Weight Loss Q & A

How is weight loss a medical issue?

If you’re overweight or obese, you’re at greater risk of developing health conditions, such as diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension. Dr. Saad is a primary care physician who focuses on preventive medical care.

By offering a physician-supervised weight-loss plan, he may be able to prevent you from developing long-term health complications. If, however, you already have health issues, by providing you with the support you need, he may be able to help you lose enough weight to improve these health conditions, your symptoms, and any other related medical issues.

What can I expect from a weight-loss program?

Dr. Saad offers a comprehensive weight-loss program designed specifically for you. To determine the best weight-loss plan to help you meet your needs, Dr. Saad conducts a physical exam, reviews your medical and weight history, and has lab work done at his in-office lab.

Based on the information gathered during your evaluation, Dr. Saad develops a diet and exercise plan to help you reach your weight-loss goals based on your underlying health issues. He also provides behavioral therapy to help you change unhealthy habits that may impede your weight-loss efforts.

While you’re following Dr. Saad’s weight-loss program, he closely monitors your progress, adjusts your plan as needed, and provides you with the support and encouragement you need to reach your goals.

Can medications help me lose weight?

Dr. Saad understands how difficult weight loss can be for many of his patients and offers adipex, which is a weight-loss medication that helps suppress your appetite, making it easier for you to eat less. This medication may be recommended if you’re overweight or obese, have weight-related medical issues, such as diabetes or hypertension, and have tried and failed to lose weight following different weight-loss programs in the past.

Adipex can’t help you lose weight on its own but works best when combined with the diet and exercise plan created for you by Dr. Saad. Like your weight loss plan, Dr. Saad closely monitors you while you’re on the medication and makes adjustments as needed

Weight loss without proper support is difficult. Dr. Saad wants nothing more than for you to live a healthy, long life, and he can help you lose the weight for good. Call the office today, or book an appointment online.
