Weight Loss Q & A

My Primary Care Clinic

How can weight-loss management help?

Weight-loss services from My Primary Care Clinic improve your chances of meeting and maintaining your weight-loss goal. Their weight-loss program provides the information you need to create a healthy lifestyle that’s sustainable for the long run.

Another important benefit of getting weight-loss help from My Primary Care Clinic is that you have people to hold you accountable and to encourage you every step of the way.

What are the health risks of being overweight?

Fat cells produce and release hormones and other substances that influence systems throughout your body. When you have excess fat, these biochemicals become imbalanced and negatively affect your health.

Your heart also works harder, and your joints are stressed when you carry extra weight. All these factors work together to increase your risk for weight-related diseases such as:

  • Prediabetes and Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Heart disease and stroke
  • Osteoporosis
  • Sleep apnea
  • Fatty liver disease
  • Kidney disease

What weight-loss services are available?

The team at My Primary Care Clinic begins with a thorough health assessment and tests, if needed, to determine if you have hormonal or nutritional imbalances. They also talk with you about the things that influence your weight and eating habits.

Your weight-loss plan is customized to fit with your goals and lifestyle, but most patients benefit from:

  • Nutrition counseling: As you lose weight, it’s important to be sure you obtain all the nutrients you need — a task that’s challenging when you cut back on calories and portions. Your provider helps you create a healthy eating plan with nutrient-rich foods.
  • Lifestyle counseling: Following a healthy lifestyle is the foundation for losing weight. Lifestyle counseling explores many areas that affect your success, including finding ways to get more exercise, evaluating the emotional and behavioral issues that trigger overeating, managing stress, and getting quality sleep.
  • Supplements: In addition to nutritional supplements to prevent deficiencies, your provider at My Primary Care Clinic may recommend one of several natural supplements that support weight loss.
  • Medications: Weight-loss medications are used for a limited time and as part of an overall weight-loss plan that includes diet and exercise. They effectively kick-start your weight loss by suppressing your appetite, making you feel full, reducing food cravings, and limiting fat absorption.
