Medical Supervise Weight Loss Program

Phentermine (Adipex-P, Lomaira) is an amphetamine-like prescription medication used to suppress appetite. It can help weight loss by decreasing your hunger or making you feel full longer. Like other prescription weight-loss drugs, phentermine is intended to be used as part of an overall weight-loss plan. It is indicated for people who are obese, and who have failed to lose enough weight with diet and exercise alone — not for people who want to lose just a few pounds.

Here at NPOD we will assess and assist you on your journey to losing weight. Nurse Practitioner McFarlane is currently in the process of losing weight herself. Losing weight as a team will provide you with the support you need. Just knowing that you are not alone can help propel you towards your weight loss goal. We understand the importance of education and a combination of wellness, nutrition, and weight loss pills can ensure the best outcome for your weight loss journey. Not only do we work toward maximizing your long-term weight loss success and health care goals, but we strive to help improve your quality of life and support you in living your best, healthy life.

***Although phentermine is one of the most commonly prescribed weight-loss medications, it isn’t a good option if you have heart disease, high blood pressure, an overactive thyroid gland, or glaucoma.  Also, phentermine isn’t for women who are pregnant, may become pregnant, or are breastfeeding. Therefore, we have added additional medications to our program to help a wider array of patients.

 

Semaglutide  Program 

Semaglutide is a Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) produced by the gut. It increases insulin production, a hormone that lowers the blood sugar level while inhibiting glucagon secretion, which is a hormone that raises blood sugar, and reduces appetite and energy intake while delaying gastric emptying. It was first developed in 2012 as a longer-acting option for Liraglutide. In 2017 this drug was approved as an anti-diabetic medication used to treat type 2 diabetes and obesity. In June 2021, it got approved for chronic weight management in obese individuals with a (BMI) ≥ 30 kg/m2) or overweight (initial BMI ≥ 27 kg/m2) with at least one weight-related comorbidity.

  • MICC and L-Carnitine AKA (Lipotropic B12) $35 – MICC is an acronym for the compounds: L-Methionine, Inositol, Choline and Cyanocobalamin. These are lipotropic agents which help with the breakdown of fat during metabolism in the body. Often referred to as “fat burning” injections, these components, especially inositol and choline, have been found to improve mental function and feelings of depression.

Methionine: is one of nine essential amino acids in humans (provided by food), Methionine is required for growth and tissue repair. A sulfur-containing amino acid, methionine improves the tone and pliability of skin, hair, and strengthens nails. Involved in many detoxifying processes, sulfur provided by methionine protects cells from pollutants, slows cell aging, and is essential for absorption and bioavailability of selenium and zinc. Methionine chelates heavy metals, such as lead and mercury, aiding their excretion. It also acts as a lipotropic agent and prevents excess fat buildup in the liver. As SAMe (S-adenysylmethionine), methionine has been considered an antidepressant.

Inositol: is a small molecule with structural similarity to glucose. It is a vitamin-like compound (pseudovitamin) that is sometimes said to belong to the class of Bcomplex vitamins and it is involved in cellular signalling and as a component of cell membranes.

Choline: is important as a precursor of acetylcholine, as a methyl donor in various metabolic processes, and in lipid metabolism and prevents excessive fat build up in the liver.

Cyanocobalamin: Vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) is necessary for hematopoiesis, neural metabolism, DNA and RNA production, carbohydrate, fat and protein metabolism. B12 improves iron functions in the metabolic cycle and assists folic acid in choline synthesis.

L-Carnitine– Carnitine is a substance that helps the body turn fat into energy. Your body makes it in the liver and kidneys and stores it in the skeletal muscles, heart, brain, and sperm.
