What happens during medical weight loss visits?

During your first medical weight loss visit, your provider weighs you and checks your pulse, blood pressure, and other vital signs. They review your medical history and ask about medications you take or symptoms you may have.

Your specialist completes a physical examination and may recommend you undergo urine tests, blood tests, or other diagnostic tests to detect or rule out underlying problems like thyroid disorders and hormone imbalance. 

They personalize a weight loss plan based on your initial body weight, goal weight, health, and lifestyle. You might:
