Procedures / Treatments

  • Cholesterol Management A treatment plan designed by a healthcare provider to lower a patient’s cholesterol level. A plan includes recommendations for improved lifestyle, diet, weight, and physical activity. Other risk factors are also assessed that can affect a patient’s cholesterol level. In some cases, cholesterol-lowering medications may also provide additional benefit to managing a healthy cholesterol level. Cholesterol management also involves decreasing the LDL cholesterol (“bad” cholesterol) and making sure HDL (“good” cholesterol) is at recommended levels. Patients and healthcare professionals work together to help improve and maintain heart health and reduce the risk for cardiovascular disease and stroke.
  • Diabetes Treatments related to diabetes and how the body handles blood sugar.
  • Diabetes Education Third party training and support for a patient's diabetes self-management and overall health.
  • Hormone Replacement Men and women both experience natural fluctuations in hormone levels throughout life, but as you age, those fluctuations become sharper and more severe. During andropause and menopause, hormone levels drop significantly. This can lead to a series of health consequences, including disturbed mental well-being, trouble sleeping, loss of energy, reduced sex drive, fatigue and more.
  • Insulin Resistance Insulin resistance is the name given when the body’s cells don’t respond properly to the hormone insulin. Insulin resistance is the driving factor leading to type 2 diabetes and prediabetes.
  • Medical Weight Loss A decrease in body weight/mass resulting from voluntary (diet, exercise) or involuntary (illness) circumstances. Medical weight loss is monitored by a specialist trained in Obesity Medicine.
  • Metabolic Syndrome

    Metabolic syndrome is not a disease in itself but a combination of risk factors that include:

    • High blood pressure
    • High blood sugar
    • Unhealthy cholesterol levels
    • Excess abdominal fat
  • Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS) is a condition that causes them to develop male body characteristics and potentially become overweight. Women with polycystic ovary syndrome may have infrequent or prolonged menstrual periods and have an excess of male hormone (androgen) levels.
  • Weight Loss for Osteoarthritis Extra weight puts pressure on joints while extra body fat increases inflammation associated with osteoarthritis. A medical weight loss specialist can help patients control weight to their improve symptoms.
  • Well Child Checkups The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) developed a set of comprehensive health guidelines for well-child care that are conducted during well child checkups. These routine visits include growth and development monitoring, preventative care, and vaccinations if needed.

Childhood obesity is a growing epidemic that does not discriminate. It affects infants, toddlers, kids and teens; it grabs hold of children from all races, backgrounds and households. In fact, it is making its way into more households than ever before, with childhood obesity being reported to have more than doubled in children and quadrupled in adolescents in the past 30 years.
