Our Clinicians perform the diagnoses at our Wood River weight loss center, will take account of your age and your current level of health, and she may include an examination of your thyroid function and your heart and lungs.
Once we have all of this information you will have a physical examination which will be utilized to determine if you need additional testing to select the best weight loss plan for you. Thyroid tests may be carried out to check if you have an over or under active thyroid.
