Weight Loss Q&A

Why is weight loss important?

Your weight plays a role in many of your biological functions. Carrying too much weight can increase your risk for a range of acute and chronic health conditions, including arthritis, high blood pressure (hypertension), and heart disease.

Losing even a small percentage of excess weight can prevent disease, increase your energy levels, and enhance your quality of life. Maintaining a healthy weight also promotes healthy blood sugar levels to better control Type 2 diabetes and potentially reverse prediabetes. 

However, weight loss can become increasingly difficult as you get older or if you have an underlying disease that negatively affects your metabolism or ability to be physically active.

Clinica Medica Hispana offers medically supervised weight loss services to support safe and healthy weight loss in adults. The providers offer customized weight management plans that may include lifestyle changes, nutritional counseling, IV therapy, and semaglutide injections.

How do semaglutide injections support weight loss?

Semaglutide is a medication that supports weight loss by decreasing your appetite to prevent overeating.  

Clinica Medica Hispana provides prescription Wegovy® semaglutide injections to suppress your natural appetite hormones, so you eat fewer calories.

When used in combination with a healthy diet and daily exercise, semaglutide can help you lose weight consistently. You also learn how to make the lifelong changes necessary to maintain your weight loss results.

What are the benefits of medically supervised weight loss?

A medically supervised weight loss program supports safe, effective weight loss based on your body type, overall health, and weight loss goals.

The Clinica Medica Hispana team completes a comprehensive health exam, including a complete physical and lab work, to identify any underlying medical issues that interfere with your metabolism. They also ensure you’re a candidate for semaglutide injections.

The team discusses strategies you can use to improve your diet and incorporate more exercise into your day. They can also recommend modified exercises you can do if you’re limited by arthritis or other chronic pain conditions.

A medically supervised program keeps you accountable for your weight loss goals. You can expect to schedule regular visits to the office for weigh-ins. The team can also help you set new goals as you achieve milestones in your weight loss journey.
