Health Complications Associated With Obesity
Obesity increases the risk of medical conditions like:
· Cardiovascular diseases
· Fatty liver disease
The excess body weight exerts more stress and pressure on your bones, organs, and muscles.
Medical Weight Loss and Obesity
Medical weight loss entails regular visits to a medical professional versed in weight loss. A specialist like Dr. Suri combines weight loss therapies like:
§ Medication and pharmacotherapy
§ Rehabilitative exercise
§ Behavioral counseling
§ Diagnostic testing
§ Nutrition training
§ Valuable information and education
Dr. Suri completes a bio-metabolic analysis to determine the total calories you burn while resting through the BIA (bioelectrical impedance testing) and the InBody 250®.
A body composition assessment evaluates your minerals, lean body mass, and body water. Dr. Suri takes lab tests like the thyroid profile, metabolic panel, lipid panel, and electrocardiogram/ EKG to check your heart health.
At Nova Physician Wellness Center, Dr. Suri helps you find a fully personalized exercise plan that meets your needs.
Dr. Suri recommends an effective dietary plan to ensure that you consume more food to energize your body. You may qualify for nutritional supplementation, meal replacement products, and individualized meal plans.
Effective Medication for Weight Loss
If the need arises, Dr. Suri may recommend pharmacotherapy through medication options like:
Dr. Suri uses Belviq, a weight loss medication targeting hunger receptors in the brain. Belviq should be taken once or twice per day for the stipulated period. The main ingredient, Lorcaserin, helps you feel satisfied with less food than you ate before.
Contrave is believed to work on the hunger center and reward system to help you lose weight and get a hold of cravings. Each contrave contains bupropion and naltrexone, working hand in hand to control your cravings and reduce hunger.
Dr. Suri may recommend Qysmia to help you control hunger cravings and 24/7 control of your cravings. You are required to take Qysmia to reduce topiramate levels and appetite to help you feel full all day. The medication also changes the taste of certain foods making you more obese.
This appetite suppressant helps you reduce weight by reducing your hunger and allowing you to feel full for much longer. Similar to amphetamine, phentermine affects your central nervous system without short- or long-term side effects.
Dr. Suri considers your weight goals, medical, and family history to determine the most effective medication for your needs.
Behavioral treatment programs consist of cognitive restructuring of dysfunctional or erroneous beliefs surrounding weight regulation. Cognitive behavior therapists apply techniques to identify your triggers for overeating and help you deal with negative attitudes linked to obesity.
Emotional and psychological factors are essential parts of weight management programs. You can visit Nova Physician Wellness Center to get control over your poor eating habits and psychological issues linked to minor dietary infractions.
