What happens during a medical weight loss consultation?

He will assess your health, complete some lab testing, learn about your medical history, and conduct a body composition analysis that determines your BMI and body fat. Once you begin medical weight loss treatment, you will be asked to attend a weekly checkup at our Las Vegas, NV office. During these visits, we can give any necessary injections, such as triamine, BCAA, carnitine, MIC, or B12, for optimal health.
Obesity management includes:
Behavior modifications: This includes suggestions for diet and exercise that reduce caloric intake and get patients moving, which influences caloric deficit.
Pre-packaged meal replacement plans: They help patients transition to these self-prepared meals that are nutritious, including Medi-fast, OPTIFAST®, and Advanced Health System.
Weight-loss medication: hCg medication paired with a low-calorie diet can reset your metabolism without causing feelings of hunger. Dr. Singh may also prescribe other medications based on your needs.
