For more information about an individually customized weight loss plan, call for an appointment or schedule one online.
Attempting to lose weight on your own can be dangerous without a medical professional to guide you. The safest way to drop pounds is to embark on a weight loss program that is closely supervised by a physician. Physician-supervised weight loss programs include nutrition and lifestyle changes under the close monitoring of a licensed professional.
A medically supervised weight loss program ensures your safety and may include any of the following:
Medical weight loss programs are designed to help people who want to lose weight and develop healthier eating and lifestyle habits. Because Lifestyle Physicians offers a variety of safe, permanent weight loss options, Dr. Verma is able to treat women and men with other serious health conditions, including high blood pressure, sleep apnea, diabetes, and thyroid disease.
Obesity is recognized as a disease, just like diabetes or heart disease, and should be treated with as much attention and professional care. If left untreated, obese adults and children can develop a variety of illnesses including stroke, cancer, gallbladder conditions, gout, and osteoarthritis, to name a few. It is easier to lose weight than to treat even more serious threats to your health and well-being.
Dr. Verma begins every weight loss program by reviewing your medical and life history. He will discuss any realistic weight-loss and lifestyle goals you wish to achieve. Along with a physical exam, you undergo a complete set of lab tests, thyroid analysis, and an EKG. Once Dr. Verma has a clear picture of your overall health, he can present the most ideal combination of weight loss treatments customized to your specific needs.
