Weight Loss Q&A

Why should I choose medical weight loss?

Family Care & Wellness offers medically supervised and highly effective weight loss plans to help you reach your goal weight. Providers use customized meal plans and FDA-approved Semaglutide weight loss injectables (Ozempic® and Wegovy®) to help you achieve a healthier weight.

The injections work by allowing your body to release the proper amount of insulin and effectively move sugar from your blood into body tissues. The injections can also decrease your appetite, making it easier to reduce your calorie intake for effective weight loss.

  • Reduced appetite
  • Easier weight loss
  • High success rates

The experts at Family Care & Wellness customize a plan just for you based on your goal weight, lifestyle, and food preferences.

What should I expect during medical weight loss?

During your first medical weight loss visit to Family Care & Wellness, the providers weigh you, determine your body mass index (BMI), and check your blood pressure, pulse, and other vital signs. They complete a physical exam to look for signs of potential medical problems that may impact your weight loss. 

Specialists discuss your diet, exercise, sleep, and other lifestyle habits, as well as your medical history and desired outcome. They often recommend undergoing blood tests to detect or rule out high cholesterol, high blood sugar, hormone imbalance, nutritional deficiencies, and more.

The Family Care & Wellness team tailors a weight loss plan based on your personalized needs. In addition to eating nutritious foods, follow your exercise plan and get at least seven hours of sleep each night. You might administer Semaglutide weight loss injections once weekly or as directed by your provider. Hormone replacement therapy might also be an option.  

How much weight can I lose with medical weight loss?

The amount of weight you can lose during medical weight loss at Family Care & Wellness depends on your goal weight and how well you adhere to your program. You might lose 1-2 pounds per week or more in some cases.

Your weight loss specialist can make changes to your plan as needed to ensure exceptional results.
