Heart disease is the leading cause of death for both men and women in America, causing more than 600,000 deaths per year. One of the biggest culprits for heart disease? Being overweight.
However, becoming healthier doesn’t mean you should just lose weight as quickly as possible. It takes much more than a fad diet or exercise routine to shed — and keep off — those extra pounds. In fact, there’s a real danger to losing too much too fast, including:
- Muscle loss
- Gallstone formation
- Nutritional deficiency
- Metabolism disruption
So if you want to lose weight safely, it’s best to get help. But while dieticians, nutritionists, health coaches, and weight loss experts can be critical to success, any certified or accredited professional will still recommend a medical evaluation before starting a weight loss program.
The team at Low Testosterone & Weight Loss Center here in Texas can help you stay on the road to success when it comes to your weight loss. Best of all, you can trust that our providers’ guidance is backed by years of academic and real world experience.
Why do I need medical supervision to lose weight?
Many diets and routines are marketed to the general public, but may not be suited for your individual body type and personal health history. Consulting a medical professional before you start a weight loss program is vital to helping you safely ease into a healthier lifestyle.
A licensed medical provider will also perform certain tests or treatments that other weight loss professionals might not, including:
- Treating other ailments that prevent physical activity
- Identifying hormone imbalances
- Identifying dietary needs or limitations
- Reviewing medical and family history
- Testing for conditions that might impact weight loss goals
- Reviewing existing medical conditions
- Reviewing existing medication
Beginning with a thorough assessment is exactly what we do at Low Testosterone & Weight Loss Center. Above all else, the assessment provides the necessary information to help us create a weight loss program specifically for you. Not only that, but if you fall short of meeting your goals with diet and exercise, we can also provide prescription medication or MIC (fat-burning) injections to help.
