What are the benefits of weight loss?

Being overweight or obese increases your risk for many chronic health conditions, including:

  • Stroke
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Heart disease
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sleep apnea

In addition to physical illness, obesity can also cause mental health issues like depression and anxiety.

Losing even a small percentage of weight can significantly reduce your risk for chronic disease, pain, and premature death. A medically supervised weight loss program can help you achieve an ideal body weight, boost your self-esteem, increase your energy levels, and optimize your quality of life.

Anodyne Pain & Wellness Solutions provides customized weight loss plans for adults. The medical team offers resources that support healthy weight loss and gives you the tools you need to keep the weight off for good.

When should I consider a medical weight loss program?

You can benefit from the medical weight loss programs available at Anodyne Pain & Wellness Solutions if you’re overweight or obese but aren’t sure how to lose weight on your own.

The team can also recommend a customized weight loss program if you already have or are at high risk for obesity-related medical issues like Type 2 diabetes or heart disease.

Additionally, a medically supervised program is ideal for those with existing health issues interfering with successful weight loss. For instance, thyroid disease can affect your metabolism and make weight loss difficult, even with regular exercise and a healthy diet.

What is included in a medical weight loss program?

The Anodyne Pain & Wellness Solutions medical team completes a thorough health evaluation to assess your needs and identify your weight loss goals. They customize a weight loss program that may include:

  • Daily exercise
  • Organized meal plans
  • Vitamin B12 injections
  • Semaglutide appetite suppressant
  • Lipotropic (methionine + inositol + choline) injections

During routine visits, the team monitors your weight loss to keep you accountable to the program. As you achieve milestones on your weight loss journey, they help you set new goals and continue to offer the resources you need to stay on track with the program.

The medical weight loss program also emphasizes lifestyle and behavior changes that make it easier to maintain your results in the long term. For instance, you learn to control your portion sizes, read nutrition labels, and make healthier food choices.
