A medical weight loss program is supervised by a medical professional specializing primarily in weight loss for individuals who have difficulty losing weight despite their efforts.
This program differs from other standard weight loss programs primarily because it’s a medical program, meaning it’s prescribed and monitored by a medical professional specializing in weight loss, like Melinda.
At The Women’s Centre, knowledgeable professionals use weight loss programs to help those having trouble controlling their eating habits, and cravings, and those who require medical assistance.
A medical weight loss program is unique because you see medical professionals specializing in weight loss. They can properly evaluate you and prepare a customized program catered specifically to you based on your blood levels, family history, or medical history.
One of the benefits of being on a medical weight loss program is that your provider can prescribe or alter medication needed to treat any underlying disease or medical disorders if they deem it medically necessary.
As part of your individualized medical weight loss program at The Women’s Centre, Melinda might recommend the following:
Wegovy is an injectable prescription medication for adults who carry excess weight (BMI ≥30) (BMI ≥27) and who also have weight-related medical problems to help them lose weight and keep it off. It should be used with increased physical activity and a reduced-calorie meal plan.
Semaglutide is sold under the brand names Ozempic®, Rybelsus®, and Wegovy and is an antidiabetic medication used for treating type 2 diabetes. It’s also an anti-obesity medication and can be used for long-term weight management.
Within your customized weight loss program at The Women’s Centre, your provider can prepare an eating diet plan structured around how much you can eat and how many calories you need to burn to reach your weight loss goal and an exercise program that works alongside your schedule.
If necessary, prescribe medications, supplements, or vitamins to help support you so that you can achieve the results you always wanted.
