What is weight management?

Weight management involves services that support healthy and safe weight loss. Maintaining a healthy weight is essential to good health due to the complications that obesity can cause.

Carrying excess weight can significantly increase your risk factors for chronic pain, Type 2 diabetes, and hypertension (high blood pressure). By losing even a small percentage of body weight, you can enjoy more energy, enhanced mental clarity, and better overall wellness.

Omni Primary & Urgent Care offers medically supervised weight management services for adults and adolescents aged 12 and up.

When should I consider a weight management consultation?

You should schedule a weight management consultation at Omni Primary & Urgent Care if you find it difficult to lose weight on your own.

You can also benefit from the team’s weight management services if you have a lot of weight to lose or have existing health issues that are complicated by your current weight.

As you get older, your metabolism slows down. If you have pain from arthritis or other health issues that limit physical activity, weight loss can become increasingly difficult.

The weight loss specialists offer a range of resources that help you set and achieve your weight loss goals. Through a customized weight management program, you can also learn lifestyle and diet strategies to maintain a healthy weight for the rest of your life.

What can I expect during my initial weight management appointment?

At your first weight management appointment at Omni Primary & Urgent Care, the providers review your personal and family medical histories and any current health issues.

They complete a physical exam to check your weight, blood pressure, and heart function. You might also need blood testing or other lab work to identify underlying health issues, such as a hormone imbalance or thyroid disorder that interferes with successful weight loss.

Based on your exam and lab test results, the providers help you set weight loss goals and provide strategies you can use to achieve them. Your weight loss program may include the following:

  • Daily exercise
  • Meal planning
  • Nutrition counseling
  • Dietary supplements
  • Weight loss medications

The providers continue to monitor your weight loss progress through in-office visits and virtual telehealth appointments. As you reach milestones, they help you set new wellness goals to support your existing and long-term health.
