Excess weight is definitely one of the big health problems in the Western world. It is the cause of cardiovascular disease, diabetes, joint deterioration and other widespread lifestyle diseases.
We have diagnosed hormonal imbalances for many patients suffering from excess weight. The efficiency of the thyroid gland is of especial significance in this regard. Water retention in the hands, arms, etc. and “bulging” eyes can be an indication of functional impairment of the thyroid gland. If the thyroid gland produces too little of the thyroid hormones (T3, T4) over a number of years, other endocrine glands can become exhausted in the long term thus creating a problem with wider implications.
Unhealthy nutrition, a lack of exercise and other negative lifestyle habits certainly also play a part in causing excessive weight.
Use Bioidentical Hormones to Reach Your Ideal Weight
At the beginning of medically assisted weight loss therapy, your health status will be determined using anamnesis, a medical examination and relevant laboratory findings. Your hormonal status will be analyzed and on the basis of this, we will develop a therapy plan customized to your individual needs and personal goals.
After the hormonal balance has been restored, successful therapy results can quickly be achieved in combination with a well-planned change of diet and regular physical training. In this way, you can not only reach your ideal weight, but usually maintain it also in the long term.
If you have any local problem zones you find annoying in addition to weight loss, it can be helpful to have liposuction on these areas performed before you actually lose weight. Estrogen-producing fat pads on the abdomen and hips promote the accumulation of fat, and can thus trigger a cycle of weight gain.
In addition, liposuction before actual weight loss is able to reduce the risk of the formation of excess, hanging skin flaps and promote regression of the tissue after weight loss. It is therefore important to note the following: If you plan to have liposuction carried out, it must be done before, and not after weight loss.
A program for medically assisted weight loss typically lasts several months. During therapy, you will keep a diet logbook and will be in continual contact with us. The outcome of the treatment will be regularly controlled and therapy adapted to your needs during the process.
