What is medical weight loss?
Medical weight loss is weight management based on medical scientific evidence that targets the root causes of obesity and weight gain. Our clinic medical providers provide the treatment and guidance necessary to help you achieve weight loss and maintain it for life
Obesity is a growing problem in the United States. We meet with many patients who have struggled with some of the most popular diets, only to gain the weight they lose back. Babcocok Health and Wellness Clinic in San Antonio, Texas offers these patients medically supervised weight loss that is safe and effective.
We understand that you do not want to be stuck in the cycle of losing weight and then gaining it back. After you succeed at losing weight, we continue to support you with our weight maintenance programs.
What are our medical weight loss programs?
Our Medical weight loss programs are designed to help any individual with his or her specific weight loss goals, whether to lose 50 pounds or those last stubborn ten pounds. It is especially beneficial for those who have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher because it can reduce the risk of other serious medical conditions such as.
- Type 2 diabetes
- Heart disease and stroke
- Some cancers
- High cholesterol
- Breathing problems, such as sleep apnea and asthma
- Metabolic syndrome
- Gallbladder disease and gallstones
While you are on these programs, you undergo a medical assessment and tests to ensure that your weight is not affected by an underlying medical condition. We also provide our medical weight loss patients with body composition analyses, baseline body measurements, consultations, instructions for a restricted diet and weekly weigh-ins.
For your convenience, our office is open 6 days a week. While we encourage you to make an appointment, walk-ins are also welcome. To schedule your appointment, please call (210) 544-5715 or click here to request an appointment online.
