The weight loss program utilizes a combination of exercise, dietary changes (including meal replacements), supplements to boost metabolism and decrease inflammation, and regular monitoring to the determine the effectiveness of your efforts to date.
This revolutionary approach to weight management is only available at your doctor’s office.
For patients looking for a “better control with fewer meds” approach to diabetes management, look no further. This program will help improve your overall health and energy while lowering the risk or intensity of diabetes symptoms as well as blood pressure, heart disease, sleep apnea, and more.
What to Expect
At your initial evaluation, you will meet with Dr. Krishna for a physical exam and review of your medical history. He will measure your body composition (body fat and lean body mass), which will be used to calculate your resting metabolic rate, determine the calorie requirements for your meal plan, and customize your weight loss program according to your goals.
You will visit our office for a 15-day follow-up, followed by monthly visits until you have met your weight loss goal. At each visit, your wellness coach – a registered and licensed dietician, certified diabetes educator, or nurse practitioner – will meet with you to provide support, feedback, and behavioral education. Your coach will also re-test your body composition and metabolic rate to track your fat loss and adjust your plan as needed.
If you are an established patient of our practice, Dr. Krishna will also adjust your medications for diabetes, hypertension, hyperlipidemia, etc., as you lose weight.
If you are not a patient of our practice, you are still welcome to join the program. Your primary physician and other established physicians will continue to manage your other medical conditions and medications, with regular feedback from Dr. Krishna about your weight loss progress.
