Medical Weight Loss Q & A
What is medical weight loss?
Medical weight loss can help you reach a healthy weight with carefully selected prescription medications that complement the diet and exercise program your provider prepares for you.
Being obese or severely overweight can have significant adverse effects on your health and well-being. You're more likely to develop serious medical conditions such as:
Hypertension (high blood pressure)
Type 2 diabetes
Some types of cancer
Depression and anxiety
Chronic venous insufficiency
At Lotus Direct Care, the team uses medical weight loss programs to help you avoid these conditions, supporting you at every stage of your customized weight loss journey.
How does medical weight loss work?
Medical weight loss is a safe way to lose weight because your provider at Lotus Direct Care regularly checks your vital signs. These routine assessments measure your blood pressure, heart rate, and lung function. They also test your blood's glucose and cholesterol levels and identify nutrient deficiencies.
Your provider can adjust your weight loss plan as you go along, minimizing strain on your body and making certain the weight comes off steadily. When you need extra support with weight loss, the team can prescribe medications like appetite suppressants that help you avoid overeating.
Safe weight loss medication is only available on prescription, so you have to be on a medical weight loss program like the Lotus Direct Care service to benefit.
The weight-loss experts help improve outcomes with dietary counseling and medication management, along with the most up-to-date treatments for obesity. They individualize treatment to fit in with your unique goals and address any related health conditions.
What's the best way to lose weight?
To lose weight, you have to use more calories during physical activity than you take in when you eat. Your metabolic processes then use the stored fat around your body as fuel. However, all sorts of factors can affect how best to achieve this, from your age to the amount of fat you have.
There are many commercial diets and weight loss products available and many different approaches to weight loss. Some are simply ineffective or hard to follow; others are actively harmful.
There are no shortcuts to reaching a healthy weight, but the medical weight loss program at Lotus Direct Care offers you the best hope of success.
