What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss helps you shed unwanted pounds consistently and safely with long-lasting results. The experienced doctors at Quench Wellness use proven methods to ensure you lose weight and keep it off for good.

Excess weight has a significant impact on health. It causes or worsens many common diseases, including:

  • Atherosclerosis (narrowed arteries)
  • Strokes
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)
  • Heart disease
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Ulcers
  • Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
  • Joint pain and arthritis
  • Hypertension (high blood pressure)
  • Sexual dysfunction
  • Some cancers

People with weight problems are also more likely to experience low self-esteem, anxiety, depression, skin conditions, and infections. Medical weight loss helps you avoid these issues and many others.

What do medical weight loss programs involve?

Quench Wellness medical weight loss programs consist of lifestyle changes that systematically replace bad habits with healthy ones. For example, you learn how to gauge portion sizes, and the team teaches you behavioral therapy techniques that help you manage cravings.

To make life easier, Quench Wellness uses high-protein meal supplements to ensure you get the correct nutrients while avoiding foods that cause weight gain. Some patients might also benefit from glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) prescription injections. These substances include semaglutide, a weekly appetite suppressant injection.

Lipotropic B12 fat metabolism boost injections increase fat burning and release fat deposits from the inner thighs, buttocks, stomach, neck, and hips. Carnitine promotes fat loss and improves energy use during exercise.

Everyone’s transformative road is unique, so the team has a customizable menu offering the flexibility you need to reach your goals.
