Medical Weight Loss
A weight loss package designed to work with your current diet and exercise program
Maintaining a consistent diet and exercise plan can be challenging at any age, and especially if you have low testosterone. If low T is affecting your weight loss goals, a program combining medically supervised weight loss with testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) may be your best solution.
What is included in the Men’s Health medical weight loss program?
Weight loss often yields better results if it’s done through a team effort, and our medical weight loss package is designed to work in combination with your current diet and exercise program.
The Men’s Health weight loss program includes the following services:
A comprehensive medical exam by our board-certified physician: Also known as executive physicals, this may include laboratory tests, chest x-rays, pulmonary function testing, audiograms, full body CT scans, EKGs, heart stress tests, vascular age tests, urinalysis, and a prostate exam.
InBody composition analysis: InBody is a non-invasive body composition test that uses Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis to deliver a detailed breakdown of your weight in terms of muscle, fat, and water.
Prescription appetite suppressants: There are four drugs approved by the FDA for long term use in weight loss patients that work to decrease appetite, increase feelings of fullness, and interfere with absorption of fat. These include:
- Bupropion-naltrexone (Contrave)
- Liraglutide (Saxenda)
- Orlistat (Xenical)
- Phentermine-topiramate (Qsymia)
Weekly Lipo-C injections: The Lipo-C shot is a custom formulated injection that supports a healthy immune system and optimizes hormone function, boosts your metabolism, and improves fat burning. The ingredients contained in the Lipo-C injection are Methionine, Inositol, Choline Chloride, L-Carnitine, Thiamine HCl, and Dexpanthenol.
Weekly B12 injections: Since your body does not make or store vitamin B12, you must get it from food or supplements. Vitamin B12 plays a key role in the normal functioning of the brain and nervous system, as well as aiding in the formation of red blood cells. It can also increase energy levels, which promotes weight loss. The ingredient of the B12 injection is hydroxocobalamin or cyanocobalamin. Learn more about Vitamin B12.
A low carb eating plan and/or intermittent fasting plan (if needed): A simple, easy-to-follow meal plan that’s customized to fit your lifestyle and personal needs.
What results can I expect from committing to a medically supervised weight loss plan?
Losing even just 5 or 10 pounds can have a noticeable impact on your confidence and mental health. When combined with TRT, increasing testosterone levels in your body results in more energy, enabling you to more easily exercise, feel healthier, and drop pounds.
