Weight Loss Medication With Promising Results

Medication For Sustainable Weight Loss

Losing weight can be a difficult and often disheartening process. You may have tried everything from fad diets and grueling workout regimens to risky supplements, only to find that the pounds just won't seem to budge. In today’s age, it can seem impossible to find weight loss pills that actually work. However, there are other weight loss options available at the Medical Weight Loss Center of Lancaster.

At the Medical Weight Loss Center of Lancaster, we understand that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to weight loss. Obesity is a complex problem, and there are often medical, mental, and medication issues that can cause weight gain. Further, environmental and genetic factors frequently combine to make weight loss all the more difficult.

For many people, like those with medical conditions that make it harder to lose weight, medication may be the answer. Prescription medication can promote consistent weight loss when diet and exercise have failed. Even after Bariatric Surgery, the right medication can help to resume weight loss.

We will work with you to create a personalized weight loss plan that includes the use of medication, if appropriate for your situation.

The Safer Alternative To Weight Loss Surgery

What Is Weight Loss Medication?

Weight loss medication is a type of prescription drug that can help you lose weight by suppressing your appetite, increasing your metabolism, or both. These medications can be an effective addition to a healthy diet and exercise plan.

Our practice prescribes FDA-approved weight loss pills and injectable medications to be used in conjunction with sensible eating and increased physical activity. Medications can be very effective in helping you to lose weight, but they are not for everyone. Everyone's body reacts differently to certain medicines and what is effective for one person may not work for another. We work with the individual to find the best medication or medications based on medical history and experience.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why is medication a better alternative to bariatric surgery?

Weight loss medication is often a better alternative to bariatric surgery because it is less invasive and has fewer risks and side effects.

Another reason patients prefer the medication approach is that Bariatric surgery can be very expensive, while weight loss medication is generally more affordable.

Can I use weight loss medication if I have Diabetes?

Weight loss medication can be beneficial for patients with diabetes because losing weight can help to lower blood sugar levels and improve overall health. This is important because high blood sugar levels can lead to serious health complications, such as heart disease, stroke, and kidney failure. At the Medical Weight Loss Center of Lancaster, we consider all of your health conditions and medical history before suggesting any medications.

There are many different types of weight loss medication, but some medications are specifically designed for patients with diabetes.
