Medical Weight Loss

Medical Weight Loss

Are you one of the millions of adults who are struggling to lose weight? Dynamic Health Center can help by developing an individualized medical weight loss
plan. Weight loss can be a struggle because of lifestyle, dietary habits, and lack of exercise. However, there are factors that are seemingly out of a person's control such as hormone imbalance. Here at Dynamic Health Center, we evaluate those possible contributing factors in order to help you meet your weight goals.

Overweight and Obesity Statistics

In the United States being overweight or obese has become a growing problem and worsening with each passing year. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than one-third (36.5%) of Americans are considered obese, and over 70% of Americans are considered either overweight or obese.

What determines being overweight or obese? Being an overweight adult means you have a Body Mass Index (BMI) that exceeds a certain percentage. A BMI is a height to weight ratio. See below to see where you may fall.

BMI Category
Less than 18.5 Underweight
18.5 to <25 Normal Weight
25 to <30 Overweight
30 to <35 Class 1 Obesity
35 to <40 Class 2 Obesity
40 or Higher Class 3 or Severe / Morbid Obesity

What is Medical Weight Loss?

Medical weight loss is an integrative process for adults in need of weight loss assistance. It is individualized and may or may not include the following:

  • Dietary Planning
  • Exercise Planning
  • Lifestyle Modifications
  • A prescription for an appetite suppressant/stimulant
  • Hormone imbalance evaluation


When left untreated, being overweight/obese can worsen and significantly increase chances for developing secondary medical diagnoses. These secondary problems include high blood pressure, Diabetes, high cholesterol, heart disease, stroke, some forms of cancer, osteoarthritis, Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA), and liver disease.

Who is a Candidate for Medical Weight Loss?

Here at Dynamic Health Center, our Medical Provider does an initial weight loss consultation to establish patient centered goals and treatment. Not everyone is a candidate for prescription Phentermine, but that does not mean guidance and a weight loss plan can not be offered. Medical Weight Loss is intended for adults only. Minors with overweight/obesity issues should seek guidance from their Pediatrician or pediatric Nutritionist.

Phentermine

Phentermine is a stimulant and appetite suppressant that can serve as a crutch during the weight loss process. It is FDA approved for short term use. Phentermine should not be used as a substitute for proper diet, exercise or behavioral modifications.

Testimonials

  • "I’ve been dealing with severe pain in my lower lumbar lately, and have tried everything from massage, to acupuncture, to chiropractic. It helped a little, but I was still in pain, so I decided to try something completely new...Trigger point injection (TPI) is a procedure used to treat painful areas of muscle that contain trigger points, or hardened knots of muscle that form when muscles do not relax. My friend Cat Turner is a Nurse Practitioner that performs this therapy, and I HIGHLY recommend her! Thank God she has a steady hand"

  • "Dr. Weigel runs an excellent practice. He uses his extensive knowledge to treat patients. In other words, one doesn't get the same adjustment everytime. It depends on what a person's body needs. And he wants his patients to get well and isn't a quake who is just trying to make money."

  • "Chiropractic care is part of my pain management treatment. Dr Wiegel adjusts his technique to meet my ever changing and specific needs. I'm able to walk-in when in need of extra help. The doctor/patient relationship is very personal. I'm very comfortable with Dr Wiegel, and he has my trust. The staff who check patients in/out, are also awesome. The doctor, staff, and patients visit – we talk about weekend plans, share pictures/stories of pets, kids, weddings, etc. – life in general. Going to Dynamic Care is like visiting old friends."
