Medical Weight Loss

If you’re carrying a significant volume of extra weight, losing weight can dramatically reduce your risk of serious health outcomes. Under the care of Amanda Aydin, FNP-C, of Visiting Medical Clinic, LLC, medical weight loss offers an outstanding way to move closer to a healthy weight. Visits can be booked online or over the phone.

How can medical weight loss improve overall health?

Extensive research shows a direct link between being overweight or obese and a wide range of chronic health conditions. Some of the issues you might face if you are carrying excess weight include:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Kidney disease
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Depression
  • Dementia
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Pregnancy complications
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sleep apnea

Losing weight, even a small amount of weight will change your risk levels for these and many other serious health conditions. 

How is medical weight loss different?

If you’re like many people, you’ve probably already tried a range of diets and exercise plans. You might even have achieved some success, only to watch the weight return as soon as you move away from highly restrictive diets or extreme exercise routines. 

Medical weight loss takes a different approach, placing your health as the central focus. Medications might help you lose weight by controlling your appetite or enhancing how your body converts food into energy. Drug therapy, however, is never used as a stand-alone treatment option. 

Amanda works closely with you to find ways to make meaningful improvements to your daily habits. You’ll learn how to replace highly processed foods with more fruit, vegetables, whole grains, and healthy fats. You’ll also explore ways to incorporate more physical activity into your daily routines. 

How long does it take to see results with medical weight loss?

Many people see almost immediate weight loss once they begin the program. These initial results are exciting and can be motivating, but lasting weight loss is much more of a marathon than a sprint. 

Your treatment timeline depends on the volume of weight you need to lose and how your body responds to your weight loss treatment. You’ll have the full support and guidance of the Visiting Medical Clinic team as you move through the process. 

Some people choose to continue meeting with Amanda even after they’ve reached their weight loss goals. These visits focus on maintaining weight loss and enjoying renewed health and wellness. No matter how long your weight loss journey takes, you can always return for check-ins and guidance. 

Medical weight loss is available through both in-office visits and telemedicine appointments. When you’re ready to learn more, booking an appointment takes just moments online or over the phone.
