What is a weight loss management program?

The weight loss management program offered by Nu Pathway Healthcare and Wellness is a complete, medically supervised plan that helps you lose weight and keep it off.

Before making any specific recommendations, the team does an in-depth clinical exam. They ask about your weight struggles and weight goal, and your usual diet and exercise routine.

They review your medical history and do a physical exam. They also run lab tests and health screenings to determine if an underlying health condition contributes to your weight loss struggles.

The team creates a customized weight loss management program that includes meal plans, nutritional supplements, and an exercise program.

Your plan can also include weight loss medications. These include appetite suppressants and drugs that lower the amount of fat you absorb from what you eat.

Once in place, the team schedules regular follow-up appointments to keep an eye on your weight, talk to you about your successes and setbacks, and provide lifestyle counseling.
