Medical Weight Loss Q&A

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is a program that includes professional medical guidance to help you lose those unwanted pounds. Despite what many commercial programs claim, weight loss isn’t as easy as eating less and moving more. 

Many factors affect your ability to get to your goal weight, including:

  • Sex
  • Age
  • Genetics
  • Medical history
  • Medications
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Sleep habits
  • Lifestyle
  • Exercise routine

Dr. Turner understands the struggles people face when they try and fail to lose weight following a traditional weight-loss program. He understands that weight loss is more than just about cutting calories. 

Taking a holistic approach to health, Dr. Turner focuses on your whole health, including your physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being. With medical weight loss, he customizes your plan, addressing all the factors that influence your weight and health.

Anyone struggling to reach their goal weight following a traditional weight-loss plan benefits from medical weight loss at Endurance Clinic. Dr. Turner also recommends medical weight loss to those who lose weight but have a hard time keeping it off.

You may also benefit from medical weight loss if you have an underlying medical condition that would benefit from losing weight, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or hypertension.

Dr. Turner is a family medicine physician who specializes in men’s health. He may recommend medical weight loss for patients struggling with erectile dysfunction (ED) or low testosterone.

What can I expect from medical weight loss?

He asks about your usual diet, weight history, medical history, and family history. He also reviews your daily routine and the types of physical activity you engage in.

Based on the information he gathers from you, Dr. Turner creates your personalized medical weight-loss plan, which might include:
