Medical Weight Loss

Medical Weight Loss

What does medical weight loss involve?

Medical weight loss is a scientifically backed method aimed at reducing body fat. It is typically recommended by physicians when other approaches have proven ineffective, or when individuals are overweight or obese. This approach is particularly beneficial for those with health conditions associated with excess body fat or those experiencing joint pain, especially in the knees or hips.

Even if you feel comfortable with your current weight, carrying excess body fat can lead to the following health issues:

  • Arthritis
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Certain types of cancer
  • Acid reflux disease
  • Sleep apnea
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure
  • Back or joint pain
