Weight Loss Q & A

What is medically supervised weight loss?

Medically supervised weight loss with Dr. Rodriguez includes personalized nutrition plans, medications, hormone therapy when necessary, and lifestyle education. Your customized plan makes weight loss simple and long-lasting, so you don’t have to worry about fad dieting or regaining lost weight.

Which benefits does medical weight loss offer?

If you carry excess body weight, achieving an ideal weight offers numerous advantages, including:

  • Lower blood pressure
  • Better blood sugar control
  • Reduced risk of diabetes and heart disease
  • Improved chronic disease management
  • Less stress, anxiety, or depression
  • Mood improvements
  • More energy 
  • Better workouts
  • Leaner physique 
  • Greater self-confidence
  • Better quality of life

You can look younger, feel better, and have a longer life expectancy after reaching a healthy weight. Medical weight loss helps reduce your appetite, making it easier to eat fewer calories.

Am I a candidate for medically supervised weight loss?

Anyone with a body mass index (BMI) in the overweight or obese category is a candidate for medically supervised weight loss with Dr. Rodriguez. 

To determine which plan is best, she weighs you, discusses your medical history, reviews your typical diet and exercise habits, and completes a physical exam. Blood tests determine if you have a chronic disease, its risk factors, nutritional deficiencies, hormone imbalances, depression, anxiety, or other conditions that can affect weight loss.

What happens during medical weight loss?

Dr. Rodriguez meets with you in person or virtually and offers the following medical weight loss solutions:

  • Custom meal and exercise plans
  • Health coaching
  • Mental health treatments
  • Dietary supplements
  • Weight loss medications (semaglutide or tirzepatide injections)
  • Hormone replacement therapy as needed

Semaglutide, tirzepatide, and other weight loss injections are GLP-1 agonists, which are diabetes medicines that help control blood sugar levels in people with Type 2 diabetes. These injectable medications also aid in weight loss by reducing food cravings and your appetite. 

Dr. Rodriquez helps you better manage a chronic disease with lifestyle education or medication management during your weight loss journey. You can use your insurance or sign up for an affordable membership plan with Dr. Rodriguez, where you simply pay a low monthly fee for unlimited access to health care with her. 

Follow up with Dr. Rodriguez as directed and whenever you have concerns or questions about your weight loss plan. After you reach your goal weight, she helps you maintain your new weight and exceptional health long-term.
