Medical Therapy Q&A

What medical therapy helps promote wellness and weight loss?


Medical therapy encompasses a multidisciplinary approach to helping you achieve optimal wellness and a healthy weight. The KairWell Weight and Wellness team offers nutrition counseling, so you better understand the types and amounts of foods that support good health. 

The providers also help you create a plan to increase daily physical activity. 

You’ll learn how to plan and record your wellness journey and how to enlist social support of family and friends. 

If behavior modifications and nutritional counseling aren’t enough to help you achieve your weight-loss goals, the team may offer weight-loss medications and, possibly, surgery if appropriate. 

All steps in your weight loss and wellness journey are done under the supervision of a healthcare professional who also monitors for any adverse symptoms or issues that may arise.

What is phentermine?

Phentermine is a medication that can suppress your appetite. The providers at KairWell Weight and Wellness may prescribe it if conventional diet and exercise fail to help you reach your weight-loss goals. 

The medication is typically used when you need to lose weight to take control of serious health complications associated with being overweight – including high blood pressure or type 2 diabetes.

Phentermine should only be taken as prescribed. The team monitors you closely while you are on the medication because it can lead to restlessness, dizziness, upset stomach, and headaches. 

What is weight-loss surgery?

Weight-loss, or bariatric, surgery may be recommended for patients who are extremely overweight or obese and have comorbidities, like heart disease or type 2 diabetes, that are exacerbated by their weight. 

Usually, the team at KairWell Weight and Wellness want you to try to lose weight using nonsurgical methods – like exercise, diet, and medication therapy – before trying invasive procedures. Surgery is not used as a first course in weight loss. 

Weight loss surgery is not an easy solution for obesity. You’ll still need to commit to a healthier way of eating and exercise for the long-term. The team at KairWell Weight and Wellness can help you make these behavior changes.
