Medical Weight Loss

Many programs say they utilize medical weight loss by simply having a physician sell you food or talk to you about diet and exercise.  While we will certainly discuss diet and exercise at Premier Weight and Wellness, we feel true medical weight loss comes through the use of the most current medications to help you increase your metabolism and energy while reducing your appetite.  We have developed a program which combines the use of such medications as Phentermine, Belviq, Orlistat and B-12 along with various vitamins, a sensible diet which won’t leave you starving and a moderate exercise program.  Combined we feel this will maximize your weight loss as effectively as we can.  If you are ready to lose weight then your first step is to call us at (859) 523-8996.

Obesity is often oversimplified as a disorder of eating too much and exercising too little. We know quite well that it is much more complicated than that. There are dozens of factors beyond simple diet and exercise that predispose, cause and contribute to weight gain.

A stunning 73 percent of Americans are considered overweight or obese. Being overweight is a medical issue that can increase your chance of suffering from:

  • Coronary heart disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Cancer (endometrial, breast, and colon)
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Stroke
  • Liver and gallbladder disease
  • Sleep apnea and respiratory problems
  • Osteoarthritis (a degeneration of cartilage and its underlying bone within a joint)
  • Gynecological problems such as infertility

With the rising rate of obesity and the medical issues that result from being overweight, we are seeing an increase in the number of physicians playing a role in treating this disease. Physicians have been successful in helping patients with lifestyle changes, such as smoking cessation and blood pressure control, and this success is mirrored by physicians helping their patients with weight loss and weight maintenance. There are several reasons why people who need to lose weight should seek medical and professional assistance.
