Weight Management Q & A

What is medical weight management?

Weight management at My Health 360 is a medically supervised program with proven success that helps you achieve or maintain a desirable weight and lower your risk of chronic diseases. Dr. Fatima monitors your health and develops a personalized diet and exercise plan to get you on track with a healthy lifestyle.

She counsels you about genomics-guided lifestyle modifications, which use your DNA profile to guide treatment decisions which may be based on:

  • Hormone levels
  • Food cravings
  • Nutrient utilization
  • Metabolism
  • Thyroid function
  • Biochemistry
  • Other genetic factors

Creating an individualized treatment plan based on your unique needs increases your chance of successfully maintaining a healthy weight.

What happens during weight-management appointments?

During your first weight-management appointment, the My Health 360 team weighs you and checks your blood pressure and other vital signs. Dr. Fatima reviews your medical history, asks you about medications you take, and completes a comprehensive intake. 

She may use blood tests to screen you for diabetes, high cholesterol, nutrient deficiencies, thyroid problems, hormone imbalance, and much more. She will review your goals and develop a diet and exercise program customized just for you. 

Dr. Fatima can prescribe medications or hormone therapy when necessary. She counsels you about getting quality sleep, reducing stress, not smoking, taking dietary supplements, and adopting additional healthy lifestyle strategies for weight loss. 

You should attend all scheduled follow-up weight-loss appointments so the My Health 360 team can weigh you, review your progress, and make adjustments to medications or your diet if necessary.
