Weight Management Q&A

What is weight management?

Weight management involves achieving or maintaining a healthy weight using counseling, medical treatments, and other strategies that help you feel confident and reduce chronic disease risks. If you’re overweight or obese, weight loss can help:

  • Reduce high cholesterol
  • Lower high blood pressure
  • Improve blood sugar
  • Give you more energy
  • Lower your risk of diabetes and heart disease
  • Boost your confidence

If you’ve tried losing weight on your own without success, medical weight loss with Voss Family Clinic increases your chance of reaching your goal weight. The practice offers the medical treatment, and motivational support needed to help you succeed long-term.

What should I expect during a weight-loss appointment?

During your first weight-management appointment, the team reviews your medical history, weighs you, checks your vital signs, and completes a physical exam. They may also use blood tests to determine if you have hormone imbalances or other chronic conditions that can hinder weight loss. 

Voss Family Clinic offers weight loss injections as part of treatment, such as lipotropic injections or semaglutide products, which are supplements used for fat loss. These are intended to complement other aspects of a healthy weight loss plan, including calorie deficit and exercise regimen. Your provider at Voss Family Clinic will evaluate your health thoroughly before recommending the right injection for you. 

The team at Voss Family Clinic often recommends semaglutide products, such as Ozempic®, to expedite weight loss. Ozempic encourages the pancreas to make more insulin during periods of high blood sugar. By preventing your body from releasing too much sugar, your digestion slows and prevents food movement from your stomach, so you feel full longer.

How much weight can I lose?

The weight you’ll lose during medical weight loss with Voss Family Clinic depends on your weight-loss goals and initial body weight. In some cases, expect to lose about 1-2 pounds per week or up to five pounds weekly. Routine follow-up appointments and weigh-ins help you stay on track with your long-term weight-management journey.
