Medical Weight Loss & BHRT Q & A

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is weight reduction supervised by skilled medical professionals and backed by science. It has many benefits, including:

Preventing disease

Carrying extra weight can increase your risk for heart disease, obstructive sleep apnea, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and even cancer. Losing it can protect you and can help reduce the medications necessary to maintain your well-being.

Addressing nutrient depletion

Nutrition is more complex than many people realize, and pursuing medical weight loss with a skilled provider can give you valuable health tools. They can conduct tests to see if you are lacking any vital nutrients that might be causing a slow metabolism, low energy, or weight gain.

There are numerous reasons to maintain a healthy weight, and your experienced lifestyle coach tailors your plan to your needs.

What is bioidentical hormone replacement therapy (BHRT)?

BHRT utilizes hormones identical to those your body produces naturally. Imber Medical may recommend this treatment if testing reveals you have a hormone imbalance, although you may already suspect something is out of balance due to symptoms like:

  • Dry skin
  • Hair loss
  • Vaginal dryness or erectile dysfunction
  • Brain fog
  • Loss of muscle mass
  • Headaches
  • Gradually increasing weight

Changes in your production of hormones occur naturally as you get older, but that doesn’t mean they have to be accepted as an inevitability. BHRT is available to improve your well-being with results like:

  • Improved mood
  • Protections against diabetes and insulin resistance
  • Lower cholesterol
  • Reduced abdominal fat

Your BHRT treatment plan will depend on your age, symptoms, and lab results.

How can BHRT help with medical weight loss?

BHRT can reinforce your weight loss efforts by ensuring that your body’s internal systems are functioning as they should. Optimal hormone levels can reduce how much fat your body stores around your abdomen, give you better strength and stamina, and increase your lean muscle mass.

Because it also increases your energy and motivation, BHRT can help you return to an active lifestyle and take a two-pronged approach to weight loss: a nutrient-rich diet and an enjoyable exercise regimen.

The skilled team at Imber Medical has solutions to return you to the pursuits and social activities you love with more physical and emotional balance and a renewed zest for life. To learn more about medical weight loss and BHRT, call the office or click the online scheduler today.
