Routine screening of common conditions associated with weight gain will be assessed at your first visit if not already completed by your family physician. Sometimes this may be screening for type 2 diabetes, low thyroid, or sleeping disturbances such as obstructive sleep apnea.
Medical weight loss can be hindered when these weight-associated disorders are present. They can add ceilings to our progress, and limit how much weight loss success we can achieve. Together, we will review these conditions and optimize them if needed. They play an integral role in optimizing weight loss success. If present, they will be co-treated with your weight loss treatment.
