Lab Testing for Successful Weight Loss

Weight gain is often associated with insulin resistance. All patients with weight concerns should be screened for diabetes. Patients with these findings are at relatively high risk for the future development of diabetes. A laboratory work up will help us to see if you are suffering from insulin resistance, pre-diabetes, or if you are experiencing low hormonal balance.

Lab Work Up Includes:

Treatment Options

Treatment of obesity starts with comprehensive lifestyle management (ie, diet, physical activity, behavior modification), which should include the following:

  1. Oral Supplements

Along with diet and exercise, oral supplements may be used to help treat insulin resistance and food cravings.

Blood Sugar Support Supplement
  • Provides Key Nutrients for Blood Sugar Regulation
  • Helps Maintain Healthy Blood Sugar Levels Already Within the Normal Range
  • Supports Normal Cellular Metabolism
Crave Ease Supplement
  • Aids in Supporting Optimal Weight and Reducing Cravings
  • Multidimensional Support for Optimal Blood Pressure Levels
  • Helps Enhance Metabolic Activity and Efficiency
  • Supports Healthy Cardiometabolic Function

  1. Once-Weekly Injection Weight Loss Program

A glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1 agonist) medication like Semaglutide, known as Ozempic/Wegovy, and Tirzepatide, known as Mounjaro/Zepbound, can help people with obesity to lose weight by treating underlying insulin resistance.

These are the newest drugs used for weight management, which improve insulin sensitivity and target hormones in the gut and brain to reduce appetite. The self-administered weekly injections have been used to treat Type 2 diabetes for over a decade.

Benefits include:
  • Decreased appetite and food cravings
  • Slowed gastric emptying so you feel full longer
  • Lowers blood sugar
  • Lowers blood pressure
  • Weight loss of 15-20%

The dosage is increased slowly to mitigate side effects, therefore weight loss can take up to 1-2 months depending on the individual.  However, a reasonable goal for weight loss in the setting of a medical treatment program is approximately 1-2 lb/week.

Some individuals may need to stay on a maintenance dose to maintain the level of desired weight loss. Others may be able to switch to the oral supplements as outlined above. 

  1. Laser Body Contouring with Sculpt

Laser Body contouring, or body sculpting, can eliminate fat, shape distinct areas of the body and tighten skin. This technique uses heat to destroy the fat cells eliminating these fat cells for good.  At the same time, the heat aids to tighten the collagen in the area of treatment. 

At Lasting SkinSolutions, we use Sentient Sculpt to diminish local areas of fat, resulting in thinner, more toned skin. This treatment is best for obtaining mild improvements in a discrete area of focus.

  1. BeautiFill

All-in-one laser liposuction & body contouring

BeautiFill, is an in-office medical procedure that aims to reshape an area of the body. It may involve procedures to:

  • Eliminate excess fat.
  • Reshape or contour the area.

Body Sculpting does not usually help you lose weight. Instead, it helps shape the body and address specific areas where weight loss isn’t effective.

Common areas of focus for body sculpting are the stomach, neck and arms.
