Medical Weight Loss

Assessing medical factors that may be preventing weight loss

Medical Weight Loss

Weight loss can be influenced by various factors, including medical conditions that might hinder men’s ability to shed pounds despite their efforts. Addressing these medical conditions can significantly improve weight management outcomes.

Hypothyroidism occurs when the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormones, leading to a slow metabolism. This condition can cause weight gain and make it difficult to lose weight. Symptoms include fatigue, cold intolerance, and depression. A blood test can diagnose hypothyroidism, and treatment typically involves hormone replacement therapy.

Cushing’s Syndrome caused by prolonged exposure to high levels of cortisol, a hormone produced by the adrenal glands. Cushing’s Syndrome can lead to weight gain, particularly around the abdomen and face, and muscle weakness. It may result from prolonged use of corticosteroid medications or adrenal gland tumors. Diagnosis involves blood and imaging tests, and treatment may include surgery, radiation, or medication to reduce cortisol levels.

Low testosterone levels in men, known as hypogonadism, can contribute to weight gain and difficulty losing weight. Testosterone plays a role in regulating muscle mass, fat distribution, and metabolism. Symptoms of low testosterone include reduced libido, fatigue, and loss of muscle mass. Treatment options include testosterone replacement therapy, which can help improve body composition and energy levels.

Insulin resistance, a condition where the body’s cells do not respond effectively to insulin, can lead to elevated blood sugar levels and weight gain. Over time, insulin resistance can develop into type 2 diabetes. Managing these conditions often requires dietary changes, physical activity, and medication to improve insulin sensitivity and control blood sugar levels.

Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) is a condition characterized by repeated episodes of blocked breathing during sleep. It is commonly associated with obesity and can lead to weight gain due to disrupted sleep patterns and hormonal imbalances that affect appetite and metabolism. Treatment for OSA includes lifestyle changes, continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) therapy, and, in some cases, surgery.

Mental health conditions such as depression and anxiety can contribute to weight gain and impede weight loss efforts. These conditions can affect eating behaviors, leading to overeating or poor dietary choices. Additionally, some antidepressant medications can cause weight gain. Addressing mental health through therapy, medication, and lifestyle changes is essential for successful weight management. Various medications can cause weight gain as a side effect. These include certain antidepressants, antipsychotics, corticosteroids, and medications for diabetes and high blood pressure.

Semaglutide & Tirzepatide Medical Weight Loss

Semaglutide and tirzepatide stand at the forefront of medical weight loss solutions, offering an effective yet long-term approach. These game-changing medications work by mimicking hormones responsible for appetite regulation in order to decrease hunger while increasing feelings of fullness. This mechanism not only enables significant weight loss but also supports blood glucose management, making these drugs particularly suitable for people living with or at risk of type 2 diabetes.

Both Semaglutide and Tirzepatide have undergone rigorous clinical trials, proving both their efficacy in weight reduction and safety profiles. When administered within our medically supervised weight loss program, semaglutide and tirzepatide provide patients with a holistic approach to weight management that includes dietary guidance and lifestyle recommendations alongside pharmaceutical treatment. We often see improved health along with weight loss.

Harmonizing Hormonal Balance

For our medical weight loss programs, we place great emphasis on the intricate interplay of hormones that regulate metabolism, appetite and fat distribution. Since hormonal imbalances can often be the root cause of weight gain or inability to lose it, our approach aims to identify and correct such irregularities through comprehensive hormonal assessments to identify any discrepancies that could thwart weight loss efforts. At NuMale, we focus on optimizing hormone balance so as to promote all aspects of health that contribute to weight management, such as sleep quality, stress levels and energy utilization. By targeting hormonal issues for weight control we provide an avenue for long-term improvements beyond the scale – contributing to overall better quality of life and improved fat-burning/weight loss results.
