Medical Weight Loss Q&A

How does medical weight loss improve my health?

Being overweight zaps your energy and takes a toll on your self-esteem. Carrying extra pounds also increases your risk of developing osteoarthritis.

Your overall health is also at risk as fat cells release hormones and substances that trigger inflammation throughout your body, which can lead to severe health conditions like:

  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • High cholesterol
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Sleep apnea
  • Liver disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Some cancers

Excess body weight makes you more likely to develop 13 different cancers, including breast, colon, liver, and pancreas cancers.

What are the benefits of medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss provided by the caring team at Apollo Physicians helps you achieve your weight goals by:


Identifying and treating medical roadblocks

Hormone imbalances will sabotage your ability to lose weight. For example, hormones tell your body to store fat when you’re trying to lose weight, and nutritional deficiencies slow your metabolism. If you frequently feel stressed, stress hormones lead to weight gain.


Providing support and motivation

Patients are more likely to successfully reach their weight loss goals when the Apollo Physicians team encourages, supports, and motivates them. It also helps to know you’re accountable for achieving your goals.


Providing expert information

Your weight loss journey is easier with expert information and guidance to help you navigate the overwhelming number of fad diets and food choices.

What happens during medical weight loss?

Your provider learns about your medical, weight loss, and diet history. Then they complete a physical exam, finding any health conditions that should be treated or considered when creating a weight loss plan.

They work closely with you to determine weight loss goals and create a personalized plan that works for you.

You can take advantage of a range of weight loss services, including:

  • Nutrition counseling
  • Meal planning
  • Exercise recommendations
  • Dietary supplements
  • Stress management
  • Behavioral changes (to eliminate ingrained habits)
  • Prescription weight-loss medication

Your provider might recommend one of several weight-loss medications based on your needs. These medications promote weight loss by regulating your appetite or controlling food cravings. Others help you feel full after eating less food or reduce your body’s fat absorption.
