Medical Weight Loss Q&A

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is a comprehensive approach to weight management supervised by the professional team at North Texas Med360. 

The program involves personalized plans that may include dietary changes, exercise recommendations, behavior modification strategies, and, in some cases, medication or aesthetic procedures.

How does medical weight loss differ from traditional weight loss programs?

The medical weight loss program at North Texas Med360 is guided by Dr. Yamuna Gurrapu, who is Board Certified in both Obesity and Internal Medicine. Our program is customized to your specific needs and health conditions. The program uses evidence-based strategies and includes the latest medications, like Wegovy®, Zepbound®, Contrave®, Mounjaro®, and Ozempic®, to help you effectively lose pounds. 

Medical weight loss considers your health history and personal needs. It includes safe, sustainable practices and isn’t a fad or scheme that makes empty promises.

Who benefits from medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss may be right for you if you’re overweight or obese and have struggled to achieve significant and sustainable weight loss through diet and exercise alone. You may also invest in medical weight loss if you have obesity-related health conditions, such as diabetes, high blood pressure, or sleep apnea.

What does a medical weight loss program typically involve?

The medical weight loss program at North Texas Med360 begins with a comprehensive evaluation of your health history, lifestyle habits, and weight loss goals. A personalized plan is developed based on your initial assessment. 

Your plan may include:

  • InBody Composition Analysis
  • Bloodwork 
  • Dietary recommendations
  • Exercise suggestions
  • Behavior modification strategies
  • Prescription medications 

Once you are close to your ideal weight, the providers may also offer aesthetic treatments like TruSculpt® ID to sculpt specific stubborn areas that just won’t release fat. 

What prescription medications do you offer as part of your medical weight-loss plans?

The providers at North Texas Med360 may prescribe specific medications, including Ozempic, Mounjaro®, Wegovy®, Zepbound®, and Contrave®. 

These medications are helpful for those who have not achieved significant results through lifestyle modifications alone. These medications work through different mechanisms to help reduce appetite, increase feelings of fullness, and regulate blood sugar levels, ultimately leading to weight loss.
