Medical Weight Loss
Medical weight loss is a safe and effective approach to successful weight loss and improved health. It combines a patient-centered approach with evidence-based medical and lifestyle interventions to help people reach their weight loss goals.
Medical weight loss is designed to be sustainable and to provide long-term results. Medical weight loss aims to help individuals achieve and maintain a healthy weight safely and effectively. At Elite Health Online, the process involves evaluating a patient’s current health and medical history, determining their individual needs and goals, and then working with the patient to produce a personalized weight loss program. The program typically involves recommendations surrounding dieting, exercise, and medications.
Benefits of Medical Weight Loss
The benefits of medical weight loss are numerous. Not only can it help people reach their desired weight, but it can also improve overall health. Some of the most significant benefits include the following:
Improved health: One of the main benefits of medical weight loss is that it can help to improve overall health and well-being. Being overweight or obese is associated with various health problems, including heart disease, diabetes, and certain types of cancer. Losing weight can help to reduce the risk of these conditions and improve overall health.
Increased energy: Losing weight can also lead to increased energy levels. As you lose weight, your body becomes more efficient, and you may experience increased energy and vitality. When you carry excess weight, your body has to work harder to perform everyday tasks, which can lead to feelings of fatigue.
Improved mental health: Medical weight loss can also positively impact mental health. Being overweight or obese can lead to feelings of low self-esteem and depression, and losing weight can help to improve these feelings. Additionally, the process of losing weight can be empowering and can help to boost confidence and self-esteem.
Better sleep: Losing weight can also lead to improved sleep. Being overweight or obese is associated with an increased risk of sleep apnea and other sleep disorders, which can disrupt sleep and lead to fatigue. As you lose weight, you may experience improved sleep quality and duration.
Increased mobility: Carrying excess weight can make it more difficult to move and be physically active. As you lose weight, you may find it easier to move and participate in physical activities, which can improve mobility and flexibility.
At Elite Health Online, we have several medications that can be used as part of a medical weight loss program to help individuals lose weight.
Semaglutide, an injectable drug already approved by the Food and Drug Administration as a treatment for Type 2 diabetes, produced moderate weight loss at its dose of 1 milligram weekly. Participants lost an average of 37 pounds through Semaglutide and diet changes. What this medicine does is help patients adhere to a reduced-calorie diet. It increases insulin secretion, which is good for diabetes. But at higher doses, it acts on centers in the brain and suppresses appetite. It is important to use this medication in conjunction with lifestyle intervention.
Thermogenics – Phentermine
Thermogenics are a group of drugs, supplements, and other substances that aim to increase metabolism to burn fat and produce energy. Phentermine is one commonly used thermogenic drug that suppresses the appetite as it increases your body’s fat-burning rate. It also helps regulate blood sugar levels and can promote greater mental clarity.
Low Dose Naltrexone
Low-dose Naltrexone (LDN) has become increasingly popular for losing weight, with its use growing more widespread in recent years. It’s a drug used since the mid-1980s to help treat opioid and alcohol dependence, but only recently has it been looked at for its potential effectiveness in helping people lose weight. Low-dose Naltrexone (LDN) is a medication that is gaining popularity as a weight loss aid due to its ability to help reduce appetite, reduce cravings, and improve energy. It works by blocking endorphins, the body’s natural pleasure-inducing chemicals, from binding to opioid receptors in the brain. This blockage can help reduce appetite and cravings and increase energy levels.
Lipotropic Injections – Skinny Shots
Lipotropic injections, commonly known as “skinny shots,” are a type of injection used to help with weight loss. The injections are made up of a combination of different vitamins and amino acids, which help to speed up the metabolism and break down fat cells. They are often combined with a healthy diet and exercise program to maximize the results.
Lipotropic injections increase the body’s ability to process fat by breaking down fat cells more quickly and efficiently. This means that more energy is available to be used by the body, thus allowing for more weight loss. The injections also help to reduce cholesterol levels and increase energy levels.
CJC 1295 + Ipamorelin
CJC 1295 and Ipamorelin work synergistically to increase the release of growth hormone (GH) and insulin-like growth factor 1 (IGF-1). CJC 1295 increases the release of GH, while Ipamorelin stimulates the body to release more GH in response to increased levels of GH in the bloodstream. Together, these two peptides can help promote lean muscle mass while decreasing body fat. They can also help improve skin elasticity, bone density, and sleep quality.
Weight loss can help reduce the risk of developing chronic health conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke. It can also reduce the risk of certain types of cancer. Additionally, losing weight can improve mental health and quality of life and minimize the risk of depression and anxiety. Furthermore, medical weight loss can help people look and feel their best, reducing the risk of specific physical disabilities. Ultimately, medical weight loss is an effective approach to successful weight loss and improved health.
