MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS

How is Medical Weight Loss Different?

 

If you struggle with your weight Dr. Davidson can help by providing

medically supervised services in her office in Greenwood, IN. You should

know, however, that prescription Weight loss drugs are used in addition to

—not instead of — diet and exercise.

 

How Well Do Weight Loss Drugs Work?

All prescription Weight loss drugs approved for long-term use produce significant weight loss compared with placebo. In addition, studies show that the addition of Weight loss medication to lifestyle changes results in greater weight loss than lifestyle changes alone produce.

 

Over the course of 12 months, that can mean a weight loss of 3 to 7 percent of total body weight beyond that achieved with lifestyle changes alone. That may seem like a modest amount, but a sustained weight loss of 5 to 10 percent of total body weight can have health benefits, such as lowering blood pressure, blood sugar and triglyceride levels.

From the Mayo Clinic:

Are you an adult who is overweight or obese and has serious health problems because of your weight? Have you tried diet and exercise but haven't been able to achieve significant weight loss? If you answered yes to these questions, then a prescription Weight loss drug might be an option for you.
