What are the benefits of a medical weight loss program?
Starting a weight loss program can be a little daunting to do on your own. It may seem challenging to navigate at first and keep yourself on track. With an assisted medical weight loss program, you can live more comfortable and benefit in many ways, such as:
- Improve sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a dangerous sleep disorder that causes a person to struggle with breathing while sleeping. In addition to disrupting your sleep, you may experience other unpleasant side effects, such as high blood pressure, problems with concentration, headaches, dry mouth in the morning, snoring, and grogginess throughout the day.
- Reduce health risks. From prevention of diabetes, a stroke, or a heart attack, our weight loss program can help reduce the potential for developing these serious health problems further down the line. To reduce the risks, our group will discuss your current health, provide guidance on forming healthy habits, and help you learn how to manage cravings or feelings of hunger.
- Attain healthier cholesterol levels. Cholesterol is a substance that helps the body with healthy cell production, but at high levels, it can harm the body and create severe health issues. By managing your cholesterol, you can stave off serious health problems, such as a heart attack or stroke. Part of your strategy will include changing your diet, managing personal lifestyle choices, and learning how to shop for healthy food options.
- Achieve your ideal weight. Losing weight can help in many areas of our lives. Weight loss can improve how you move, reduce chronic pain in the joints, or decrease uncomfortable skin rashes caused by chafing. It may also help you wear the clothes you want or enhance your confidence. While getting down to the root of the problem, we promote lots of self-love and positive body affirmations throughout your program.
At your consultation with Dr. Semel, our team will comprehensively assess your needs by reviewing your medical history, lab work, physical exam, and preferences. We may provide various treatment options, like dietary supplements, portion-controlled meals, and dietary meal plans.
