Managing weight is an important part of maintaining a healthy, active lifestyle. On average, patients may try five or more diet programs in an effort to manage their weight with varying results. Obesity is a growing problem throughout the country and can contribute to a variety of health problems. When nutrition and exercise are not yielding the desired weight loss results, patients may find there are numerous factors that can affect weight loss or gain, including hormonal issues.
Wells Pharmacy Network recognizes the importance of supporting patients and physicians in improving overall health, and uses superior science and technology to offer a wide range of weight management solutions.
Wells Pharmacy Network provides many treatment options for individuals focused on losing and managing their weight. Our pharmacists can compound a variety of preparations to help you achieve and maintain your weight loss goals. Being chronically overweight or obese is a major health risk, and can lead to many health problems including heart disease, hypertension, and diabetes. After you consult with a physician, they can prescribe customized medications that, when used in conjunction with a nutrition and exercise plan, can help you reach your weight loss goals.
These are some examples of weight loss solutions that Wells Pharmacy Network can provide:
The most effective weight loss programs include medical supervision, diet, exercise, and motivation! However, most people need some help beyond maintaining a healthy diet and regular exercise to achieve and maintain weight loss. That is why many turn to compounded weight loss medications, because diet and exercise alone might not result in fast or long-term weight loss.
Compounded weight loss medication can be combined with lifestyle changes to make them MORE effective. When used as directed, weight loss supplements are safe for both men and women.
Some of the benefits of compounded weight-loss medications include:
Appetite suppression can make it easier to maintain a diet, especially a reduced-calorie diet. Prescribed supplements can help the body use and burn the foods you take in more quickly, boosting your metabolism
After conferring with a physician, many patients discover their body just does not tolerate certain ingredients. A compounding pharmacist can remove things such as gluten, sugar, dyes, and other ingredients the body has issues with, and create medications with custom dosages and a treatment plan to treat individual struggles.
Despite doing “all the right things,” like exercising and eating a healthy diet, many people still have a hard time losing weight. In many cases, it’s because of thyroid or adrenal hormone deficiencies. When the thyroid and adrenal glands are not working properly, you gain weight, – by storing carbohydrates in the body instead of expelling them – and because you willingness and ability to “work off” weight is diminished. Compounded hormone therapies can support optimal thyroid and adrenal function, leading to patients feeling more energetic and being able to better manage their weight. Once these hormone levels are properly balanced and under control, patients experience a noticeable improvement in how they feel.
Your doctor may consider weight-loss medication(s) for you if diet modifications and an exercise regimen have not worked and you meet one of these requirements:
Before prescribing a medication(s) for you, your physician will consider any health challenges and your medical history.
Studies have shown that weight loss medications approved for long-term use, – more than 12 weeks – produce a higher weight loss compared with a placebo. A combination of weight-loss medication AND lifestyle changes results in greater weight loss than lifestyle changes do alone.
It is important to understand that weight-loss medications are not “magic potions,” to be used as the sole method of trying to lose weight. Taken alone, they more than likely will not impact weight loss to a high degree. However, when taken in conjunction with an individual using other healthy habits, they can boost your efforts and help you reach your weight loss goals. Here are some additional protocols to incorporate into your weight loss plan:
As mentioned above, there are plenty of weight loss program options. ‘Brand” names programs/diets. Supplements. Nutritionists. Gyms. Boot camps. All can help to some degree, if implemented properly, and as long as the individual trying to lose weight makes whatever options he/she uses a priority. Losing weight is tough, and the process to do it is challenging. But, at the end of the day, the most important prerequisite to weight loss is one that the majority of people spend little time considering: understanding the functioning of your body.
What works for one person may not work for another. Simple body chemistry is the reason. There is no question that factors such as thyroid function, adrenal function, and insulin levels play a MAJOR role in an individual’s ability to manage their weight. Unfortunately, this is usually due to a lack of in-depth knowledge. Gaining control of these three factors with the help of a physician and compounding pharmacist can, -in many cases – provide a straightforward solution.
1.Restoring Insulin Levels – Generally, insulin levels are associated with diabetes, caused when the pancreas is unable to produce the amount of insulin needed to control blood sugar. Improper insulin regulation harms the body’s metabolism, which severely limits the body’s ability to lose weight in a healthy manner.
Solution: The compounding pharmacist will develop a medication(s) that help to restore a proper insulin level. Blood sugar can then be regulated correctly, thereby enhancing your metabolism.
2.Maintaining Thyroid Levels – The secretion of Thyroid hormone in low amounts results not only in weight gain, but a host of other health issues including depression, fatigue, muscle/joint soreness, and constipation. These are all negative effects brought on by Hypothyroidism, which can also lead to mental fatigue, and can pose a major threat to weight loss.
Solution: The introduction of natural thyroid hormones to the body will enable it to “believe” that it is producing the required amount of hormones which are essential in helping to boost the metabolism. This kind of result is difficult to be achieved with the use of synthetic thyroid hormone therapy.
3.Restoration of Adrenal Gland Function – Usually occurring in middle-aged individuals, adrenal dysfunction is a major cause of weight gain in many people. The Adrenal glands help the body convert fats and carbohydrates into energy. However, a disorder named Adrenal Fatigue halts that conversion, and can cause obesity, the onset of allergies, and autoimmune disorders.
Solution: Compounding pharmacists create natural adrenal hormones that allow the adrenal glands to naturally restore proper function over a period of time that varies from patient-patient. This will enable body mechanisms to correct themselves, and allow fats and carbohydrates to create the energy needed to aid the weight loss process.
