What is Medical Weight Loss?
Our physician-directed medical weight loss Tampa program combines lipid analysis, low glycemic impact eating, appetite suppressants and/or metabolic boosters, and nutrition education. It provides an essential plan for losing weight and the necessary direction for maintaining a healthy new lifestyle. When you’ve failed at other methods, medical weight loss could be just what you need to drop those extra pounds and be a healthier you.
How does it work?
During your initial visit, you will complete a questionnaire which asks about current and past health and living habits. Next, you will meet with one of our highly trained medical weight loss doctors or nurses to review your health history and consult with you about your health and well-being goals. If it is likely that you could benefit from treatment, you will have an extensive bloodwork evaluation, EKG, medical history evaluation. This testing will tell if your blood chemistry is accelerating the process of weight gain and if there are other factors about which our doctors need to be aware. The results from these tests give us a better understanding of the patient’s total health profile and also act as a starting point for comparison throughout the duration of the patient’s treatment.
Then it’s time to work! Together we will build a customized weight loss plan, which may include diet, exercise, appetite suppressants and/or B12, MIC or B-Complex injections, as well as weekly or monthly follow up appointments. During these visits we monitor your progress and review, assess, and occasionally revise the program for optimal results. We also address other factors that can influence weight gain including stress relief and motivational coaching with the goal of overall wellness in mind.
What is a MIC Shot?
The MIC Shot is a combination of Methionine, Inositol, and Choline. These lipotropics enhance fat mobilization and energy levels. Mobilization of fat is important since your body cannot burn fat unless the adipose cells (fat cells) actually release fat molecules into the bloodstream. Once fat is circulating in the bloodstream, it is accessible by muscle cells, liver cells, and other tissue to be broken down and used as energy. If fat is not released from its stores, your body will break down muscle tissue instead. MIC shots are a valuable addition to any weight loss regimen, and they can be administered weekly, biweekly, or monthly depending on your schedule. The MIC Shots are supplemental to weight loss, and the shots can be administered before, during, and after diet programs.
Weight Loss Results:
To ensure your treatment is producing the desired results, we will schedule regular follow-up visits with you. Keep in mind that everyone is different and no one treatment option, dose of medicine, or dietary plan fits all. The correct medications are determined based on laboratory results, individual goals, severity of symptoms, age, gender and body size. Your customized treatment is completely supervised by our doctors to ensure that everything is done properly, safely and successfully. Remember, at Lecada, we treat the whole you, not just your weight.
HcG Weight Loss Treatments:
HCG stands for human chorionic gonadotropin, a hormone naturally produced by the placenta in pregnant women that almost completely controls the metabolic function through the hypothalamus during pregnancy. As a weight loss protocol, HCG controls the metabolic function through the hypothalamus in men and women. You can read more about our HCG Weight Loss Program here.
