Being overweight or obese quickly increases the risk of developing life-threatening health conditions, making weight management one of the most important components of preventative care today. Medical weight loss programs provide patients who are considered to be obese or overweight and have already developed a weight-related health condition the best chance of success in losing the necessary weight to allow them to live a long and healthy life feeling their best.
Several different weight loss medications can be prescribed by your physician to support a weight loss program, making maintaining a calorie-deficient diet much easier by suppressing appetite and providing the extra energy and metabolism boost that patients need to maintain a regular exercise routine and to use the excess stored fat as energy. Each medication has its benefits and potential risks, so it is up to the patient and the physician to determine the best fit, offering the best chance at achievable results while providing the lowest risk of adverse effects. The medication will need to be gradually increased in dosage over weeks or months, allowing for the patient’s body to become accustomed to the medication and to allow for any changes to the medication to be made in case they are not responding well to that specific type. It will also need to be used as part of a medically supervised weight loss program that includes a recommended diet and exercise regimen.
Medically supervised weight loss programs can vary a bit depending on the specific needs of each patient. Still, they will most likely involve a combination of a recommended diet that is calorie-deficient, a recommended exercise regimen, and a medication that will be administered weekly and gradually increased in dosage. The supervised weight loss will take place over a certain number of months to support the patient in reaching their weight loss goals in a healthy and effective manner, ideally providing sustainable results. The medication is used to support the patient’s ability to maintain a calorie-deficient diet by suppressing their appetite while providing metabolism-boosting and energy-boosting benefits, allowing patients to continue working out and forcing the body to use the stored excess fat as energy instead of consumed calories. The exact effect that the medication used will have on the body will depend on the type of medication that is being administered.
Medical weight loss programs are one of the safest, most effective, and most sustainable means of losing weight. It is very common for patients to try to lose weight on their own, but without the proper knowledge and support, it becomes either a very unhealthy situation in which weight is being lost but at the expense of the patient’s health, or the patient struggles to lose the weight that they need to lower their risks of developing weight-related health conditions. One of the most significant benefits of a medical weight loss program is having a trusted physician supervising and supporting the entire process, providing accountability and guidance to ensure that the patient stays on track and that any concerns that may arise throughout the process are addressed. The addition of medication used for weight loss also provides patients with a much higher success rate of being able to get down to their healthy goal weight within a more sustainable timeline, allowing many patients who were previously unable to lose weight to be their healthiest selves once again.
The rate at which patients will start to see noticeable weight loss results will vary quite a bit from individual to individual depending on how quickly they can safely increase the dosage of the weight loss medication and the rigorousness of the other components of the weight loss program. If patients respond well to the medication and are closely following their recommended diet and exercise plans, they will be able to see significant weight loss within several weeks to a few months. The physician who is supervising your medical weight-loss program will be able to provide you with a more accurate weight-loss timeline depending on your starting weight, your goal weight, the type of medication you are using, your body’s response to the medication, and the number of calories that you should be consuming and burning daily.
