Weight Loss Q & A

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is a weight loss program led by medical experts at Carter Cardiometabolic Health and Wellness Center. Dr. Carter and his team use various techniques and medications to help you control calories, get excess weight off, and reduce chronic disease risk factors.

If you’ve tried weight loss programs on your own without success, medical weight loss is the solution you need.

What are the benefits of medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss at Carter Cardiometabolic Health and Wellness Center offers numerous health and wellness benefits. Examples include:

  • A lower risk of diabetes and heart disease
  • More energy
  • Lower blood pressure 
  • Reduced cholesterol

Weight loss led by medical experts gives you the accountability needed to experience successful weight loss. You’re given the tools necessary to eat right, get enough exercise, plan nutritious meals and menus, and keep stress levels low.

What should I expect during medical weight loss?

The medical experts at Carter Cardiometabolic Health and Wellness Center offer comprehensive weight loss services, including diet analyses and nutrition counseling. Dr. Carter reviews your medical history, weighs you, takes your vitals, completes an exam, and orders needed blood or imaging tests to diagnose potential health problems.

Your personalized weight-loss treatment plan might include:

Nutraceuticals

Dr. Carter recommends holistic weight loss treatments whenever possible. He might suggest you take herbal or other dietary supplements to prevent nutrient deficiencies during weight loss, reduce your appetite, speed up your metabolism, or lower chronic disease risks.

Diet and exercise counseling

Knowing what and how often to eat drastically improves your chance of weight-loss success. Dr. Carter creates personalized meal, menu, and exercise plans and offers dietary counseling to help you reach your goal weight quickly.

Medications

While often used as a last resort, Dr. Carter prescribes medications that reduce your appetite, speed up your metabolism, or treat a health condition that affects weight loss, such as hypothyroidism or other hormone imbalances.

Don’t get discouraged if you haven’t had luck with dieting in the past, as medical weight loss drastically improves your chance of success. Schedule an appointment with Carter Cardiometabolic Health and Wellness Center by phone or online today.
