Weight Loss Q & A

How does weight affect my health?

Keeping a healthy weight is one of your best preventive measures to control health problems including heart disease, high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, and even some cancers. If you are having trouble with weight loss, and it is causing you serious health problems, Dr. Eckert can suggest a variety of options to manage your weight.

How do I know which options are best?

Before deciding on the best measure for you, Dr. Eckert and his staff might give you additional tests to see what is slowing your weight loss journey. Some of the tests that are performed include:

  • Thyroid panel, to evaluate the function of the thyroid and/or help diagnose hypothyroidism
  • Comprehensive metabolic panel, or CMP, a blood test that measures your blood sugar (glucose) level, electrolyte and fluid balance, kidney function, and liver function
  • Lipid panel, which measures total cholesterol, triglyceride levels, and HDL “good cholesterol” and LDL “bad cholesterol” levels
  • Body mass index, or BMI, to determine whether you are in a healthy range.
  • Body composition scale and bioelectric impedance analysis, or BIA

What does Hormone Health’s weight loss program entail?

Our weight loss programs are highly-individualized, focusing on clean eating, healthy digestion, lifestyle adjustments, and supplements to aid in weight loss and stress management. Before deciding on your specific plan, Dr. Eckert evaluates your health, medical history, and lifestyle. Your program isn’t just about losing weight though, at Hormone Health we are dedicated to providing tools and support that enable you to maintain your weight loss. We focus on a clean diet that eliminates high fructose corn syrup, high sugar foods, preservatives, and Olestra. We also incorporate probiotics, which aid in digestion, polyphenols which are abundant micronutrients, and topical HCG to lower high insulin levels and reduce the storage of fat.  

Moreover, our team is always here to answer your questions and help you achieve and maintain a healthy weight.
