Weight Loss Q & A

What is a medical weight loss program?

A medical weight loss program is a doctor-supervised program that helps you lose weight based on your specific body and unique needs and challenges.

Unlike fad diets that produce quick results that disappear just as fast, medical weight loss helps you make lifestyle changes that you can sustain for the long run. The program at Empowerment Med also helps when you need more than a standard diet and exercise to lose your weight.

Limiting calories and following a daily exercise regimen always form the foundation for losing weight. However, your body can work against you with hormonal imbalances that boost your appetite or make it hard to burn fat.

Dr. Ntaimo can get to the bottom of all your weight loss challenges and develop an individualized program that works for you.

Why should I consider a medical weight loss program?

If you’ve tried to lose weight but haven’t reached your goal, or you lose weight but end up regaining it again, it’s time to think about joining the medical weight loss program at Empowerment Med.

One of the most important reasons to lose weight is to prevent the long-term effects on your health. When you’re overweight, you’re at a much higher risk of developing:

  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • High blood pressure
  • Sleep apnea
  • Cancer
  • Kidney disease
  • Osteoarthritis

When you’re at a healthy weight, it’s easier to participate in daily activities, you feel better emotionally, and you gain new confidence in yourself.

How does medical weight loss work?

Dr. Ntaimo and the team at Empowerment Med take a personalized approach to your weight loss. Your program begins with a thorough evaluation that includes a review of your medical history and a physical examination.

The doctor may order lab work to determine underlying problems that could affect your weight and to be sure the diet plan developed for you is safe. For example, Dr. Ntaimo needs to know if you have an underlying health condition, nutritional deficiency, or hormonal imbalance that should be treated.

After setting a realistic goal, the next step is to develop your weight loss plan. The team at Empowerment Med uses a variety of effective therapies, so your plan is customized to meet your needs.

You can count on receiving the ongoing emotional support, diet and nutritional information, and the medical intervention you need to reach your weight loss goals.

If you’ve struggled with weight loss, or have tried dieting without long-term success, call Empowerment Med or book an appointment online to start your new weight loss journey.
