Am I Eligible For A Medical Weight Loss Program?
Medical weight loss is a safe method proven to ensure steady weight loss until a desired healthy weight is achieved. Generally, the program is most useful to those patients with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher, or those with a BMI above 27 with further obesity-related conditions, such as high blood pressure, diabetes and sleep apnea.
Body mass index is a convenient rule of thumb that uses your weight and height to establish an ideal weight range for you. You can work out your BMI using the following calculation:
BMI = ( Weight (lbs.) / Height Squared (in.2) ) x 703
If your results are between 18.5 and 25, you are generally within a normal weight range for someone of your height. Between 25 and 30, a person is considered overweight, and above 30 they are considered obese according to this estimate. This is a rough guide, however, and at AllCare Family Medicine And Urgent Care in Tysons Corner our physicians carry out a series of tests to ascertain your current condition and provide a treatment plan best suited to your desired weight goals.
How Soon Will I See The Effects?
Medical weight loss is highly individual, based on factors that include your current and desired weight. Following our experienced weight loss experts’ instructions, any physical changes will happen in a controlled and safe manner, promoting healthy habits so that you may maintain your objective for longer.
Our patients lose, on average, between 1 and 5 pounds every week. With our dedicated support, this can continue throughout the length of the program, and you can experience losses of up to 40 pounds in two months. The results will be consistently monitored by AllCare’s specialists and adapted as your condition improves.
