Medically Supervised Weight Loss Programs and You
The struggle to manage our weight is real. Many of us choose diets that take us on a merry-go-round of weight loss and weight gain. This kind of “weight cycling” has a negative impact on our ability to keep up the right level of nutrition in our bodies. Other health risks of this so-called yo-yo dieting include damage to arteries, increase the bad (LDL) cholesterol, and add to the risk of heart disease. Close to thirty percent of the population in the United States is battling the ongoing struggle to lose weight and keep it off. Our Medically Supervised Weight Loss Programs can help, especially when the excess body weight is affecting your health and quality of everyday life.
Our program for weight management in Nevada takes into consideration your personal health and those medical conditions that are related to your weight, like pre-diabetes, diabetes, sleep apnea, high blood pressure and heart disease, along with many other connected health factors. Our goal is to help you reach your optimal health and stay at that level to maintain your health.
Dr. Mustafa I. Ahmed, a Board Certified Surgeon and leading weight-loss doctor in Las Vegas, and his clinical team are trained to help you get on track to succeed by improving your health and your long-term weight loss goals with a specialized, “made for you” diet program.
Your Health Comes First
Dr. Ahmed is a Bariatric Surgeon who is also a trained obesity medicine physician. There are many individuals who do not want to approach surgery, but do need the help of a trained doctor that can support their weight loss program.
The main advantage of going to Southern Nevada Bariatrics is that we offer a comprehensive weight loss program that offers our patients both surgical and non-surgical options. Dr. Ahmed believes it’s important that you have a choice in your care. The clinical staff is trained on how to treat weight conditions and challenges that may be negatively affected by medical issues and not the individual’s own willpower.
When you visit Southern Nevada Bariatrics, your first appointment will last about one hour. This appointment involves a focused medical evaluation for those diseases that are related to obesity. It will include a review of your current health, weight loss attempts, medications and so much more. Based on that knowledge, Dr. Ahmed and his team will personalize a weight loss plan that is right for you.
Additional testing may be recommended depending on your medical history and the weight loss plans moving forward.
We Address Behavior and Lifestyle, Diet and Exercise
Other considerations are to help with the overall health and quality of life for the individual. In order to get long term results we have to look at the big picture.
For instance, you might be struggling with anxiety or depression caused by your weight or in your work or personal life and we believe that we should address those in order to maximize your efforts.
There are many moving parts in the plan for weight loss. It is not about being on one of the hundreds of diets that are out there, because you can do that on your own, it’s about managing your weight based on your personal health and lifestyle requirements. We look at the cause and effect of each of these things.
• Your overall health and medical condition
• Your behavior and lifestyle
• Your current activity level and how we can improve it
• Diet and nutrition and how it will help you achieve your personal weight loss goals
