Medical Weight Loss Q & A

What are the health risks of being overweight?

There are numerous health conditions associated with being overweight. Some of these conditions include:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • High cholesterol/high triglycerides
  • Stroke
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Sleep apnea and breathing problems
  • Several types of cancer
  • Depression, anxiety, and other mood disorders
  • Chronic pain

Some of these complications can have dangerous consequences for your health and may eventually become life-threatening. The good news is that when you lose weight, you can significantly reduce or even eliminate your risk for many of these conditions.

What does a medical weight loss program involve?

The compassionate providers at Victory Medical Clinic create a customized weight loss program based on your personal health history, your body composition, your weight loss goals, and other individual factors.

Medical weight loss programs at Victory Medical Clinic focus on eating a nutritious diet and making lifestyle changes so you can build healthy habits to help you maintain your results. Options for medical weight loss programs include:

  • All-natural, plant-based meal plans
  • Raw food meal plans
  • Organic and above-organic meal plans
  • Prescription weight loss medications
  • Exercise programs
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Counseling and other support services

Medical weight loss programs are typically structured in 7-, 14-, and 28-day plans. You may choose to repeat or extend your program under the supervision of your provider.

Once you’ve reached a healthy, stable weight, you may find that there are some areas of your body that haven’t slimmed down as much as you’d like.

The Kemsky Medical Group at Victory Medical Clinic offers laser body contouring treatments to help reduce fat in stubborn areas that don’t respond to diet and exercise.

How much weight will I lose on a medical weight loss program?

How much weight you can lose on a medically supervised weight loss program depends on your personal goals, your medical history, your commitment to the lifestyle and dietary changes required for weight loss, and other individual factors.

At your consultation, your skilled Victory Medical Clinic provider gives you all the information you need so you have a clear understanding of what’s required to reach your ideal weight and maintain your results.
