One of our core values at Owen Health Group in Lubbock, TX, is understanding that each patient is different. Body composition, metabolism, and wellness goals differ from patient to patient. That is why we implement a personalized weight loss program to ensure it will work for you.
What is included in our medical weight loss program?
- Physician Consultation and Diagnosis
Our medical weight loss program begins with a consultation and blood work. The consultation will help our physicians better understand your health to create a weight loss plan based on your medical history. Our doctors will help you improve your health through positive lifestyle changes, hormone therapy, and weight loss medicines and supplements.
- Hormone Replacement Therapy (HRT)
We understand that weight loss is not just about strict diets and exercise regimens. During your blood work, we will check that your hormone levels are balanced, which may prevent you from losing weight. Low levels of certain hormones can affect how quickly and easily you can store fat, burn fat, and build muscle.
Our medical professionals in Lubbock will administer hormone therapy. We make sure that your hormone levels are in check so you can maintain your amazing weight loss results. The great thing about the plan is that individuals will continue to receive HRT after they complete the weight loss program.
- FDA-Approved Medications
A well-balanced, low-calorie diet and regular exercise are the cornerstones of weight loss, but certain drugs can also provide powerful assistance. Our program also includes FDA-approved medications that are dispensed in our clinic.
Semaglutide and phentermine are appetite suppressants, limiting how many calories you eat. Over time, this will lead to weight loss.
Semaglutide is a game-changing, FDA-approved weight loss drug that works! It improves blood sugar control by increasing insulin production by the pancreas, reducing liver sugar production, and delaying stomach emptying. Patients taking semaglutide have lost an average of 35 pounds, or 15% of their body weight.
Phentermine is another FDA-approved weight loss drug that decreases your appetite by increasing neurotransmitter levels in your brain. Taking phentermine generally leads to a weight loss of 3% after three months and 5–7% after six months.
- Weight Loss Tools
We also implement a body composition scan. This gives a detailed analysis of your body composition, such as fat and muscle percentage.
By measuring body composition, we can create an individualized weight loss program to best fit your goals and personal needs by measuring body composition. Besides improving your health and self-esteem, it can also reduce your chances of contracting deadly diseases and cancer. You will also feel more energetic once the muscle-to-fat ratio is balanced.
- Nutrition and Fitness Coaching (supplements)
Diet and exercise play a significant role in weight loss. However, are you doing it correctly?
Our medical weight loss program includes nutritionists and fitness coaches coaching to aid you in weight loss. The nutrition plan we create for you will be easy to follow. We will teach you what foods you can eat to help in weight loss. A successful lifestyle change will ensure you will not cheat on your diet and let you eat that dessert!
Supplements and nutraceuticals can support the body’s optimal function and combat oxidative stress; both contribute to weight gain as you age.
Our medical weight loss program can help you lose weight safely and effectively. Our weight loss program aims to help our patients regain their health, improve their quality of life, and live longer and healthier lives.
