What Are Medical Weight Loss Services?

Medical weight loss is a service that some doctors and clinics offer in order to help you fight obesity. Obesity is a chronic condition that affects over a third of adults in the United States. Being overweight or obese can increase your risk of type 2 diabetes, heart disease, kidney disease, stroke, fatty liver disease and other major health issues. When you schedule an appointment with Dr. De Castro or Dr. Basit, they will determine if any underlying health conditions may be making it hard for you to lose weight. They will also evaluate your overall health to make sure that beginning a custom weight loss program is safe for you. Your customized weight loss plan will be based on your individual needs, such as how much weight you need to lose, how active you are, and whether you have any preexisting health conditions like diabetes or any nutritional concerns like food allergies.


If you have a lot of weight to lose, but don’t know where to begin, consulting with one of the caring, knowledgeable doctors at De Castro and Basit, MDs, is a great place to start.

How Can Medical Weight Loss Help Me?

When it comes to your body, Drs. De Castro and Basit do not cut corners. Their medical weight loss programs get to the root of your issue. You will not only lose weight, but learn the skills to keep it off too. When you come in for a weight evaluation, Drs. De Castro and Basit will take the time to get to know you and your specific goals. Afterward, they will create a special diet plan specific to you. The diet plan may include exercises, medications, supplements, and other tools for managing your health.
