Monarch Medical Weight Loss Centers offer sophisticated program enhancements in the treatment of obesity and for the general health, education, and monitoring of our patients.
For qualifying patients, FDA-approved prescription appetite suppressants are available to aid weight loss. Recent clinical studies have shown that using appetite suppressant medications in combination with a medically derived nutrition plan can lead to significantly more weight loss than either medication or diet alone. To be a candidate for these medications patients must meet certain requirements. It is important to understand that appetite suppressant medications alone are not a cure for obesity.
Lipotropic Vitamin Injections
Prepared at our clinic to ensure the highest quality and potency, our lipotropic injections deliver a precise formulation of lipotropic amino acids and prescription grade B vitamins. Many patients report improved energy and enhanced weight loss with regularly scheduled injections.
Resting Metabolic Rate Measurement
Using an advanced FDA-approved device, our staff can precisely measure a patient's resting metabolic rate (RMR). RMR is the rate at which your body burns energy while at rest. Monarch recommends an RMR measurement during the weight loss phase and again when the patient begins Monarch Maintenance. A brief lifestyle questionnaire will be used to precisely define a total calorie budget used to develop nutrition strategies for weight loss and/or weight maintenance.
For patients who desire non-prescription medications, Monarch offers a number of nutritional supplements to enhance both weight loss and the general health of our patients. Included are a natural appetite suppressant, as well as other vitamin and nutritional aids.
Full Lipid Panel and Glucose Testing
Monarch offers affordable, on-site full lipid and glucose testing to help you track these very important indicators of your cardiovascular health and risk of developing diabetes. Being overweight or obese often increases your "bad cholesterol" and triglycerides, can also lower your "good cholesterol" (or HDLs), and increases insulin resistance, resulting in elevated blood glucose.
