Weight Loss Services
Texas Health Medical Group, designed by a top weight loss doctor, are for people who are ready to lose weight, feel healthier and gain more control over their wellness journey without turning their lives upside down.
You’ve likely tried other weight loss products. Some of you may have tried strong weight loss prescription drugs, risking side effects. Others have tried extreme calorie restrictions or expensive meal plans. If you have ever wondered if there is an easier, safer weight loss program that you can incorporate into daily life- that works…the answer is YES.
At Dallas Weight Loss Clinic, we aren’t about pushing prescription drugs, invasive surgery, or complicated plans where you spend all your waking hours obsessing over food and calorie counting. Instead, this is a safe, well-researched, FDA-approved weight reduction therapy, unlike any other.
Medical Weight Loss
People use the terms “medical weight loss” and “surgical weight loss” as though they are the same. They are not. Surgical weight loss, especially if “bariatric” is mentioned, involves invasive procedures, usually gastric bypass or gastric sleeve procedures. This drastic measure involves anesthesia and poses many risks.
“Medical weight loss” is any non-surgical weight loss program supervised by a licensed physician. A doctor uses their extensive knowledge to support you in developing a plan that suits your unique medical history, lifestyle, and habits. This is known as medical weight loss. Our program fits into the latter category, but it is still very different from medical weight loss as you currently know it.
Doctor prescribed weight loss in some cases means prescription medication such as Phentermine or Adipex. These drugs are not for everyone. Other doctors favor strenuous exercise and severe restrictions on calories. While we all know this is a healthier option, it can be next to impossible to fit into a hectic daily routine. And, often you feel ashamed when you can’t. It’s a terrible spiral. Doctors recommend it, but they hardly know how to help you implement it.
Weight Loss Prescription Medications
This section discusses this doctor prescribed weight loss program, what the medication is and how it works, and general expectations that patients can have. I like the idea here that the program is FDA approved and had grown to the doctor’s experience with his patients. Also, the idea is that the program is customized for each patient. He mentioned the blend of proteins and B12 for controlling hunger, feeling full, and sustaining energy.
It’s no secret that weight loss medications were developed for use in cases of extreme obesity, and people with a specific health profile. There are risks related to blood pressure, increased heart rate, problems sleeping, and more. For decades, doctors have been balancing the potential risks posed by the medication, with the health risks that an overweight person faces. In some cases, extreme obesity is more dangerous than the drug, or there just isn’t another option, and they move ahead and write that prescription.
The doctors who developed the Dallas Weight Loss Clinic protocol understand the risks more than most. For two decades as medical weight loss practitioners, they prescribed these drugs to many patients who lacked any other option. But, many of their patients did not qualify for the drug, or worse, could not afford it. Then, some took the drug, only to regain the weight once they went off the medication.
Convinced there was a better way, these doctors spent years researching body chemistry, eating, enzymes, digestion, and energy regulation. They came to realize that naturally occurring proteins, known as peptides, were the answer they were looking for.
The Weight Loss Consultation
This section should describe the path from the call to the clinic, pre-screening on the phone to scheduling the appointment. The appointment includes investigating the patient’s medical history and determining the best weight loss plan for them. The goal is to check medical history, understand their weight loss goals, determine the best treatment plan for the patient, and get them started on that plan – on their first visit. This I can the FAW document where the doctor discusses the multi-vitamin to make sure the patient is receiving nutritional support at the right level.
Your first weight loss consultation at the clinic will be as simple as any other doctor visit. Some pre-screening takes place over the phone when you call for that first appointment. Although rare, if there is anything that prohibits your use of the therapy, it’s best to discover it early on.
Once you visit, the doctor and his team will use that first consultation to take a thorough medical history, discuss your past approaches to weight loss, and share any issues you may have experienced with programs you’ve tried.
Our team is highly trained, professional, and compassionate. There is no judgment, and all questions will be patiently and thoroughly answered. It is their privilege to educate and coach you to success. The licensed medical doctor on-site will look at your medical history, BMI and weight, and any other relevant data, and recommend the starting dose. This protocol starts slow, not because it isn’t safe, but because it’s been proven to be more successful if the body can adjust slowly to the changes.
