health issues. Losing even a small amount of weight can dramatically reduce your risk level. 

Some of the issues linked to obesity include:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Kidney disease
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Hypertension
  • High cholesterol
  • Depression
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Dementia

These are just a few of the health problems you can develop if you carry significant extra weight. 


How does medical weight loss work?

Medical weight loss puts your health as the central focus. It begins with a physical exam to determine how your body currently functions, including lab testing and EKGs as needed. This gives Dr. Soederbaum a solid overview of your health, helping her shape a customized weight management plan just for you. 

Medication might play a role in your treatment plan. Some drugs work to control appetite, while others help your body metabolize food into energy more efficiently. Drug therapy, however, is never the sole approach. 

Finding ways to replace highly processed foods with more lean proteins, healthy fats, fruit, and vegetables can make a significant improvement in your weight loss goals. Getting more exercise each day is also critical. It doesn’t take a major, overnight, overhaul to see results; even something as simple as adding a daily walk to your routine can help. 


How long does it take to see results with medical weight loss?

Some people see results almost immediately, while others have a more gradual journey. 

Don’t focus so much on the numbers on the scale. Pay attention to how you feel. As you move through your weight loss journey, you’ll begin to have more energy and better sleep. These are the true improvements and can motivate you to continue your weight loss path.
