Tools we might use
At Physicians for Weight Loss, we are knowledgeable about many different treatments for overweight, obesity, and related metabolic abnormalities. Some examples of the tools that we might recommend as part of your treatment are appetite suppressants, Lipo-B injections, B-12 injections, and medically prescribed meal replacements in addition to other forms of dietary treatment.
Appetite Suppressants: Some people require additional help for those difficult cravings. We use FDA approved medications proven effective in the treatment of obesity. We adhere to the ASBP prescribing guidelines for anorectic medications. When prescribing these medications, we consider your complete medical history and physical exam ensuring your safety.
Lipo-B injections: This special lipotropic (fat burning) formulation of vitamins and amino acids prescribed by our physicians can help your body lose that unhealthy fat. Lipo-B contains vitamin B-12 as well as other B-complex vitamins that help maintain energy levels during treatment. Amino acids (building blocks of protein) like methionine, in addition to other chemicals like choline and inositol help to enhance the breakdown of fat molecules as well as slow down the storage of fat in the liver. Many of our patients find these weekly injections to be a very valuable adjunct to their treatment.
B-12 injections: This vitamin (Cobalamin) is necessary for proper functioning of the brain and nervous system in addition to the production of important blood cells. This is a very safe medication and is provided in multiple doses depending on the patient’s symptoms and goals. In some patients we might recommend combining the Lipo-B with the B-12 to achieve better maintenance of energy levels during weight loss.
Medically prescribed meal replacements: These popular and tasty shakes, bars and soups are available by prescription only. They are nutritionally balanced to help you get the nutrients you need while we work with you to change your lifestyle and eating habits. These supplements are used in a variety of ways, as either a healthy snack alternative or replacing one or all of your meals. Our patients are very successful when using these meal replacements under the close supervision of our physicians.
