What happens during medical weight loss?

During an initial medical weight loss consultation, Dr. Patterson and his team weigh you, check your blood pressure and other vital signs, review your medical history, and discuss weight loss goals. He might use blood tests to evaluate blood cholesterol, triglycerides, blood sugar, hormone levels, and signs of nutritional deficiencies or other health issues.

Dr. Patterson and his team develop a personalized weight loss program that might include:

Custom meal plans

Having a structured diet and exercise program in place takes the guesswork out of effective weight loss.

Nutritional supplements

Taking meal replacement shakes or other dietary supplements can control your appetite, prevent nutritional deficiencies, lower disease risks, and make it easier to reduce calories.

Medications

If you have a chronic disease or disease risk factors, Dr. Patterson might recommend medications to prevent complications, keep you healthy, and make weight loss easier.

Hormone replacement

Hormone imbalance can contribute to slow metabolism and failed weight loss attempts. If you suffer from thyroid, testosterone, estrogen, or progesterone imbalance, BioTE® and other forms of hormone replacement therapy at Back to Basics Medical Practice PLLC can enhance weight loss.

How much weight can I lose?

Choosing medical weight loss can help you lose up to five pounds weekly, depending on your initial body weight and how well you adhere to the program.
