Weight Loss Q & A

Why is weight loss important?

Obesity is a serious health issue, and if you don’t address it, your immune system is compromised and puts you at a greater risk of developing a wide range of chronic health conditions. 

Some chronic illnesses brought on by obesity are:

  • Heart disease
  • Kidney disease
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Stroke
  • Arthritis
  • Cancer

As you get older, your metabolism starts to slow down, which means you burn through calories at a slower rate. This, coupled with lost muscle mass, makes it harder to exercise and burn calories to lose weight. 

Other factors like not getting enough exercise, eating processed foods, and not getting enough sleep can all contribute to excessive weight gain.

Is medical weight loss for everyone?

The guided weight loss programs at Lady’s Care Center are for everyone trying to lose weight or maintain their current weight. 

During your appointment, Dr. Espinal performs a physical exam using a body mass index (BMI) to see if you’re overweight or obese. The BMI is a measure of your height in proportion to your weight.

If your BMI reading is between 25 and 30, you’re considered medically overweight. A BMI reading over 30 means you’re considered medically obese. 

In either case, Dr. Espinal helps you get your weight under control with her weight loss program so you can live a long and healthy life without developing common health complications that come from being overweight.

How do you manage weight loss?

During your physical, Dr. Espinal asks you questions about your lifestyle and weight loss goals, which she takes into account when developing your treatment plan. Based on your personal goals and lifestyle preferences, Dr. Espinal can recommend:

hCG weight loss 

hCG is a hormone your body makes during pregnancy. The hCG diet uses injectable hCG to reduce your hunger along with a low-calorie diet to achieve dramatic weight loss results.

Oral medication

Dr. Espinal may prescribe weight loss medication to suppress your appetite and increase your metabolism.

Injectable medication

Dr. Espinal uses a combination of fat-burning B-12 and amino acid injections to give you more energy in order to burn more calories and weight.

Keto nutraceuticals

Keto nutraceuticals are fortified supplements designed to force your body to use fat, rather than glucose, for energy, while providing the right amount of nutrients to keep you healthy.

Food allergy testing

Food allergies cause an imbalance in the bacterial ecosystem of the intestines, which can result in weight gain. Dr. Espinal provides food allergy testing to understand which foods don’t agree with you, so you can cut them out of your diet.

IV therapy

Dr. Espinal offers the Skinny Chick IV solution that suppresses your appetite and increases your metabolism and energy at the same time to speed up your weight loss.

Hormone replacement therapy

If a hormonal imbalance is causing your weight gain or inhibiting your weight loss, Dr. Espinal offers testing and hormone replacement therapy to address your imbalance and restore the optimal quality of life.
