Medical Weight Loss Q & A

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss includes nonsurgical services to support healthy, safe weight loss under the guidance of an experienced medical professional.

Wellspring Clinic provides customized medical weight loss plans for adults and children. Dr. Arene takes into account the many factors that influence your weight and creates a program you follow to successfully achieve a healthy body weight.

With Dr. Arene’s ongoing support, you can reach your weight loss goals and learn strategies to improve your long-term wellness. 

When should I consider medical weight loss?

You can benefit from the medical weight loss services at Wellspring Clinic if you are overweight or obese but have difficulty losing weight through diet and exercise.

Medically supervised weight loss is also ideal for people who are at increased risk for obesity-related health complications like:

  • Stroke
  • Chronic pain
  • Heart disease
  • Heart attack
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)

Dr. Arene can also help those with metabolic disorders or other chronic health conditions that interfere with weight loss efforts.

What can I expect from medical weight loss?

At your initial medical weight loss consultation at Wellspring Clinic, Dr. Arene reviews your current health and your personal and family medical histories. She also completes a physical exam and may order bloodwork or other lab tests to assess your hormone levels and overall health.

Dr. Arene works closely with you to identify and establish your weight loss goals. She designs a weight loss program specific to your health needs and challenges. Your program may include:

  • Daily exercise
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Portion control
  • Proper hydration
  • Dietary supplements

You may also be a candidate for prescription medications that help control cravings and make you feel fuller for longer. Dr. Arene supervises your use of medications to ensure they are working well and not conflicting with other medications you take.

At routine follow-up visits, Dr. Arene checks your weight and can recommend ways to stay accountable for your weight loss results. As you reach each milestone, she can help you set new goals and suggest lifestyle changes you can make to keep the weight off for good.
