Weight loss can be hard, but it doesn't have to feel impossible and you do not have to do it on your own. There are many benefits to having a healthy weight, from improved self image, more energy, and even being able to cut back or stop taking some unwanted medications. At PMAACT, our team can help build a personalized plan that is healthy and right for you to help in your weight loss journey, which may include diet plans, supplements, and or medication.
The team at Preventive Medicine Anti-Aging and Chelation Therapy first asks about your current health and habits. They might further evaluate you with blood panel tests, like a thyroid panel. Hypothyroidism, caused by an underactive thyroid, can cause weight gain or trouble losing weight. Imbalances with estrogen, testosterone, and other hormones can also contribute.
After your evaluation, the team recommends one of the following products to supplement your weight loss plan:
Phentermine is a prescription medication that can suppress your appetite and curb habits of overeating. The team can also work with you to adjust your diet and exercise habits as you use this medication.
The team might recommend peptide therapy as part of your weight loss plan. Peptides are amino acid sequences that signal important body processes, like your metabolism. For example, growth hormone releasing peptides (GHRPs) signal the release of growth hormone, which declines as you age. Growth hormone helps you build muscle instead of accumulating fat.
Losing even a small percentage of body fat can result in many measurable health improvements if you’re overweight or obese. They include:
Lower blood pressure
Better sexual functioning
Reduced risk for diabetes
Reduced risk for heart disease and stroke
Some people consider weight loss to be cosmetically beneficial too. You might gain a boost in confidence, in addition to the health benefits, by losing weight.
Weight loss is feasible with professional support and a clear-cut plan. To start your weight loss plan, call Preventive Medicine Anti-Aging and Chelation Therapy, or book a visit online today.
