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


At Southwest Family Physicians, people lose 6% of their weight on average, achieving many health improvements. Concrete results are evident for people with metabolic syndrome, for example. Men and women with elevated insulin levels who undergo the weight-loss program experience a 40% decrease in their levels and maintain that drop three months later.

Why Undergo Medical Weight Loss?

You may have tried several different diets, exercise programs, or other fads to try and lose weight. These strategies often make false promises and lead to failed weight loss, 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.

At Southwest Family Physicians, the team recognizes that obesity is not your fault or a sign of personal failure. It’s a chronic, relapsing condition. Dr. Lowy and the staff work with you and your personal concerns and struggles to help you achieve weight loss for good. The board-certified and specially trained providers look carefully for underlying medical causes of your weight gain and retention. If a medical cause is found, the experts work to resolve that condition.
