What happens during weight management?

During your first weight management appointment, Dr. Lee reviews your medical history, medication regimen, and symptoms you may have. She weighs you, determines your body mass index (BMI) and goal weight, and checks your blood pressure and other vital signs.

Dr. Lee recommends blood tests to check for disease risk factors, nutritional deficiencies, and hormone imbalances. She reviews your usual dietary intake and other lifestyle habits. When the results of your blood tests are available, Dr. Lee develops a personalized weight management plan.

Your weight loss program consists of individualized meal and exercise plans, dietary supplements when necessary, and weight loss medications in many cases. You might need hormone therapy or other treatments to help you manage a chronic disease.

Dr. Lee meets with you throughout your weight loss journey to ensure it’s effective. She can make changes to your weight loss plan if needed to give you the best results.

You might lose 1-2 pounds weekly, or more in some cases until you reach your desired body weight. Dr. Lee helps you maintain your new goal weight by monitoring your overall health, hormone levels, and possible barriers to success.
