What is medically-supervised weight loss?
At Emerge Medical, Loreen Williams, APRN, creates a personalized weight loss plan after a obtaining a full medical and diet history including a full panel of bloodwork to rule out the presence of any undiagnosed medical conditions contributing to your weight gain.
What method of weight loss is used at Emerge Medical?
Emerge Medical endorses the restriction of carbohydrates to induce a "fat-burning" metabolic state called ketosis. In addition to restricting carbohydrates, a very-low calorie diet is constructed using a macronutrient profile customized from your calculated metabolic rate. The metabolism of body fat is supported with the optional use of weekly injections with the lipotrophic agents L-Methiomine, Inositol and Choline (better known as MIC injections). hCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) can also be used to facilitate fat loss and, if chosen, is injected daily for a prescribed period of time. Although the state of ketosis itself is a natural appetite suppressant, the addition of a prescription appetite suppressant (if medically appropriate) can be prescribed as a diet aide, however hunger is not often bothersome to those following a "keto" diet.
