Weight Loss Q & A

What weight loss services are available?

To help you achieve and maintain a healthy body weight, Dr. Marwaha and the Naperville Internist team offer medically supervised weight loss services.

The providers tailor a weight loss program to your needs including:

  • Dietary changes
  • Meal planning
  • Fitness guides
  • Nutritional counseling

Dr. Marwaha and the medical staff work closely with you on your health goals to help you achieve your ideal body weight safely. They also focus on assisting you in making the lifelong changes you need to support your good health and longevity.

What can I expect during a weight loss program?

During your initial evaluation for medically supervised weight loss, Dr. Marwaha and the team spend time getting to understand your needs and your medical history. They assess your lifestyle, your job, and other aspects of your life to determine what changes can help you lose weight.

Nutritional and dietary counseling is an important first step in successful weight loss. This involves a review of your diet and eating habits and suggestions on improving your diet. 

You might start by eliminating processed foods from your diet and incorporating more fresh vegetables and fruits. Dr. Marwaha and the team help you plan meals to meet your nutritional needs.

The Naperville Internist providers also review your exercise regimen and work with you on increasing your daily exercise amounts. They may suggest exercises you can do based on your existing health and medical history.

The team also holds you accountable for your efforts at weight loss through routine weigh-ins and general health checks.

In addition to helping you maintain a healthy weight, the providers will also soon begin offering aesthetic services to help you look your best, including Kybella® injections to treat a double chin. Anti-aging injections of Botox® and dermal fillers can also enhance your natural profile. 

When should I consider weight loss services?

When you can’t lose weight on your own, medically supervised weight loss services may be your answer, especially if you’re overweight or obese.

Maintaining a healthy body weight is important for your general health and also for reducing your risk for chronic diseases relating to obesity, including high blood pressure and Type 2 diabetes.

By losing weight and reaching a healthy body mass index (BMI), you can also take unnecessary pressure off your joints. Chronic pain often comes from joints worn down by this excessive pressure. 

Furthermore, weight loss makes it easier for you to be physically active, so you can maintain your results in the long term.
