Your weight has a significant influence on your overall health and long-term wellness. Being overweight or obese can increase your risk of persistent pain and chronic health issues like heart disease, arthritis, and Type 2 diabetes.
As you get older, you may find weight loss difficult to achieve on your own. You may also struggle to achieve your weight loss goals if you have an existing health issue that limits what you can do physically.
Copperfield Family Clinic offers medically supervised weight loss programs for adults ready to take back control of their health.
The weight loss services available at Copperfield Family Clinic focus on helping you achieve safe and effective weight loss. After a physical exam and lab work, Dr. Regina Ottan-Obi can determine strategies suitable for your health and wellness goals. She tailors a plan that may include:
Low-calorie, low-fat meal plans ensure you get sufficient nutrition to stay healthy and achieve your weight loss goals.
Getting at least 30 minutes of aerobic exercise every day helps you lose weight, build muscle strength, and prevent additional weight gain.
Injections of lipotropic substances like vitamin B12 and phentermine support fat reduction by boosting your metabolism.
Semaglutide products like Ozempic® and Wegovy® enhance your weight loss success by stimulating your pancreas to make more insulin when your blood sugar levels are high.
These products prevent your body from releasing too much sugar to slow your digestive process. They also stop food from leaving your stomach too fast, so you feel fuller for longer.
Your results from a medically supervised weight loss program at Copperfield Family Clinic depend on many factors, including your original weight, health, and willingness to follow your customized weight loss plan.
Typically, following the weight loss strategies, you can expect to lose 1-5 pounds a week. Dr. Regina Ottan-Obi assesses your progress during routine weight checks at follow-up office visits. You can also meet with her through the online telehealth platform to stay accountable to your program.
As you reach each weight loss milestone, Dr. Regina Ottan-Obi helps you set new goals and provides the tools to maintain a healthy weight for the rest of your life.
