The journey begins with the physician. Although it is not a majority of cases, there are sometimes causes of obesity which are more than meets the eye. There are some metabolic challenges to the human body which cause obesity. Sometimes specific treatments by the primary care specialist are enough to reverse the ravages of weight gain. Sometimes not. The physician’s primary goal with the obese patient is to rule out a treatable metabolic cause for his/her weight gain. If one is found, the patient will be referred back to the primary care physician for continued treatment. If not, then weight gain and obesity will be treated by our protocols.
The client is given choices in a cafeteria style, because different people have different needs. Because you have come for the services of a medical bariatrician (medical weight loss specialist), you will likely be considered for therapy with medicine to give you a good start and a common point for follow-up. To undo the reasons that got you to this point, you will may be referred to a registered dietician and given a prescription for exercise or referred to an exercise specialist. Depending on your need, you may be referred to a behavioral psychology expert.
