Many different health problems have been clearly linked to being overweight or obese. If you’re carrying a significant volume of extra weight, your risk of developing one or more of these conditions is high.

Losing weight can reduce your risk of the following health issues:

  • Heart disease
  • Diabetes
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Stroke
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Depression
  • Dementia
  • Liver disease

These are just a few of the health problems that can arise when you’re overweight or obese. Finding a weight loss program that works for you is one of the best things you can do to boost your overall health and wellness.

How does medical weight loss work?

Medical weight loss is an approach that keeps your health as the central focus. Unlike fad diets or extreme exercise plans, medical weight loss strives to help you lose weight and keep it off, without pushing your body beyond its limits.

Medication might play a role in your weight loss journey. Semaglutide is one of the most commonly used weight loss medications and is known by the brand name Ozempic®. Mounjaro® is another option that can help control your appetite and allow you to feel full while eating a healthy volume of food.

B12 injections are also a great way to support your weight loss goals. They only take just seconds to administer.

Many people find that IV therapy is also beneficial. This option uses a needle and medical tubing to deliver a custom blend of nutrients directly into your bloodstream, fueling your system without the need to move through your digestive tract.

Of course, finding ways to incorporate meaningful lifestyle modifications into your routines is an essential part of any weight loss journey. Improving your nutrition and getting plenty of exercise will go a long way toward helping you reach and maintain your goals.

How long does it take to see results from medical weight loss?

Everyone has a unique experience with weight loss, and there’s no way to predict exactly how long it will take you to reach your goals. When you entrust Renew At Ease Wellness with your care, you receive professional guidance and support from start to finish.

Even after you’ve reached your goal weight, the practitioners remain dedicated to helping you enhance your overall health and wellness. If you’re ready to learn more, book a visit online or by phone.
