Medical Weight Loss Management Q&A

What is medical weight loss management?

Medical weight loss management is one of the wellness services available at The Lamkin Clinic. When it comes to weight management and weight loss, there’s no one-size-fits-all approach.

At The Lamkin Clinic, the wellness experts customize your medical weight loss management plan to match your unique health needs. They take multiple factors into consideration when designing your plan, including:

  • Age
  • Lifestyle
  • Sleep patterns
  • Exercise habits
  • Hormones
  • Genetic predisposition
  • Cravings
  • Timeline preferences
  • Overall goals

They aim to find the root cause of your weight issues so they can design the most effective medical weight loss management plan.

Am I a candidate for medical weight loss management?

If you’re ready to take back your health, then you’re a good candidate for medical weight loss management at The Lamkin Clinic. The functional medicine and anti-aging clinic has been helping people restore their health for more than a decade. 

Excess body fat and loss of lean muscle mass is a common age-related issue. These weight issues are the result of a combination of factors that not only include your diet and lifestyle, but also your:

  • Low or suboptimal thyroid function
  • Slowing metabolism
  • Decline in sex hormone levels
  • Changes in the stress response
  • Poor, non-restful sleep
  • Problems with insulin and leptin signaling 

All of these factors have a major effect on your metabolic rate and how your body uses energy, including the stored energy in your fat and muscles. Eating less and moving more is an ineffective strategy for long-term weight loss. 

Addressing the root causes of your sluggish metabolism is the key to long-term success with weight and health.

What can I expect from medical weight loss management?

You can expect attentive and personalized care from medical weight loss management at The Lamkin Clinic. Before making any specific recommendations, the health specialists conduct a comprehensive evaluation.

In addition to asking detailed questions about your diet, lifestyle, and medical history, your provider performs a number of diagnostic tests to get a complete picture of your health. Testing might include specialized labs to check hormones and nutrition, as well as body composition testing.

Once your provider has all of your health data, they create a medical weight loss management plan that helps you reach your goals. They provide a customized diet and exercise program, medical and nutrition guidance, and ongoing coaching and support.
