Weight Loss Q & A

Why should I consider medical weight loss?

Maintaining a healthy weight is an essential part of good health. When you carry around excess weight, it puts unnecessary pressure on your joints and internal organs. Your heart and respiratory system must also work harder when physically active.

These weight-related issues can significantly increase your risk for persistent pain and chronic health conditions like:

  • Arthritis
  • Stroke
  • Heart disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)

The medically supervised weight loss services available at Next Direct Primary Care can help you lose excess weight safely and efficiently. 

The experienced providers personalize a weight loss plan based on your age, overall health, and fitness goals so you can achieve and maintain your desired results in the long term.

When should I schedule a weight loss consultation?

You should schedule a weight loss consultation at Next Direct Primary Care if you have trouble shedding extra weight through diet and exercise.

You can also benefit from medically supervised weight loss services if you have weight-related health conditions like Type 2 diabetes.

The medical team provides comprehensive health evaluations to identify factors that influence your weight. For instance, they can request blood work to identify an underlying thyroid disorder that can make weight loss difficult.

The team develops your personalized weight loss plan based on your health and weight loss goals. They also provide support resources to optimize your overall health and fitness.

What does a medically supervised weight loss program involve?

The weight loss plans available at Next Direct Primary Care include several treatments that support weight loss success. Depending on your needs, the weight loss specialists may recommend one or more strategies like:

  • Lifestyle and diet changes
  • Daily exercise
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Intravenous (IV) therapy

The physicians can also prescribe weight loss medications to improve your metabolism and curb your appetite. They offer Ozempic®, a weekly injectable medication that can help you achieve consistent weight loss under the supervision of a medical professional.

During in-office visits and virtual telemedicine appointments, the providers continue to monitor and keep you accountable for your weight loss progress. As you achieve each milestone, the team can help you set new goals and recommend lifelong changes you can make to maintain your weight loss results.
