Weight Loss Management Q & A

What is weight-loss management?

Better Life Medical offers specialized medical weight-loss programs that are designed, supported, and monitored by a highly qualified medical weight-loss specialist.

With medical weight loss, you have regularly scheduled visits with your Better Life Medical provider who monitors your health and weight-loss progress.

How can medically supervised weight loss help me?

The first step is a comprehensive personal evaluation and consultation with your Better Life Medical provider. This typically includes any necessary testing, such as blood sugar levels or a hormone panel, and a review of your medical history.

Your Better Life Medical provider might suggest a number of effective weight-loss methods, such as:

  • Weekly one-on-one office visits
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Exercise plan
  • Stress management
  • Supplements and vitamins
  • Frequent body measurement and weight analysis
  • Medications, such as appetite suppressants
  • Hormone therapy to help restore hormonal balance
  • Testosterone replacement
  • Sermorelin/HGH
  • HCG weight-loss program
  • Low-calorie diets

Better Life Medical offers FDA-approved weight-loss medications and appetite suppressants, such as phentermine, sermorelin peptide GHRP-2, and Xynomax® capsules. For your convenience, Better Life Medical dispenses your weight-loss prescription medication in the office.

What are some of the complications of excess body weight?

Obesity and carrying excess weight on your body can lead to complications, including:

  • High cholesterol
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Infertility
  • Depression
  • Heart disease
  • Poor self-image
  • Diminished confidence
  • Diabetes
  • Stroke
  • Arthritis

Losing weight lowers your disease risks and protects your health.

What is HCG?

Better Life Medical provides the human chorionic gonadotropin hormone (hCG) for weight loss. In your 20s, your body’s natural production of this hormone typically drops sharply. Supplementing this growth hormone is helpful for obesity, muscle mass, and bone mineral content.

For select time periods, usually around 21 or 40 days, you can carefully use hCG under medical supervision. HCG is administered sublingually or via injection. It also acts as an appetite suppressant and helps your body use your own stored fat deposits for energy and nutrition.

Most people notice an average weight loss of between one to two pounds every day with hCG.
