Weight Loss Q&A

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss at Horizons Wellness Family Health NP PLLC includes health coaching and medications, if necessary, to ensure patients reach and maintain an ideal body weight. Medical weight loss provides the utmost safety and effectiveness, even when fad dieting or home weight loss programs fail.

The highly trained weight loss specialists at Horizons Wellness Family Health NP PLLC have years of experience and friendly, compassionate demeanors.

What benefits does medical weight loss offer?

Medical weight loss programs are often more effective than fad dieting or attempting weight loss on your own. They help reduce your appetite, increase metabolism, burn excess fat, and ensure healthy weight management lasts long-term — often indefinitely. These programs also help you avoid nutrient deficiencies when reducing your calorie intake.

If you carry excess body weight, achieving your goal weight with the help of Horizons Wellness Family Health NP PLLC offers you more energy, easier weight loss, improved body contours, better disease management, and a lower risk of developing chronic diseases.

Is medical weight loss right for me?

To determine if medical weight loss is right for you and which program is best, your Horizons Wellness Family Health NP PLLC provider weighs you and calculates your body mass index (BMI). They check your vital signs, discuss your medical history, and complete a physical exam.

Your weight loss specialist also reviews your typical food intake, exercise patterns, and other lifestyle habits. They may suggest you undergo blood testing or additional diagnostic tests.

What can I expect from a medical weight loss program?

A personalized medical weight loss program may include the following components:

  • Customized meal plans
  • Individualized exercise programs
  • Weight loss medications, if needed
  • Treatment for depression or anxiety
  • Dietary supplements
  • Medical monitoring
  • Disease management, if necessary
  • Healthy lifestyle coaching
  • Follow-up visits

Your Horizons Wellness Family Health NP PLLC provider follows up with you throughout your weight loss journey to keep you accountable, periodically evaluate your health, and alter your treatment plan whenever needed. A weight loss specialist is available any time you have concerns or questions.
