Weight Loss Program Q & A

Panorama City Urgent Care

Why is weight loss important?

When you carry excess body weight, it not only affects your self-confidence, it negatively affects your overall health.

More than one-third of American adults have obesity. Your BMI, or body mass index, is used to measure obesity. If your BMI is 25 or higher, you’re considered overweight. At 30 or higher, you’re obese.

Having a high BMI significantly increases your risk of developing several health conditions, including:

  • Stroke
  • Sleep apnea
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • High blood pressure

Being overweight or obese also increases your risk of cancer, especially of the prostate, breast, liver, colon, and gallbladder. In addition to physical health problems, you’re also more vulnerable to behavioral health conditions like anxiety and depression.

What are the benefits of physician-assisted weight loss?

Sometimes, especially if you’re significantly overweight, it can be challenging to lose weight without professional help. Physician-assisted weight-loss programs offered at Panorama City Urgent Care are tailored to your unique situation to ensure success without starvation.

Your family medicine physician evaluates your health through a physical examination that includes your personal and family medical history. Based on this information, a customized program is designed by a certified physician to help you achieve your weight-loss goals quickly and safely so you can reach optimal health.

Physician-assisted weight-loss programs are also designed for long-term success. While you work closely with your physician to shed pounds, your program includes comprehensive weight management strategies like nutrition and lifestyle counseling to help you develop healthier habits to keep the pounds off permanently.

What can I expect during my weight-loss program?

During your initial appointment, your doctor at Panorama City Urgent Care works with you to outline your overall hopes and concerns about your weight-loss journey. As they guide you through your personalized program, your physician monitors your progress to maximize success.

Your weight-loss program might include:

  • Exercise and diet plans
  • FDA-approved medication
  • Customized nutrition program
  • Intravenous (IV) vitamin injections
