Weight Loss Q & A

How can weight loss improve my health?

Losing weight is about more than just looking great in your favorite clothes. It boosts self-confidence and reduces your risk of many leading causes of death. Obesity is associated with many serious medical conditions, such as:

  • Heart disease and stroke
  • High blood pressure
  • Diabetes
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Cancer
  • Sleep apnea and other breathing problems

Weight loss is likely to lead to numerous health benefits, including lower blood pressure and balanced blood sugar levels.

What are my options for medical weight loss treatment?

Many people struggle to find a weight loss plan that really works. With so many fad diets out there, it’s hard to know what’s actually effective.

The doctors at Tangchitnob MD make it easy for you by offering a variety of medical weight loss strategies they find most effective. Based on your unique biology and particular needs, they may recommend:

  • Hormone optimization therapy
  • Bioidentical thyroid hormone optimization
  • The HCG diet
  • Laser liposuction
  • Autologous fat grafting
  • Contrave, an FDA cleared weight loss pill with appetite suppression
  • Semaglutide, an FDA-cleared medication for weight

How do hormones affect weight loss?

It’s natural for hormone levels to decline with age, but even a small change in these metabolism-regulating chemicals can have major effects on your body. Hormone imbalances can cause a variety of problems, such as:

  • Increased appetite and cravings
  • Difficulty losing weight
  • Mood swings
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Decreased energy

What is hormone optimization therapy?

Your body is home to a variety of hormones, such as estrogen, testosterone, thyroid hormone, and human growth hormone (HGH). Low levels of any one of these hormones can slow your metabolism and make it harder to lose weight.

Hormone optimization therapy promotes healthy weight loss by addressing the root problem. The doctors at Tangchitnob MD begin by identifying your hormone imbalance through comprehensive testing. Then they develop a personalized treatment plan to restore your hormone balance.

What is the HCG diet?

HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) is the hormone pregnant women make. Don’t worry, this diet is for both men and women.

HCG also plays a key role in the HCG diet, which has grown popular for its ability to produce rapid weight loss of up to a pound a day.

Though it’s unclear exactly how HCG assists weight loss, research suggests it decreases feelings of hunger and reduces muscle loss while on the diet.
