Whether you want to lose weight to look better or to be healthier, you may have tried several weight loss programs to no effect. Medical weight loss Bradenton may be a good option because your weight loss program will be managed by our specialist, so you’ll have the treatments and guidance you need to get the excess weight off and keep it off. One myth is that medical weight loss consists of diet pills and surgery. Don’t be fooled. It is weight management by a team of experts that focuses on scientific evidence of your individual causes of weight gain and obesity.
Who is a Good Candidate?
If you have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher, you may benefit from medical weight loss. BMI measures your relative body fat and height and weight. If you have weight-related health issues such as high blood pressure, sleep apnea or type 2 diabetes, you may benefit from having medical supervision of a weight loss program. Some of the weight-related health conditions that medical weight loss may help are:
• Fatty liver disease that is not related to alcohol consumption
• Too low or too high blood lipid levels
• Cardiovascular disease
• Pre-diabetes or diabetes
• Higher-than-normal male hormones in women
• Certain uterine bleeding disorders
Medical Professional Oversight
Medical weight loss is not self-directed. This may be the most important aspect of the program because fad diets and starvation can damage your health severely, and you may still gain back all the weight you lost. The components of medical weight loss are always tailored to your specific situation.
