Benefits of Medical Weight Management
Medical weight management gives you a variety of tools and support so that you can safely and effectively lose the weight that threatens your health and quality of life.
Medical Control of Sugar
Controlling blood sugar is vital to your health, even if you are not diabetic. With the support of Dr. Manocchio and our staff, you will safely lose weight while maintaining a healthy and appropriate blood sugar level.
Hormones regulate all the functions of your body, including your ability to lose weight. When your hormones are out of balance, you will experience a range of physical and emotional symptoms that may diminish your ability to eat properly and exercise. Dr. Manocchio will recommend a bio-identical hormone replacement therapy to maximize the results of your medical weight loss program.
Nutritional and Activity Protocols
Nutrition and staying active are important to your health. Losing weight is dependent on your commitment to eat properly and exercise. Dr. Manocchio will develop nutritional and activity protocols that strengthen your muscles, eliminate excess fat and improve your overall health and well-being.
How is Medical Weight Management Performed?
From your first visit we will give you a walk-in diagnosis by measuring:
- Fat percentage
- H20 percentage
- Body composition
- Blood testing
This will help us determine the best solution for your individual needs.
