Weight Loss Q & A

Why is losing weight so hard?

For some people, losing weight is not just a matter of eating fewer calories or exercising more. You may have a metabolic problem that makes you feel hungry more often or an underlying health condition that prevents you from losing weight through the usual methods of diet and exercise.

Before you consider a permanent, surgical solution to weight loss, schedule an appointment at Skin and Body Curvatures to learn about noninvasive medically supervised weight loss services.

How can a doctor help me lose weight?

Mark Nowacki, MD, is a board-certified doctor specializing in internal medicine at Skin and Body Curvatures. He offers an integrative, holistic approach to your weight loss challenges. 

Not only can he and the medical team diagnose any underlying health conditions, like hormone imbalance, and get you started with the right treatment plan, but he can offer weight loss support in the form of nutritional counseling, medication management, exercise plans, and vitamin B12 shots.

Can medications help me lose weight?

Being overweight increases your risk of health problems such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes. If a healthy diet and exercise program isn’t enough to help you lose weight, The Skin and Body Curvatures team of weight loss specialists may recommend medications. Medication management for weight loss may reduce feelings of hunger or make it harder for your body to absorb the fat from the food you consume.

Patients with a body mass index (BMI) over 30, or a BMI of 27 along with high blood pressure or type 2 diabetes, often receive a weight loss medication prescription.

Can vitamin B12 shots help me lose weight?

Skin and Body Curvatures offer vitamin B12 shots as part of their overall weight-loss programs. Vitamin B12 shots increase energy and your metabolism, which should help you lose weight. You may struggle to lose weight due to a B12 deficiency, in which case receiving B12 shots can help you overcome the challenge and shed unwanted pounds.
