Why is weight management important?
Not only does carrying excess weight affect your self-confidence, but it also has a severe impact on your overall health.
Dr. Khalil uses body mass index (BMI) to measure your weight. When your BMI is 25 or higher, you’re considered overweight. A BMI of 30 or higher is deemed to be obese; nearly 40% of American adults are considered obese.
Having a high BMI significantly increases your risk of several severe health conditions — several, e.g., heart disease and stroke, of which are the leading causes of death in the United States. Additional obesity-related health conditions include:
- Type 2 diabetes
- High cholesterol
- High blood pressure
- Obstructive sleep apnea
Being overweight also increases your risk of certain cancers — including breast cancer — and can lead to high-risk pregnancies.
What is medical weight loss?
Successful long-term weight loss can be painful, especially if you’re significantly overweight. Dr. Khalil understands these challenges and works with you to develop a personalized weight management program, based on medical science, in a warm and supportive environment.
During your appointment, Dr. Khalil performs a physical examination that includes a detailed discussion of your personal and family medical history. Using this information, Dr. Khalil creates programs that target the primary causes of weight gain and obesity to achieve a sustainable weight and healthy lifestyle.
Dr. Khalil’s medical weight-loss programs don’t include diet pills, short-term gimmicks, surgery, or crash diets. They’re designed to help you lose weight safely through comprehensive weight management strategies like nutrition, fitness, and lifestyle counseling. This approach not only helps you lose weight, but it also enables you to develop healthy habits to maintain your ideal weight in the future.
Based on your unique needs, Dr. Khalil might also recommend human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG). This naturally occurring hormone can help boost your metabolism and promote weight loss.
What are the benefits of medically supervised weight loss?
In addition to proven success, medically supervised weight loss offers several benefits, including:
- A customized approach to your weight-loss plan
- Supervision of obesity-related health conditions like high cholesterol
- A supportive environment where your weight-loss success is celebrated
- Medication management to modify prescriptions that may affect your weight
- Personalized lifestyle and exercise recommendations
- Health evaluations like genetic or hormone testing to identify the cause of your weight gain
