Medical Weight Loss Q & A

What results are possible with medical weight loss?

Research shows that losing just 5-10% of excess weight can make significant improvements in:

  • Cholesterol levels
  • Hypertension
  • Diabetes
  • Insulin resistance
  • Obstructive sleep apnea
  • Inflammation

With Oregon Medical Weight Loss, our patients lose an average of 6% of their weight, achieving many health improvements. Concrete results are evident for people with metabolic syndrome, for example. Men and women with elevated insulin levels who go through our weight-loss program experience a 40% decrease in their levels and maintain that drop three months later.

Why choose medical weight loss?

You may have tried several different diets, exercise programs, or other weight loss fads to try and lose weight. These strategies often make false promises and lead to failed weight loss and even weight increase, filling you with frustration and hopelessness when it comes to your size. Many of these diets are ill-advised or even dangerous. Even if you do successfully lose weight, the results are short-lived.

Our Oregon Medical Weight Loss team recognizes that obesity is neither your fault nor a sign of personal failure: it’s a chronic, relapsing condition. Dr. Gulick, DO, Dr. Lowy, MD, and the staff, work with you around your personal concerns and struggles to help you achieve your desired weight loss for good. The board-certified and specially trained providers use blood work and other tests to look carefully for underlying medical causes of your weight gain and retention. When the cause is found, the solution to resolve that condition can be found.
