Medically Supervised Weight Loss
Weight Loss Long Island and Doctor Sydney Hughes offer a medically supervised weight loss program to Long Island residents who are affected by obesity and have had limited success losing weight on their own. Medically supervised weight loss is recommended for individuals who need to safely lose a significant amount of weight in order to control other serious conditions, such as type 2 diabetes, hypertension coronary artery disease, and other chronic diseases.
The Benefits of Medically Supervised Weight Loss
Medically assisted or medically supervised weight loss is considered as one of the safest, healthiest and most effective ways of losing weight. At Weight Loss Long Island our medically supervised weight loss program will monitor the following criteria to ensure the patients best health outcomes while undergoing weight loss treatment:
- Blood Pressure
- Heart Rate
- Sugar Levels
- Activity Levels
- Blood Work
- Medication Levels
People that are considered to be obese and have not been successful in dieting or losing weight by themselves may well be the best candidates for medically supervised weight loss programs. Our program offers low calorie meal replacements and the help of experts in weight loss and medically trained professionals to help you lose weight quickly, safely and then keep the weight off.
If you need to lose a significant amount of weight in order to control other serious medical conditions for example type 2 diabetes or hypertension, medically supervised weight loss using meal replacements may be your best option. This can further aid your physical healing when recovering from surgery and help with other weight related complications like a hernia or worn joints.
We also offer a comprehensive behavioral support system and ongoing nutritional support and when combined with exercise, weight loss maintenance is a lot less daunting.
We will work with you to help determine the best medically supervised weight loss program for you to achieve your weight loss and health goals.
