Weight Loss Q & A

What can weight loss do for my health?

Weight loss is critical for people carrying excess pounds because it’s a contributing factor to multiple serious diseases, including:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Coronary artery disease (CAD)
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Depression and anxiety
  • High cholesterol
  • Carotid artery disease
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Some cancers
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)
  • Leg ulcers

Apart from being uncomfortable and affecting your quality of life, excess body weight can also be fatal if severe. You could suffer a stroke, heart attack, organ failure, or other life-threatening complications caused by excess body weight. Losing weight improves overall health and significantly reduces your chance of early death.

What weight-loss method should I use?

There’s no shortage of diet and weight-loss advice, programs, and products available, so it can be hard to decide which one to choose. Firstly, don’t fall for anything that sounds too good to be true — if you could lose weight as easily as some commercials claim, there wouldn’t be such an obesity crisis.

Secondly, check out the credentials of anyone offering weight-loss advice. For instance, someone might be an expert in the best ways to burn fat through exercise but know little or nothing about diagnosing and treating conditions like hypothyroidism that affect your ability to lose weight.

The Nova Wellness Health team knows which strategies effectively help people lose excess pounds and maintain a healthy weight in the future. They complete a thorough medical history review, physical exam, and lab tests, as well as analyze your body type and help you define your goals. Then they design a personalized weight-loss plan for you.

What might be in my weight-loss program?

Your weight-loss program begins with treating any disorders that could affect your ability to lose weight, from a hormone imbalance that slows your metabolism to osteoarthritis that limits your ability to exercise.

Your plan also contains dietary advice to ensure you eat well and maintain your nutrient levels, and an exercise plan. To support your efforts, the Nova Wellness Health team uses semaglutide injections. These reduce your appetite, so you eat less without feeling hungry. Semaglutide is a proven way of helping patients with diabetes lose weight.

You could also benefit from intravenous (IV) therapy, particularly the weight-loss mix.
