Medical Weight Loss Q&A

Why is medical weight loss effective?

Medical weight loss is the most effective way to lose weight. It isn’t a singular approach: Instead, medical weight loss uses a holistic collection of treatments and recommendations to help you reduce your body fat. 

An individualized medical weight loss program doesn’t just help you lose weight — it also prevents or improves multiple medical conditions associated with obesity and being overweight, including:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High cholesterol
  • Hypertension
  • Heart disease
  • High triglycerides

At STL Medical Weight Loss, Dr. Moleski develops an individualized weight loss plan for you that includes self-guided education on health and wellness, nutrition and diet recommendations based on lab test results, and appropriate recommendations for exercise and stress management. 

How do medical weight loss injections work?

STL Medical Weight Loss specializes in medical weight loss services with the assistance of weight loss injectable medications: semaglutide and tirzepatide. Both of these prescriptions stimulate your pancreas to produce more of a hormone called insulin, which facilitates the transfer of sugar from your blood into your cells, which use it as energy. 

These weight loss medications can make weight loss easier by reducing your appetite and slowing down your rate of digestion. They can also both treat insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. 

When you use weight loss injections within your comprehensive weight management plan, you can expect most of your weight loss to happen in the first 90 days of treatment. You can lose about 15-25% of your body weight in total. Dr. Moleski compounds these medications with vitamin B supplements, which reduce your risk of experiencing side effects. 

What happens during my medical weight loss consultation?

Before you take part in a personalized weight loss program with Dr. Moleski’s assistance, you start with an initial free medical consultation. Before your remote telehealth appointment, you fill out a detailed health questionnaire. Dr. Moleski reviews your responses to ensure you’re a good candidate for safe and effective medical weight loss. 

During your free medical consultation, Dr. Moleski talks to you personally. With telehealth, you don’t have to attend your appointments in person. Instead, you may log in from anywhere using your phone, tablet, or computer. Dr. Moleski curates your individualized care plan using the information from your questionnaire and personal discussion.
