What happens during medically supervised weight loss?

Medically supervised weight loss at Broadway Family Clinic begins with an initial medical evaluation. Your provider weighs you and determines your body mass index (BMI) and your ideal body weight. They also check your blood pressure, pulse, and other vital signs. 

During a physical exam, your specialist looks for signs of possible medical issues. They discuss your medical history, usual nutrition and exercise patterns, other lifestyle habits, medications, and any unusual symptoms.

Your Broadway Family Clinic provider also offers health screenings. You might need a blood test, heart-function testing, diabetes or cholesterol screenings, or additional diagnostic tests to screen for medical issues affecting weight loss.

Your personalized weight loss plan may consist of:

  • Custom diet and exercise plan
  • Stress-reduction techniques
  • Behavior-change therapy
  • Dietary supplements
  • Weight loss medications
  • Disease management
  • Hormone optimization 
  • Follow-up visits

Your Broadway Family Clinic provider follows up periodically during your weight loss program to keep you accountable, ensure success, and alter your treatment plan if necessary.

You might lose 1-5 pounds weekly during medically supervised weight loss. After you’ve reached your goal weight, a Broadway Family Clinic provider helps you maintain your new weight long-term. Call the office any time you have questions.
