MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS
INDIVIDUALIZED WEIGHT LOSS PROGRAM
Our comprehensive Medical Weight Loss Program is physician-supervised and is customized to fit your individual needs. Lifestyle modifications will be discussed and you are encouraged to be consistent with them. An appetite suppressant may also be prescribed if you are considered to be of stable health. It is also recommended that you stop by for weekly Lipo B-12 injections which help boost metabolism and energy while burning fat. Consideration of our medical wellness program may assist in reaching your goals.
B12 & LIP) B-12 INJECTIONS
WHAS IS LIPO B 12 USED FOR?
Lipotropic injections are used to help release fat deposits in some parts of the body. Injections can be administered weekly. The amino acids that are injected into the body stimulate the liver into optimizing the process of metabolism. These injections boost the metabolic power of the body. The injections are only effective temporarily. As soon as the effect of these substances wears out, the body starts returning to normal gradually. Lipo B contains substances like B12, levocarnitine, methionine, inositol, choline, vitamin B 6, and dexpanthenol.
WHAT ARE SOME POSSIBLE SIDE EFFECTS OF THIS MEDICINE?
Potential side effects include stomach upset and urinary problems due to the strain the injections place on the kidneys. Depression is another possible side effect. Some patients are unable to control their urine, and/or have diarrhea. Finally, some patients reported an unpleasant odor. Lipotropic injections change the function of the digestive system temporarily. This can result in extreme exhaustion, since the body is not used to working at this level and condition. Unexplained pain in unrelated parts of the body is another potential side effect. Patients have complained of pain in the neck and parts of the hand. How these injections cause these pains is not clear. Some patients have also experienced joint pains and allergic reactions to the injections. Call your healthcare provider immediately if you are experiencing any signs of an allergic reaction: wheezing; chest tightness; fever; itching; bad cough; blue skin color; fits; or swelling of face, lips, tongue, or throat; also if you experience severe behavioral problems, chest pain or pressure or fast heartbeat, severe dizziness or passing out, nervousness and excitability, or severe headache.
B12 is used in the metabolism of fats, proteins and carbohydrates. It is involved in making DNA, necessary in the production of new healthy cells. It is a nutrient that helps keep the body’s nerves and blood cells healthy. B12 lowers homocysteine levels, a protein associated with an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, and dementia. It is often used to give an energy boost, helping to increase activity levels. While B12 is found naturally in a healthy diet, factors like stress and poor eating habits can lead to a deficiency.
