What can I expect during a weight loss program?
During an initial evaluation for medically supervised weight loss, Dr. Marwaha and the team spend time getting to understand a patient’s needs and their medical history. Our doctors assess lifestyle, job, and other aspects of a patient’s life to determine what changes can help them lose weight.
Nutritional and dietary counseling is an important first step in successful weight loss. This involves a review of a patient’s diet and eating habits, and making suggestions to improving their diet.
Patients may start by eliminating processed foods from their diet and incorporating more fresh vegetables and fruits. Dr. Marwaha and his team help patients plan meals to meet their nutritional needs.
Our Naperville Internist doctors also review patient’s exercise routines and work with them on increasing their daily exercise. We may suggest exercises patients can do based on their existing health and medical history.
Our team also holds patients accountable for their efforts at weight loss through routine weigh-ins and general health checks.
In addition to helping patients maintain a healthy weight, our doctors also offer aesthetic services to help patients look their best, including Kybella® injections and anti-aging injections of Botox® and dermal fillers.
When should I consider weight loss services?
When patients can’t lose weight on your own, medically supervised weight loss services may be the answer. This is especially true for patients that are overweight or obese.
Maintaining a healthy body weight is important for general health and also for reducing the 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), patients can also take unnecessary pressure off their joints. Chronic pain often comes from joints worn down by this excessive pressure.
Weight loss also makes it easier for patients to be physically active, so they can maintain their results in the long term.
