IMedical Weight Management Program
When you’re overweight, losing weight can feel like a challenge, no matter how much you want it. Sometimes it might seem like our minds are working against us, making up excuses and ways to keep us from achieving our weight goals.
It’s natural for anyone trying to lose weight to want to lose it very quickly. But people who lose weight gradually and steadily (about 0.5kg to 1kg per week) are more successful at keeping weight off.
The issue with being overweight is not simply aesthetics in terms of body shape and size. Being overweight is a serious health risk as it can lead to other medical problems such as diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea, kidney disease, certain types of cancer, and many more. In this case, even a modest weight loss of 5 to 10 percent of your total body weight is likely to produce health benefits, such as improvements in blood pressure, blood cholesterol, and blood sugars.
IMedical weight management program is suitable for both male and female and is recommended for those with a BMI of 27 and above. The therapy combines consultation with screening results with prescribed medication to help patients with weight loss.
Process of treatment:
Prior to starting treatment, series of tests will be ordered to determine main health indicators. These tests will include basic health screening, family and medical history checks as well as screening for cholesterol, blood pressure, blood sugar, diabetes check, visceral fats, cardiac profile, etc.
Thereafter, we will prescribe medication for the patient to help in your weight loss journey. Weight loss is generally considered a long-term therapy and patients need to be monitored regularly. Patients will have to go through reviews with the doctor on a monthly basis to discuss if goals are reached and if any adjustment to the medication dosage has to be adjusted.
NOTE: While the IMedical weight management program can be a great addition to one’s weight loss journey, it is not necessarily a substitute for healthy lifestyle decisions such as getting appropriate amounts of exercise or choosing foods that support the weight loss goals.
