Medical Weight Loss Q & A

Can Medical Weight Loss Improve My Health?

Losing weight not only makes you feel better physically and mentally, it also has countless health benefits. Losing excess weight and body fat decreases overall stress on your heart and your joints. It decreases bodywide inflammation. Getting to and maintaining a healthy weight also decreases your overall risk of many health problems, including: 

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Liver disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Osteoarthritis 

Being overweight or obese also contributes to 13 types of cancer, including cancers of the colon, breast, stomach, esophagus, and uterus.

What Advantages Do I Gain With Medical Weight Loss Assistance?

While following a healthy diet and getting regular exercise are essential tools for healthy weight loss, these things can be difficult to stick with and sometimes are still not quite enough. At WellCare, we are here to help you be successful in your weight management jouney by providing extra support and tools tailored to your own personal needs. 

In-Depth Evaluations
There are many factors that can work against you on your weight management journey. Hormone imbalances can cause dysregulation of appetite and metabolism. Nutrient deficiencies and chronic health conditions can also affect metabolism and fat distribution and storage. And most of us could use at least a little extra guidance regarding our diet and activity routines. 

At WellCare, we will begin our guidance of your weight management journey with a thorough evaluation to identify any potential health issues that could be influencing your weight. We will then perform a detailed assessment of your diet, activity, and exercise routines. These evaluations will help us to tailor a comprehensive weight management plan personalized to your unique needs.

It is always easier to lose weight when you have support. Our medical weight loss assistance gives you the tools, accountability, and encouragement that you need to be successful. We make it simple to schedule a follow up appointment or reach out with a question or concern any time. And we are here to cheer you on and celebrate your success every step of the way!
