Weight Loss Q & A

Does being overweight negatively affect my health?

If you’re overweight, you’re also more likely to experience serious health problems including high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes. Being overweight can also affect your confidence and self-esteem, increasing your risk of anxiety or depression.

Carrying extra weight around also affects your mobility. Research shows that losing just 5-10 pounds can ease inflammation throughout your body and take weight-bearing pressure off your knees. This makes it easier to walk, climb stairs, and participate in other physical activities.

If you’ve tried losing weight many times but haven’t achieved your desired results, don’t give up. Medically supervised weight loss at We Care Clinic can help you shed pounds once and for all. 

What does weight loss involve?

At We Care Clinic, the team provides an affordable weight-loss program that consists of several steps. This includes:

Doctor consultations

Successful weight loss begins with a one-on-one doctor consultation. During this appointment, your We Care Clinic provider conducts a physical exam, reviews your medical history, and asks about your goals for treatment. Your provider also orders blood tests to determine if you have a thyroid disorder or hormonal imbalance, two factors that can make it challenging to lose weight.

Lifestyle changes

Following your initial consultation, your We Care Clinic provider recommends a series of lifestyle changes, including regular exercise, managing your stress levels, getting plenty of sleep, and eating a healthy, balanced diet. Your provider tailors your treatment plan to your individual needs and goals.

Prescription medications

If healthy lifestyle changes aren’t enough to help you lose weight, your provider may recommend prescription medications. There are several medications that can assist with weight loss in different ways. Some curb your appetite, others boost your metabolism. Your We Care Clinic provider makes recommendations based on your unique health history.

Nutritional supplements

The team at We Care Clinic offers nutritional supplements from Evexias Medical Centers. Nutritional supplements balance your hormones, boost your metabolism, and restore your vitality. Combined, these factors make it easier to shed pounds and keep them off.

Am I a good candidate for medically supervised weight loss?

Anyone who wants to lose weight and live a healthier, more vibrant lifestyle is a candidate for medically supervised weight loss. Whether you want to eradicate pesky pockets of belly fat or lose a significant amount of weight, a weight-loss program at We Care Clinic is the first step toward long-lasting health and an improved quality of life.
