Medical Weight Loss Q & A

What is medical weight loss?

Most weight loss programs focus on diet and food choices, and fail to take into account the underlying health issues that caused your weight gain and prevent you from attaining long-term weight loss results. While support groups can help, unless you understand the medical causes of your overeating, including your own personal food “triggers” and nutritional needs, losing weight and keeping it off is very difficult.

Medical weight loss with Dr. Mutafyan, referred to as Supplemental Solutions, takes an individualized approach to losing weight. He combines his medical knowledge with your very specific health and medical needs, as well as your lifestyle habits, to create a plan that works. He also provides ongoing medical supervision to help ensure optimal long-term results without compromising your overall health.

What are the benefits of medical weight loss?

In addition to helping you reach your weight loss goals, the medical weight loss program provided by Dr. Mutafyan also offers physical and emotional benefits. Being overweight or obese increases your risk of serious medical issues, including:

  • Heart diseases, heart attack, and stroke
  • Certain types of cancer
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure and high cholesterol
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Depression
  • Dementia

Carrying excess body weight also alters hormone levels and may affect your sleep cycle, which can lead to irritability and decreased productivity.

Losing weight lowers your risk of these long-term health issues and improves both your physical and emotional well-being.

How do I get started on my medical weight loss program?

To get started on the medical weight loss program, Dr. Mutafyan begins with a comprehensive examination that includes a review of your medical history, as well as lifestyle habits. He also conducts lab tests to check for health issues and nutritional deficiencies.

After your evaluation, Dr. Mutafyan creates your custom weight loss plan and has you return to the office for ongoing care and to help you stay on track. He also offers free access to a nutritionist and a gym, including training.

Weight loss is a medical issue and requires medical management for success. To get started on your medical weight loss program, call George Mutafyan, MD, today or book an appointment online.
