Medication Assisted Weight Management Program
Numerous studies have shown that a gradual sustained weight loss of as little as 5-10% of total body weight has significant health benefits. The biggest thing we want our patients to understand is that the Biggest Loser and fad diets lead to “yo-yoing” of body weight, sometimes causing more weight gain and eating disorders than what a person starts with.
When patients have shown diet and exercise modifications for extended periods of time that do not lead to weight loss, medication therapy will be prescribed. Weight loss medication therapy includes medications that will help to speed up the body’s metabolism and diminish appetite. When combining this with a suitable diet and exercise program, you should begin to realize results.
