Does the doctor prescribe medications to help you lose weight?
The medical staff will determine if you can benefit from medications and if they will be safe for you. We utilize many different tools to help patients lose weight and medications are an option. Many of our patients find they do not need "diet" medications and can lose weight once their metabolic issues are fully diagnosed and treated with the correct treatment plan. Many of our patients have medical conditions like heart disease or high blood pressure which makes the use of diet medications risky. The treatment plan is designed to work without medication, but medication as an adjunct treatment may be considered if Dr. Cederquist feels it would be safe to do so.
