Our medical weight loss programs take your physical and medical history into consideration when developing the plan that will help you lose those extra pounds.
At Medical Weight Loss Centers, LLC we offer multiple plans for weight loss. One plan is the Fast Track Program which involves receiving daily HCG medically prescribed injections of a hormone produced during pregnancy that can spur rapid long-lasting weight loss. Another plan is the Lifestyle Change Program. It involves receiving appetite control medication and Lipo injections which not only help you to lose weight, but can have a positive impact on other conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. Other weight loss options include creative visual relaxation, or CVR, which is a type of hypnosis that re-adjusts your eating habits and approach to food.
Medical Weight Loss Diagnosis
At Medical Weight Loss Centers, LLC we take a medical approach to weight loss. During your initial consultation we will review your medical history so we can determine the best weight loss plan, whether that plan ultimately involves the HCG medically prescribed injections, CVR or Lipo injections. Your medical history will include weight and current diet as well as your mental status and history.
After your consultation, we perform a basic examination, taking note of your current height, blood pressure and pulse. Our medical provider performs the diagnoses at our weight loss center. They may also examine your thyroid, heart and lungs depending on how healthy you are and your current age.
The information gleaned from your medical history and physical examination is used to determine whether or not you need further testing to choose the best weight loss plan. Thyroid testing may be done to see if your thyroid is over or under active. If you have a history of heart disease or a family history of cardiac disease, you may undergo an EKG. We also test female and male hormone levels if needed.
Once your examination and diagnosis is complete we will then be able to develop the best medical weight loss plan for you. If you need to lose weight rapidly we may suggest the Fast Track Program which involves daily medically prescribed injections. CVR or Lipo injections may be a better fit for you. Before prescribing injections, or any other medication, we will educate you on the risks and benefits of using them. Whether you follow Dr. Simeon’s protocol or other methods, you’ll receive regular counseling at our a clinic.
