Are You a Candidate for Medical Weight Loss Therapy?


Tennessee has the second highest incidence of obesity in the US. Two-thirds of Tennessee adults are overweight or obese. If you struggle with your weight, you are not alone and even if you feel that nothing works, there are solutions available. The medical staff at Premier Age Management aims to help patients control obesity and return to a healthy lifestyle. They can help determine if you are an ideal candidate for medical weight loss techniques.

A variety of medical strategies, from B12 injections to the use of phentermine or HCG ( Human Chorionic Gonadotropin), has been found to be successful in weight loss management.

Is medical weight loss for you?

Medical weight loss therapy is geared toward those who are considered ‘obese.’ Whether or not one is obese is determined by one’s Body Mass Index (BMI), a calculation of weight in relation to height. A BMI score of over 30 indicates that you are obese. If your BMI is 30 or higher, you could be a candidate for medical weight loss therapy.

Also, if you have found that you do not lose weight with diet and exercise or if you always feel hungry no matter how much you eat, then medical weight loss techniques could be the answer for you.

Medical weight loss, while effective, is not for everyone. It is not for those who can lose weight through diet and exercise alone or if you are looking to lose just a few pounds.

Medical weight loss is most effective when partnered with lifestyle choices, like following a nutrition plan and incorporating exercise into your weekly schedule.
