Medically supervised weight loss is a custom treatment program designed to help you shed excess pounds. If you’re overweight and have tried several of the many fad diets exercise routines that are out there without results, consider teaming up with Dr. Weng.
Losing even a small amount of weight can improve your health. When you maintain a healthy weight, you’re much less likely to experience heart disease, diabetes, arthritis, and even certain cancers.
Dr. Weng’s medically supervised weight loss program involves several aspects, including:
The meals and snacks that you eat directly affect your health and energy levels. If you want to lose fat and keep it off, you must eat a nutritious and balanced diet. Dr. Weng’s nutritional recommendations will be appropriate for your age, activity level, and health history. He is a big fan of intermittent fasting to assist you in your weight loss goals.
If you want to lose weight and keep it off, you must stay physically active. Even if you aren’t a fan of the gym, there are plenty of low-impact activities that can help you burn calories, including walking, biking, and swimming. Dr. Weng’s recommendations will be appropriate to your fitness level.
You have tried everything. You have experimented with every diet from Atkins to keto, you've even gotten a personal trainer to lose those inches and, still, you are unable to lose weight. If that is the case, it may be time to try something different. Whether that Semaglutide or lipotropic injections or both. Due to higher levels of concentration in the blood stream injections are a great way to help you lose weight, and are available at Dr Weng's Advanced Medicine's weight loss clinic .

Semaglutide has been used for over 5 years (2017) in the treatment of type 2 Diabetes. It is one of a class of medications called Glucagon like peptide agonists or GLP agonists. This hormone is made in the intestinal cells (small intestine) and helps regulate insulin and glucose as well as slow digestion and turn off your hunger center in your brain. After seeing Diabetic patients lose significant weight on this medication further studies were done which showed up to 18% loss of body weight. Most weight loss drugs rarely get up to 10% and are more likely to be in the range between 5 and 7%. The American Academy of Family Physicians has touted Semaglutide as being the most impressive weight loss medication in decades!
Who: In 2021 Semaglutide was FDA approved for anyone with a BMI >30 or >27 with a least 1 comorbid condition such as hypertension, pre-diabetes, heart disease etc. People who have certain conditions such as Pancreatitis, active gallbladder issues, retinopathy (eye vessel disease) or other rare endocrine conditions (see packet insert) may not be a candidate.
