Medication, such as appetite suppressants, is often prescribed to help with weight loss. These prescriptions work very well in conjunction with a lower calorie diet, and increased physical activity. Medication is prescribed in conjunction with a personalized, appointment-based approach to care.
WEIGHT LOSS LAB WORKUP
A blood test offers insight into biological processes and body functioning that can contribute to difficulty with weight management. These medical insights will be used to craft your personalized weight loss plan.
This simple 10-minute testing provides your resting metabolic rate, or RMR. The RMR shows how many calories your body burns each day so your provider is better able to customize your weight loss plan.
BREATH ACETONE TESTING
The level of acetone in your breath can reveal how much fat your body is burning. This measurement shows how well your body is responding to your nutrition plan even when you don’t yet see results on the scale.
SELF PAY PROGRAM COST
Some insurance plans cover medical weight loss. Many plans do not. If your insurance has obesity benefits we are happy to bill for services. Self pay program pricing is also available.
