Weight Loss Q & A

Why is achieving a healthy weight important?

With two-thirds of the United States population overweight or obese, this body condition seems like the norm. But carrying extra weight accelerates aging, interferes with your self-esteem, puts you at risk of chronic disease, and can compromise your quality of life.

By losing weight, you can reduce your risk or better manage the effects of the following health concerns:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Arthritis
  • Sleep apnea
  • Infertility and poor sexual function
  • Depression

Even modest weight loss can have a great impact on unhealthy blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

What are the benefits of medically supervised weight loss?

Dr. Vudarla and her team at Summit Medicine and Wellness can help you lose weight more quickly than you might be able to on your own and ensure it’s done safely. They customize a program for you, taking into account your lifestyle, likes, and limitations. They can also help you manage any obesity-related chronic conditions as you move through the weight-loss process.

Medically supervised weight loss also gives you accountability. Regular check-ins help you stay on track with your weight-loss goals.

What is involved in a medically supervised weight-loss program?

During your free consultation, which lasts 30-45 minutes, Dr. Vudarla gets to know the habits and eating choices that may be preventing you from losing weight. She can help you understand proper portion sizes, good choices when it comes to shopping and eating out, and how to incorporate physical activity into your weight-loss plan.

At Summit Medicine and Wellness, Dr. Vudarla provides you with health and nutrition coaching, medications, and injections to help you lose weight. The injections can help you moderate your appetite so you don’t feel so hungry all the time and are better able to stick to a smart nutrition plan.

The injections are prescription medications you take at home once a day for three or six weeks. The team at Summit Medicine and Wellness usually recommends medications if you have a body mass index (BMI) body mass index of 30 or greater or if you have a BMI of 27-30 and serious medical conditions aggravated by your weight. It’s important to remember though that medications and injections aren’t a substitute for adopting a healthy lifestyle.
