Back To Medical Weight Loss

In our medical weight loss program, significant weight reduction is achievable with patients typically losing 2-8 pounds per week on a complete meal replacement program. Close monitoring by an experienced bariatrician like Dr. Hubert is essential to ensure that your body tolerates the changes and that you maintain consistent weight loss.

Weight loss has a profound effect on blood pressure, blood sugar, and cholesterol. Hence, during the weight loss process, adjustments to the medications you may be taking to treat hypertension, diabetes, or hyperlipidemia are likely necessary. Medical monitoring ensures that you are receiving adequate nutrition, and that your body systems are functioning properly to process and eliminate excess body fat without breaking down muscle.

FDA-approved weight loss medications can be used in some situations.

Medical monitoring begins with a thorough consultation by Dr. Hubert to determine your health status and identify any medical conditions that may be interfering with your weight loss efforts. After conducting a consultation, reviewing your lab results, and discussing your weight and health goals, Dr. Hubert will develop a personalized medical weight loss plan to meet your specific needs.
