    Weight Loss and Vitamin Levels

    Ideally, we should eat a nutritious, well-balanced diet that provides us with all the vitamins and minerals we need. However, many patients are found to have various deficiencies that may negatively affect their health. Most people do not realize that vitamin deficiencies may cause significant health problems and prevent weight loss.

    This study found a correlation between low Vitamin D levels and obesity. While there may be several reasons for this finding, checking and improving your Vitamin D levels can improve energy levels and increase weight loss. At A Personal Physician, we can obtain and monitor necessary labs to check your vitamin levels to create a personalized treatment plan.

    Weight Loss Medication

    While eating less is the main component of weight loss, many patients will benefit from prescription weight loss medications. Typically, a personal physician can prescribe these drugs to patients who have failed initial treatments and have a BMI over 30. We can also use these medications to treat patients with a BMI over 27 if they have high blood pressure, coronary artery disease or type 2 diabetes.

    You must keep in mind that these drugs are no replacement for a low-calorie diet and regular exercise. For your safety, you should have an honest dialogue with us about your medical history. This includes information on allergies and other medical conditions, including drugs and over the counter supplements you may be taking. Female patients should also clarify if they are pregnant, breastfeeding, or planning to get pregnant soon as this can change and guide treatment.

    Medically Monitored Weight Loss

    Many patients are intimidated by the prospect of losing a significant amount of weight on their own. You may not know where to start. You may feel discouraged after failing to lose weight on your own. A Personal Physician offers medically monitored weight loss programs that can walk you through one step at a time. Medically monitored weight loss programs are proven to lead to significant weight loss. A personal physician can customize the programs to your lifestyle and needs to achieve your goals. We offer personalized advice on diet and exercise, and a personal physician can prescribe weight loss medications if necessary. You can opt to have access to weekly or monthly check-ins and access to a registered dietitian to answer any questions or concerns. As our programs are all planned by your personal physician, you can rest knowing that you are in good hands.

    Diabetes Reversal

    Type 2 diabetes, also known as adult-onset diabetes, is a condition that prevents the body from using sugar properly. While it is incurable, it can be reversed — especially when the patient is in the pre-diabetes stage. Diabetes reversal involves significant diet changes and approximately 10% weight loss to allow the patient to reach and maintain normal blood sugar levels without medication.

    For many patients, exercise, fasting, and a low-calorie diet are effective to reverse diabetes. However, patients should not attempt such methods without medical supervision. Otherwise, patients may risk of aggravating their overall physical condition and regaining the weight lost. Working with a personal physician can maximize your chances of success.

    Weight Gain

    It is an unfortunate reality for many patients: They shed pounds and cannot keep them off. Various factors can influence a person's ability to maintain weight loss. Some of these are fixed (age, genetics, sex), while others are modifiable. Patients may have an unhealthy diet or exercise routine that delivers inconsistent results.

    Some individuals may also experience sudden weight gain out of nowhere rather than "rebounding." This can be distressing, especially to individuals with healthy lifestyles who have made no significant changes. A Personal Physician can help you pinpoint what is keeping you from losing body fat percentage, maintain healthy weight loss and achieve your goals.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    What are some good sources of Vitamin D?

    It is always best to get all your needed vitamins and minerals through a well-balanced diet. However, if this is not possible, supplements can help. Foods rich in Vitamin D include fatty fish (such as halibut, salmon, trout, and tuna) and fortified foods (such as milk and yogurt).

    How do prescription weight loss drugs work?

    Weight loss medications work in different ways. Some help decrease the feeling of hunger, while others help you feel full quickly. Others may work to make it difficult for your body to absorb fat.

    Why should I choose a medically supervised weight loss program over a commercial diet?

    Our medically supervised weight loss programs are based on your personal diet. It is formulated by a personal physician, evidence-based, and will deliver reliable results with minimal adverse effects. In comparison, commercial diets often make empty claims that are not backed up by science. Weight loss shakes and products may not have healthy natural products which can cause more long-term problems such as kidney and gall stones.

    How does diabetes reversal work?

    There are various methods to reverse diabetes, and we will work together to find the best one for you. The best results of reversal was by following a low-carbohydrate low calorie diet with fasts. This type of diet lowers the body’s fat percentage levels and blood sugar levels, which also reduces the need for insulin.

    Why do I gain weight so quickly?

    There is rarely just one clear-cut answer to this question. Multiple factors can contribute to a person’s likelihood of gaining weight. Diet, exercise, energy balance, and the environment can all come into play. We can discuss all these and more in a one-on-one consultation as your personal physician.
