What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is a supervised approach to losing weight under the guidance of experienced health care professionals. It involves using evidence-based strategies, personalized meal plans, and other medical interventions to accelerate weight loss and improve your overall health.

Who should consider medical weight loss?

If you’ve tried to lose weight on your own without sustainable success, guidance from a professional can help deliver long-term results. Medical weight loss is particularly beneficial for people with a body mass index (BMI) in the overweight or obese range. 

Medical weight loss can significantly improve your health and well-being by:

  • Boosting energy levels
  • Relieving joint pain
  • Reducing your risk of diabetes, hypertension, and other chronic diseases
  • Lowering blood pressure
  • Reducing cholesterol
  • Regulating blood sugar
  • Improving sleep quality
  • Enhancing cardiovascular fitness

Medical weight loss provides ongoing support, accountability, and education throughout your weight loss journey to improve your quality of life now and in the future.

What does medical weight loss involve?

Toni provides individualized support and guidance to help you maintain a healthy weight. At Zorumske Family Practice, Toni offers:

Semaglutide injections

Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist (GLP-1 agonist) that regulates your blood sugar. While traditionally used to treat diabetes, semaglutide has recently been FDA-approved to accelerate weight loss. 

By mimicking hormones your body already produces, semaglutide slows gastric emptying, which keeps you feeling fuller and satiated longer. These once-weekly injections can help support sustainable weight loss when paired with a healthy diet and exercise.

Dietician support

Dietician support provides personalized guidance and expertise in nutrition and dietary management. Toni can design an individualized meal plan that addresses your needs and weight loss goals.

Weight loss medications

Toni offers several medications to help suppress your appetite and control cravings to support healthy weight loss.

With extensive experience in weight loss support, Toni works with you to develop a plan that considers your individual genetics, metabolism, lifestyle, preferences, and health status to create a personalized approach for long-term weight loss.
