Weight Management Q & A

What is medically supervised weight management?

Weight management at Peninsula Healthcare Center includes medically supervised weight loss that helps you safely and effectively move toward your goal weight. Your provider uses meal plans, exercise programs, dietary supplements, medications, or hormone therapy to make weight loss easier.

What are the benefits of healthy weight management?

Some of the main benefits you can experience when choosing medically supervised weight management at Peninsula Healthcare Center include:

  • Easier, safe, effective weight loss
  • More energy
  • Improved chronic disease management
  • Reduced risk of chronic diseases
  • Medical supervision
  • Highly effective results
  • Better overall quality of life
  • Easier sleep
  • More self-confidence
  • Leaner body composition
  • Less body fat
  • Smaller waist circumference 

Healthy weight management reduces your risk of high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes, heart disease, and other chronic conditions. 

Which weight management plan is best for me?

Your Peninsula Healthcare Center provider weighs you, evaluates your body mass index (BMI), and checks your pulse, blood pressure, and other vital signs to find out which type of weight-management program is best for you.

They listen to your heartbeat and breathing during a physical exam and often order blood tests to detect or rule out high cholesterol, high blood sugar, hormone imbalance, or other conditions that hinder weight loss or increase your risk of medical problems.

Your weight-loss provider also reviews your medical history, family history of disease, symptoms, medications, and your lifestyle habits — including your usual diet, exercise, and sleep patterns.

What happens during medically supervised weight management?

During medically supervised weight management with the Peninsula Healthcare Center team, you follow a custom diet and exercise program. You might take dietary supplements, weight-loss medications, or medicines that help you better manage a chronic disease.

Your Peninsula Healthcare Center provider makes changes to your weight-management plan when needed to ensure the best health outcomes. They follow up with you periodically and, once you reach your goal weight, help you adopt strategies to maintain an ideal weight long term. Call the office any time you have concerns or questions about your plan.
