Weight loss boils down to science and research, both of which are major aspects of the Medi-Weightloss® Program. Our providers work hard to make a difference in treating several health conditions associated with obesity. Here are a few of our studies and findings:
- Most recently, as a commitment to better understand and treat Metabolic Syndrome, the Medi-Weightloss® Clinical Research team, led by Macklin Guzman, DHSc, MPH conducted a study on the impact of a physician-supervised nonsurgical weight management program, like Medi-Weightloss®, on the prevalence of MetS and its key indicators. The study, published in the Journal of Public Health, included 479 overweight and obese participants aged 19 years or older. Of those, 52% of participants had MetS at the start of the study. As patients successfully navigated the Medi-Weightloss® Program, the prevalence of MetS decreased by 45%. The study effectively concluded that weight loss is inversely associated with the prevalence of MetS and its key indicators. The most effective way to prevent or even reverse metabolic syndrome is to lose weight, eat healthy, and have a regular exercise plan while on a physician-supervised program such as Medi-Weightloss®.
- In a multi-center, observational study of 533 Medi-Weightloss® patients, researchers found a significant improvement in health indicators after 25-35 pounds of weight loss. These health indicators included glucose, HgA1c, cholesterol, triglycerides, systolic BP, and diastolic BP. Our numbers speak for themselves and indicate that physician-supervised weight loss programs can assist patients in realizing the benefits of losing weight.
- Another important aspect that our researchers analyzed is the link between protein supplementation and weight loss in a physician-supervised program. In this retrospective, cohort study, patients were assessed at one location to determine the effect of our products. From this study, researchers found that patients who regularly purchased our Premium Protein Shakes and 100-Calorie Protein Bars lost two percent more of their body weight.
- Research also suggests there is a link to some of our services including injections. In a retrospective, cross-sectional analysis 477 new patients at one Medi-Weightloss® location were analyzed to determine if there was a link between patients who frequently received midweek injections and weight loss. Researchers found patients who visited their Medi-Weightloss® approximately once per week have been found to lose a greater median percentage of their starting weight than patients who do not.
Ultimately, Medi-Weightloss® is committed to making a difference in each patient’s lives by offering evidence-based services that seek to address and prevent the challenges presented by obesity.
