For many people, carrying extra weight can come with increased risk of other diseases. At SOGA CMWL, our providers recognize that obesity is a medical issue. Just like treating high blood pressure or diabetes, there are times when the use of prescription medication is medically indicated. Medication can be another tool in helping patients achieve and maintain weight loss. Currently there are 8 medications that are FDA approved for weight loss and even more medications that trained health providers can use in certain cases to assist patients.
We realize that medication is only part of the solution and help all our patients find healthy lifestyle choices that will let them be successful in the long term.
