For many people, losing weight isn’t easy. If it was, then approximately 40% of the U.S. population wouldn’t be overweight. The fact is we all need a little help sometimes, which is exactly why we’re offering medically supervised weight loss management in Knoxville at Culture Aesthetic & Wellness. Our goal for this service is to help our clients improve their health and quality of life by pinpointing any underlying causes for weight gain and developing a plan to address them. So, if you want to lose weight and live a healthier lifestyle in general, then Culture is the place to start!
How does weight loss management at Culture Aesthetics & Wellness work?
To effectively tackle weight loss, you must first get to the root of the issue. That’s where Anya Zerilla, NP, WHNP-BC, steps in. As our resident wellness expert and weight loss guru, Anya will run blood work to determine if there are any underlying issues with the thyroid, hormones, or other unknown reasons that may be contributing to weight gain. If any deficiencies are discovered, then Anya will work with you to map out a hormone replacement plan to alleviate the issue and put you on a path to more successful weight loss. We’re also offering semaglutide injections, which are FDA approved to aid in weight loss by mimicking a natural hormone that regulates appetite and food intake in the brain.
How does hormone replacement therapy help with weight loss?
Ever wonder why some people seem to maintain a healthy weight and still eat whatever they want and not exercise, while others do all the right things but still struggle to lose weight? The answer is most often due to hormones. A hormonal imbalance can absolutely affect the way your body regulates your weight. That’s often why people find it much more difficult to lose weight and keep it off as they get older. The good news is we can help you restore your ability to lose weight by replenishing the hormones you’ve lost over the years.
Which hormones contribute to weight loss?
There’s no one magic hormone bullet that tackles weight loss. There are several that can play a factor in regulating your weight. These include:
- Glucagon-like peptide-1
- Human Growth Hormone
- Peptide YY
As you can see, there’s quite a lot involved when it comes to how hormones can regulate your weight. This may seem a little overwhelming, but through simple blood work at Culture we can reveal if a deficiency in any of these hormones (or others) may be to blame for your clothes feeling tighter.
Will I still need to diet and exercise with hormone replacement therapy?
While replenishing the ideal amounts of these hormones through hormone replacement therapy will help you get back on track with weight loss, you’ll still need to do your part with a proper diet and regular physical activity. But you’ll likely notice it’s much easier to lose weight when your hormones are back in balance. We’ll discuss all the details at your weight loss consultation so you’ll have a clear understanding of what to expect.
