Weight Loss

Primary Care located in Ellicott City, MD

What is weight loss?

Weight loss is a customized program that helps you lose weight under the guidance of an experienced health care provider. At NugaHealth Primary Care, the weight loss program helps people who struggle with extra weight find more effective strategies to get the best results. 

Many health issues can significantly reduce your quality of life or even shorten your life. However, with a comprehensive weight loss plan, you can prevent the onset of medical problems or delay their progression if you already have a chronic condition. 

What does a weight loss plan involve?

Omobolanle creates a personalized weight loss plan for you. She’ll work closely with you to determine your goals and help you find the right path to reach them.

You’ll come in for regular appointments anywhere from once a week to once a month based on your individual plan. Throughout your treatment process, Omobolanle keeps you motivated and encourages you to follow through on your weight loss goals. 

Weight loss doesn’t end once you reach your goal weight. Maintaining weight loss can be just as challenging as losing weight, so Omobolanle gives you ongoing support and education to help you keep the weight off for good. 

Which weight loss treatments are available?

NugaHealth Primary Care offers weight loss plans that address your diet, lifestyle habits, and mental well-being. 

After reviewing your medical history, conducting a physical exam, and evaluating your weight loss goals, Omobolanle may include the following in your care plan:

  • Nutrition counseling
  • Meal replacement
  • Prescription medications 
  • Supplements
  • Exercise counseling
  • Mental health support

Meal replacement focuses on helping you lose weight through food alternatives. Omobolanle might recommend shakes, protein bars, or other types of substitutes that may help with weight management. 

Some patients take medication as part of their weight loss program. Prescription weight loss medications can reduce your appetite, increase satiety (feelings of fullness), or both. If you take prescription medication for weight loss, Omobolanle monitors you to ensure the medicine is safe and effective.

As your plan continues, she can make adjustments as necessary to ensure you stay on track and help you with your weight loss goals. 

NugaHealth Primary Care offers all-encompassing weight management, and the weight loss program is an important step in achieving health goals for many patients. If you need expert guidance for weight loss, call the office or book an appointment online today.
