Medical Weight Loss Q & A

How can medical weight loss improve my health?

Extensive research shows that carrying a significant amount of extra weight takes an astounding toll on your body. Virtually every organ and system is negatively affected, and your risk of serious health outcomes rises when you remain overweight. 

Some of the health issues linked to being overweight or obese include:

  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Depression
  • Pregnancy complications
  • Dementia
  • Osteoarthritis

Losing weight can reduce your risk of these and other serious health conditions. Even dropping just a few pounds is well worth the effort. 

How does medical weight loss work?

If you’re like most, you’ve probably tried a number of diet and exercise plans over the years. You may even have achieved a degree of success, only to watch the weight return as soon as you step away from fad diets and extreme exercise programs. 

Medically evaluated weight loss is different. It places your health at the center of the process and never seeks to push your body beyond its limits. Medical weight loss relies on a number of powerful tools to help you shed excess weight. 

Medications like semaglutide can help reduce your appetite and change how you metabolize food into energy. Supplements can help make up for any nutritional deficiencies in your diet. 

Nutritional counseling goes a long way toward helping you learn how to improve your diet. You’ll also explore ways to incorporate more activity into your daily routines. Exercise helps speed your weight loss and brings a wealth of additional benefits. 

How can I maintain my medical weight loss results?

Anyone can drop pounds by adhering to a strict program. However, maintaining those results is the best way to achieve a lifetime of better health. Any change you make must be sustainable in order to reap the benefits over time. 

As you work with the Nür Wellness Clinic team, you’ll learn how to replace highly processed foods and fast food with healthier, whole food choices. Adding more fruit, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats into your daily diet will fuel your body more efficiently and avoid the dangers of food preservatives and additives.
