When you have the blood work we need, you can then schedule an appointment with. Dr. Bowman. During this initial appointment, Dr. Bowman will review your blood work and your past medical history. This is to ensure you are healthy enough to pursue our medical weight loss program. After the physician has determied you are a good candidate for medical weight loss, he will decide which supplement best fits your needs and lifestyle.
Medical Weight Loss Supplements
Our medical center offers two different weight loss supplements; Phentermine and Phendimetrazine.
Phentermine: A stimulant similar to amphetamine. It acts as an appetite suppressant, affecting the central nervous system. Phentermine is used together with diet and excersise, to treat obesity in overweight people, with risk factors such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or diabetes.
Phendimetrazine: Similar to amphetamine as well. This supplement stimulates the central nervous system (nerves and brain), which increases your heart rate and blood pressure and descreases your appetite. This is a short-term use supplement, along with diet and excersise, in the treatment of obesity.
At our office we do provide B12/MIC injections by our Medical Doctor or Medical Assistant. The B12/MIC injection consists of Cobalamin and Methionine Inositol Choline.
How does the injection help?
B12: Helps your body use fat and carbs for energy. It also keeps your nerves and red blood cells healthy.
MIC: An essential amino acid that helps breakdown fats within the liver. It also helps lower cholestrol and prevent excess fat build up in the liver and throughout the bodys circulatory system.
