Obesity related conditions include heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and certain types of cancer – some of the leading causes of preventable death. More than 1/3 (36.5%) of adults have obesity. (cdc.gov) Weight related health problems can be remedied when the body returns to a healthy BMI, which for most people is 18.5 – 24.9.
When a patient seeks assistance with weight loss and management, AHC measures BMI then discusses treatment options. We work with patients on diet and exercise programs while addressing any pain they may be experiencing.
All of our weight loss programs include an initial exam, diet plan, exercise plan, counseling, and weekly weigh-ins. A summary of our weight loss programs include:
- Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (HCG) – rids the body of stored fat while increasing metabolism.
- Phentermine – an FDA approved appetite suppressant designed to boost energy and curb appetite.
- Supplement with Vitamin B12 – proven to be successful in weight loss when combined with a diet and exercise plan.
