Is medically supervised weight loss right for me?

Your Balanced Health provider lets you know which type of medical weight loss plan is right for you. They review your symptoms, medications, medical history, and lifestyle habits – especially your usual dietary intake.

They also weigh you, calculate your body mass index (BMI), and check your blood pressure, pulse, and other vital signs. Your provider also completes a physical exam and may order blood tests, heart-function testing, or other diagnostic tests before tailoring your personalized weight loss plan.

What should I expect during medical weight loss?

Some of the highly effective components of medical weight loss programs at Balanced Health include:

Human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG)

HCG is a hormone your body naturally produces, and it often declines with aging. HCG helps you maintain muscle mass and it boosts fat metabolism, which aids in weight loss and helps you keep lost weight off long term.

Other hormone treatments

If you have low levels of estrogen, testosterone, or thyroid hormone, this can hinder your weight-loss progress. The Balanced Health team offers bioidentical hormone therapy to balance hormones and make weight loss easier.

Nutrition plans

Your Balanced Health provider develops a customized nutrition and exercise plan tailored to your unique needs. Following a nutrition plan is one of the best ways to drop excess weight and body fat while reducing your risk of nutrient deficiencies.

Healthy lifestyle changes

In addition to altering your eating habits, it’s essential to reduce stress, get regular exercise, sleep well, and avoid smoking, drinking, and other unhealthy habits.
