Medical Weight Loss Management Q&A

How can medical weight-loss management improve my health?

Being overweight or obese places enormous strain on your organs and bodily systems and increases your risk of a wide array of chronic health issues. Your body simply cannot function normally when you’re carrying significant extra weight. 

Moving closer to a healthy weight can dramatically reduce your risk of the following conditions:

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

These are just some of the health issues you might face if you are overweight or obese. Medical weight-loss management is a powerful tool you can use to effectively lose weight and maintain those results.  

How is medical weight-loss management different?

Anyone can drop pounds through fad diets or extreme exercise plans. The problem is, those results are almost never sustainable. As soon as you resume your normal habits, the weight quickly returns. 

Medical weight-loss management takes a different approach, one that focuses on creating sustainable improvements that support health and wellness. Your health remains at the center of that focus, and you’re never asked to push your body beyond healthy limits. 

Medication might play a role in your weight-loss program. Options like semaglutide, GLP-1 agonists, and tirzepatide can help by controlling appetite and improving the way your body converts food into energy. 

If you choose to include drug therapy in your weight-loss plan, the Marina Medispa team will continue to monitor your health as you work toward your goals.   

What role do lifestyle modifications play in medical weight-loss management?

The choices you make each day in regard to exercise and nutrition will significantly affect your weight-loss journey. Medication can give you a definite boost, especially in the early phases of weight loss. But diet and exercise are the factors that will get you over the finish line and support health and wellness for the rest of your life. 

Your team works with you to find ways to replace highly processed food with fruit, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats. You’ll also explore ways to stay active each and every day, without spending hours at the gym.
