Medical Weight Loss Q&A

What is medical weight loss?

The medical weight loss program helps you to lose extra weight under medical supervision. At The Well-Nest, the experienced weight management specialists use a functional medicine approach to find the true causes of your weight struggles. They then help you to make changes that lead to weight loss.

How is weight loss different in functional medicine?

Most weight loss programs simply tell you to cut calories, increase exercise, and maybe take a prescription appetite suppressant. The problem with this approach is that it doesn’t even touch on the reason you have extra weight in the first place.

If you don’t address underlying factors, you can’t expect lasting results; that’s why The Well-Nest digs deeper. You undergo extensive testing to find all of the factors contributing to your weight gain, including hormonal, environmental, and metabolic influences.

After your provider tracks your weight issues back to their source, they can create a personalized road map to weight loss and improved health.

How do I start a medical weight loss program?

The first step is your comprehensive blood tests. These tests check standard and advanced metrics, including:

  • Autoimmune markers
  • Hormone levels
  • Blood sugar levels
  • Electrolyte levels
  • Kidney function
  • Liver function
  • Inflammatory markers
  • Food allergies
  • Thyroid function
  • Adrenal function

Your comprehensive blood tests also check many other specific aspects of your health, and these findings are invaluable in creating your personalized weight loss plan.

Depending on your situation, your provider may recommend a deep dive into the root causes of your weight struggles. Functional medicine testing includes blood, stool, saliva, and breath tests, along with other specific methods of gathering useful data about your health.

With functional medicine testing, you can identify gastrointestinal (GI) disorders, autoimmune disease, heavy metals, Lyme disease, food sensitivities, and other problems that may influence your weight.

Using all of this information, your provider recommends a nutrition plan, exercise plan, and supplements that can help you achieve your weight loss goals. Your provider at The Well-Nest is there for you at every step of your weight loss, providing education, guidance, and support.

You also have access to the InBody 210 scale, which analyzes your body fat, muscle mass, and water weight. This information can help you track progress and determine what changes you need to make.

Medical weight loss with a functional medicine approach gives you detailed answers about why you’ve struggled with your weight in the past — and it also gives you a clear path to weight loss success.
