Weight loss has been a hot topic for decades as the health impacts of being overweight become better recognized. However, it may seem like a double-edged sword. While being overweight may cause or contribute to chronic disease — heart disease, diabetes, hypertension, hypothyroidism, chronic pain, etc — those chronic conditions can also be a contributing factor to weight gain! 

Weight gain can be attributed to much more than a poor diet, including:heavy-set black women smiling in front of a plate of healthy food options

  • Stress
  • Lack of sleep
  • Over exhaustion — eating to compensate for energy
  • Age
  • Hormone changes
  • Lack of physical activity
  • Pain — acute or chronic
  • Emotional health

And, conversely, weight can cause:

  • Increased stress on the body
  • Poor sleep
  • Fatigue
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Decreased energy and motivation
  • Joint pain
  • Mobility limitations
  • Decreased self-confidence and depression

Weight gain seems to be a giant, never-ending cycle and circle. At Taylor Internal Medicine, we understand the reciprocal relationship between weight and chronic disease management. 

Choosing to lose weight can be a daunting task. Whether it’s something your physician has recommended or something you’d like to do for your own benefit, it’s hard to know where to start. At Taylor Internal Medicine, we offer a physician-assisted weight loss program to make the process as easy as possible. With a combination of lifestyle modifications and vitamin supplementation, we work directly with you to create a plan that is sustainable and will help you to lose weight. Regardless of your age, we can create a weight loss program that will work for your needs. Our weight loss consultant will meet with you to go over your specific goals and to explain the program to you.

Weight Loss Products We Use

In combination with managing your chronic pain and contributing conditions, we use a variety of weight-loss supplements to help aid in the process. Getting your hormone balance in check, your blood sugars on track, and managing your other chronic disease will be the first move toward weight loss support. Next, we will discuss your current diet, physical activity, and weight loss goals to create a plan specific to you. In addition to these efforts, we can implement the use of:

  • All-natural lipotropic injections
  • B vitamins
  • Adipex
  • Lipo BC capsules
  • Healthy Kids One-A-Day Program packets

Each weight loss product has its own benefits and will aid you in your weight loss efforts. Using physician-prescribed supplements during your weight loss journey can be a safe and effective way to ensure you’re getting the nutrients you need. In addition to supplements, we’ll help you create a nutrition and exercise plan that is right for you.
