Medical Weight Loss Q&A
What is medical weight loss?
Medical weight loss is a physician-supervised program to help you shed excess weight rapidly and safely. The medical weight loss program at The Center for Integrative and Functional Health and Wellness takes a whole-person approach to weight loss.
They’re here to help you improve all aspects of your health while becoming the thinner person you long to be. You’ll have a new, leaner body and significantly improved health at the end of the medical weight loss program.
Why do I need lab testing for medical weight loss?
Your medical weight loss journey starts with comprehensive lab testing. These lab tests can identify the many health factors that help you lose weight. For example, certain gut bacteria can keep you from losing weight, so improving your gut health can help you lose weight.
Another common example is hormones. A hormone imbalance can cause weight gain, but you might never know about the imbalance (and never have it treated) unless your doctor tests for it.
Lab testing also identifies nutritional deficiencies that you can quickly fix by changing your diet and taking supplements.
Essentially, lab testing identifies weight loss obstacles so that you can take proactive steps to eliminate those obstacles and clear your path to a healthy weight.
