Weight Loss Q & A

How does aging affect weight loss?

Your weight is affected by many factors, including your overall mood, stress, nutrition, food sensitivities, environmental toxins, and hormone levels. Aging affects your energy, your sleep, and your lifestyle. 

These factors can have a significant impact on your diet and level of activity, therefore contributing to difficulty losing weight. 

Declining hormone levels occur in both men and women as they age, and this also has an impact on your weight. Your hormones affect your metabolism, how much fat is stored in the body, and your overall health and well-being. 

How can a doctor help me lose weight?

The experts at BioviveMD use an integrative method to design customized weight-loss programs. This integrative approach means they assess your overall health to determine which factors are preventing you from losing weight. 

By correcting deficiencies in your diet, addressing food sensitivities, eliminating toxins, and helping you make lifestyle choices that will allow you to maintain a stable weight, your doctor can help you to lose extra pounds and to sustain robust health and vitality as you age.

What is involved in a medical weight-loss program?

To design your personal weight-loss treatment plan, your skilled provider at BioviveMD performs a comprehensive physical exam and carefully reviews your health history. 

They also order lab work to determine if you have a vitamin deficiency, food allergies or sensitivities, hormonal imbalance, or another condition that may be contributing to your weight gain. 

Once your doctor has completed this process, they design a treatment plan tailored to meet your individual needs. Your plan may include:

  • Weight check-ins
  • Detoxification programs
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Exercise plans
  • Bioidentical hormone replacement therapy

In some cases, an exercise specialist or another treatment option is needed to achieve optimal weight-loss results. Your success is the main priority, so if these services aren’t available at BioviveMD, your provider refers you to a qualified professional who does offer those options. 

Your doctor then follows up with your specialist on an ongoing basis to integrate their services into your supervised weight-loss plan.

If you’re ready to end frustration and experience weight-loss success for long-lasting results, call the BioviveMD location nearest you to schedule a medical weight-loss consultation, or make an appointment online today.
