Medically Supervised Weight Loss
More Americans than ever before are classified as obese or morbidly obese. It is a medical condition where excess body fat begins to have adverse effects on a person’s health.
While being obese leads to numerous health problems, this condition can be corrected. Obesity is the leading preventable cause of death in North America.
DietMD® is the newest weight loss service by Addison Internal Medicine. Led by Dr Murphy, our program is based on science and evidence. We show our patients how to easily improve their health with our simplistic dietary changes. Our patients eat real meals, and see real results, without feeling deprived – that’s our promise!
Our physicians teach our patients how to eat the right food combinations in order to lower insulin levels and keep those levels low. This is how we lose weight and improve diabetes control.
Tired of Failed Diets?
We recognize that most patients who seek our care for weight loss have tried and failed many times on their own to lose weight. We understand. Our doctors at Addison Internal Medicine offer medically supervised weight loss care. While diet, exercise, and behavioral changes are the primary ways to manage weight loss, there are other key services we offer that help patients lose weight. Those key services are:
Gastric Bypass Surgery
For those considering gastric bypass surgery, our doctors offer pre and post-operative care. The success rate for Gastric Bypass can increase by preparing for surgery and having a plan after surgery. Often, a surgeon will recommend some weight loss prior to surgery. Our doctors can offer medically supervised weight loss to help you achieve the goals set prior to surgery. After the surgery is performed, it is important to get your body nutritionally healthy and strong. We work with patients to put together an appropriate nutrition and exercise plan before surgery and after surgery.
