Medical Weight Loss Q & A

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is a physician-supervised program customized to help you reach your weight goals. Despite what many commercial weight-loss programs might have you believe, eating less and moving more might not help you lose those unwanted pounds.

While diet and exercise are key components of any weight loss program, they’re not the only things that influence your weight. Your age, sex, health history, and genes can make it harder for you to drop those unwanted pounds.

Medical weight loss at Direct Primary Care New Braunfels is a personalized program that considers all the things that affect your weight. This makes it easier for you to reach your goal and stay there.

What are the benefits of medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss at Direct Primary Care New Braunfels offers many benefits. The primary care practice takes a holistic approach to care, focusing on your whole health, not just your weight. You don’t get a quick-fix diet at Direct Primary Care New Braunfels but a health plan you can follow for life.

Benefits of medical weight loss include:

  • Personalized weight loss plan
  • Ongoing medical monitoring and management
  • Direct access to your provider by phone, email, or text
  • Behavioral counseling to help create healthy habits

Medical weight loss also benefits you and your health. It improves blood pressure and cholesterol levels and lowers your risk of chronic diseases like diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Weight loss can also be part of your chronic disease management plan.

What can I expect during medical weight loss?

You can expect attentive and personalized care during medical weight loss at Direct Primary Care New Braunfels. The specifics of your experience depend on your weight goals, health history, and personal needs.

Before making recommendations, your provider conducts a thorough history and physical exam. They might also run lab work to look for health conditions that could affect your weight loss efforts.

Your provider talks to you about the program and the tools available to help you reach a healthy weight. This might include a nutrition and exercise plan, nutritional supplements, and/or hormone replacement therapy (HRT).

Your provider schedules regular follow-up visits to monitor your progress, cheer on your successes, and guide you through your hurdles.
