Weight Loss Q&A

What is medical weight loss?

Weight loss at Premier Primary Care involves an all-natural, medically supervised weight-loss program without pills, shakes, hormones, or hCG. Your provider customizes each weight loss plan based on your unique needs, lifestyle, preferences, and initial body weight. 

Choosing medical weight loss increases your chance of effectively dropping weight and keeping it off long term. The Premier Primary Care team helps you shift your mindset to commit to losing weight.

What are the benefits of medical weight loss?

Choosing medical weight loss at Premier Primary Care offers numerous health and wellness benefits, such as:

  • Lower risk of chronic diseases
  • Lower blood pressure
  • Lower cholesterol
  • Improved blood sugar
  • More confidence
  • Increased life span
  • Better success rates
  • A better overall quality of life
  • Motivational support

Medical weight loss takes the guesswork out of planning your own meals, menus, and workouts. The team at Premier Primary Care checks in with you regularly to make sure you stay on track with your program. They support you every step of the way.

What happens during medical weight loss?

When you arrive for a medical weight-loss appointment at Premier Primary Care, the team weighs you and reviews your diet and medical history. They check your vital signs and complete a physical exam. 

Your doctor might use blood tests or other diagnostic testing procedures to detect or rule out medical conditions that affect weight loss or your overall health. Examples include thyroid disorders, other hormone imbalances, and nutrient deficiencies. If you require treatment for high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or other chronic disease risk factors, Premier Primary Care offers it.

During subsequent appointments, your weight-loss specialist weighs you, checks your vital signs, and discusses your progress. They can adjust your weight-loss plan when necessary throughout your weight-loss journey.

How much weight can I lose?

Expect to lose about 2-5 pounds weekly with medical weight loss, at least initially. The amount of weight you can lose is based on your starting weight, goal weight, and how well you adhere to diet and exercise programs.

Don’t let being overweight diminish your confidence and quality of life. Schedule a medical weight-loss appointment with Premier Primary Care over the phone or online today.
