Medical Weight Loss Q&A

Why is weight loss important?

Carrying extra weight is more than a cosmetic concern — it can also affect your health. When you carry extra weight, your body has to work harder to digest, breathe, and move. Excess weight can lead to fatigue, chronic pain, and other uncomfortable symptoms. 

It also increases your risk of chronic diseases, such as Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and hypertension (high blood pressure).

Losing even 5% to 10% of your body mass can significantly improve your health if you’re overweight or obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). Zayda works with you at Radiance Wellness & Aesthetics to create an individualized weight loss plan for you that helps you reach and maintain a healthy weight.

Who should consider medical weight loss?

The ideal weight is different for everyone, but most people with a body mass index (BMI) over 24.9 can benefit from healthy weight loss. Zayda may also recommend medical weight loss if you carry extra weight and also have:

  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Cardiovascular disease
  • Joint pain
  • Low mobility
  • Chronic fatigue
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Sleep apnea

As an experienced nurse practitioner, Zayda can help you achieve a healthy weight without fad diets or unhealthy restrictions.

Why am I struggling with weight loss?

A combination of factors can impact your ability to lose weight, including:

  • Slow metabolism
  • Poor diet
  • Nutritional deficiencies
  • Genetics
  • Hypothyroidism
  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Certain medications
  • Inactivity

At your initial visit, Zayda performs a comprehensive evaluation to determine the best weight loss plan for you. She asks detailed questions about your diet, lifestyle, and health and wellness goals to gather the necessary information. 

Zayda may also recommend a head-to-toe physical exam and blood work to create your personalized medical weight loss plan.

What does a medical weight loss plan include?

At Radiance Wellness & Aesthetics, Zayda uses safe, effective treatments to accelerate your weight loss. She may recommend:

  • Medications (semaglutide, tirzepatide, other peptides)
  • Fat burner injections
  • B12 shots
  • Nutritional supplements
  • Lifestyle changes
  • Nutritional counseling
  • Exercise support
