Weight Loss Q & A

What is medically supervised weight loss?

Medically supervised weight loss uses a combination of nutrition plans, exercise guidance, and prescription medication to help you shed excess pounds and keep them off. If you want to lose weight but struggle to maintain lasting results, KAMcare Health and Wellness can help.

Can medically supervised weight loss reduce my risk of other issues?

Yes. People who are overweight are also more likely to experience acute and chronic medical issues, including:

  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • High cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Certain types of cancer
  • Arthritis
  • Respiratory issues

Excess weight may even affect your mental health. Some research suggests a link between weight issues and anxiety and depression.

What does medically supervised weight loss involve?

At KAMcare Health and Wellness, medically supervised weight loss combines several treatments, including:

Weight loss shots

Weight loss shots are injections that your KAMcare Health and Wellness provider administers during an in-office visit. The shots contain vitamin B12, a supplement that speeds up your metabolism, helping you to burn fat faster. 

Nutrition plans

If you want to maintain a healthy weight, it’s crucial to eat a balanced diet. After enrolling in medically supervised weight loss, your KAMcare Health and Wellness provider designs a custom nutrition plan that includes ingredient lists, recipes, and meal and snack recommendations. 

Exercise guidance

When it comes to weight loss, diet and exercise go hand-in-hand. Your KAMcare Health and Wellness provider can recommend physical activities that align with your current capabilities. That might include walking, cycling, or something lower impact, like water aerobics.

Prescription medication

Everyone’s metabolism works differently. If diet, exercise, and weight loss shots don’t help you achieve lasting results, your provider might prescribe weight loss medication. Some drugs suppress your appetite, while others help you burn calories more quickly.

How long does it take for medically supervised weight loss to work?

The time that medically supervised weight loss takes depends on several factors, including your metabolism and commitment to your provider’s treatment plan. Some people lose several pounds in the first few weeks, but it typically takes several months to experience lasting results.*
