Personalized MEDICAL Weight-Loss Program
Achieving and maintaining a healthy weight helps you feel energetic and improves your life in many areas. The reasons people gain and carry excess weight are often complex and unique to the individual. You may have put on weight as a result of diet and activity levels, genetics, physiological imbalances, or other factors.
Body by Blink’s concierge McKinney weight loss service is a unique subscription-based program that provides comprehensive and completely individualized support for your medical weight loss journey. Under the supervision of Dr. Todd Gaddis, you will have access to a broad range of therapeutic and medication-supported weight loss services that will be customized to help you safely and effectively reach and maintain your goal weight.
A Holistic Approach
The components of your Body by Blink medical weight-loss program will be determined by analysis of your unique physiological needs. Your program begins with a consultation with Dr. Todd Gaddis, during which you will discuss your goal weight, your medical history, and any previous attempts you have made to lose weight.
Understanding what causes you to gain weight is an important part of this process. For example, do you deal with cravings for sugar? Salt? Midnight snacks? What challenges do you face with weight loss? Once Dr. Gaddis has formed a picture of your unique weight loss goals and challenges, he will customize your treatment regimen. Dr. Gaddis draws on multiple modalities to tailor the most effective approach to helping you lose weight:
Sustainable Medical Weight Loss
Semaglutide, a member of the glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist class, is a medication designed to replicate the action of a naturally occurring hormone in the body responsible for regulating blood sugar levels. It operates by stimulating GLP-1 receptors to increase insulin secretion, control blood sugar levels, and suppress appetite, ultimately aiding in weight management.
The FDA first approved Semaglutide, under the brand name Ozempic, in 2017 for treating Type 2 Diabetes. The medication works in two major ways.
It acts to lower blood sugar and A1C, making it an effective treatment for patients dealing with diabetes. The drug also binds to the GLP-1 receptor, reducing appetite and slowing digestion motility so people feel fuller for longer. Ozempic is a popular version of the Semaglutide medication. Another one that is well known is Wegovy, which can have indications for weight loss for people with obesity or who are overweight with weight-related medical issues. Semaglutide comes in a generic compounded form for those people who don't meet the above criteria. A similar medication, Mounjaro or generic Tiirzepatide, could have an even more profound effect. Initially approved for the treatment of Diabetes like Ozempic in 2022, Clinical trials have shown that by binding to GLP-1 and GIP receptors, tripeptide is capable of producing better weight loss results than its Semaglutide-based counterparts with reduced side effects. More studies will be needed to ascertain whether it benefits patients more than Semaglutide. In 2023, the FDA approved Tirzepatide with the brand Zepbound for weight loss.
Semaglutide offers substantial improvements in quality of life through its ability to regulate blood sugar levels, facilitate weight loss, and enhance cardiovascular health. This medication provides specific benefits to various body areas, such as reducing the risk of cardiovascular events, improving insulin sensitivity for better blood sugar control, and promoting sustainable weight loss. Notably, Semaglutide distinguishes itself by offering a non-surgical approach, presenting a non-invasive alternative to surgical interventions, and allowing for a more gradual and manageable recovery process. Tirzepatide is another medication showing promising weight loss results. Another GLP-1 receptor agonist, Tirzepatide has helped patients with regulating blood sugar levels, facilitating weight loss, and potentially improving cardiovascular health. While Semaglutide primarily targets GLP-1 receptors, Tirzepatide has a unique dual action, mimicking both GLP-1 and GIP hormones. This combined approach enhances feelings of fullness and slows stomach emptying, potentially leading to greater weight loss compared to Semaglutide alone.
To be eligible for Semaglutide or Tirzepatide, individuals with type 2 diabetes or those seeking weight management solutions may find this treatment suitable. It addresses challenges related to blood sugar control and appetite management. However, consideration of contraindications or disqualifications is crucial. Factors such as allergies to the medication or its components, existing health conditions that may interact negatively with Semaglutide or Tirzepatide, and individual health factors, including age, need careful evaluation. Consulting with a healthcare professional is essential to determine eligibility and ensure that the treatment aligns with specific health needs.
