Being overweight raises your risk for a number of health problems, including:
Excess weight during pregnancy may lead to unhealthy blood sugar levels and an increased risk for cesarean delivery (C-section).
When it comes to lasting weight loss, there’s no magic pill. As you probably already know, old cliches such as “just eat less and exercise more,” are ineffective as long-term strategies to lose weight.
Fad diets also don’t work. You may shed extra pounds while on a diet, only to gain the weight back when you resume your usual eating habits.
Successful weight loss is grounded in identifying — and overcoming — the barriers that stand in the way of your ability to control your weight. Dr. Gaskill and her team have identified many of these weight loss barriers, such as:
Dr. Gaskill works with you to understand the barriers that stand in your way. She tailors a treatment plan to rebalance your hormones and increase your overall wellness.
Dr. Gaskill assesses whether you’d benefit from a weight loss program at your initial visit. She reviews your medical history, performs a physical examination, and recommends a comprehensive blood work analysis to determine your proper hormone levels.
Based on your results, Dr. Gaskill creates an individualized weight loss program for you.
Your plan may include:
A hormonal imbalance may slow down your metabolism, increasing your tendency to store fat. Dr. Gaskill rebalances and optimizes your hormone levels via tiny pellets inserted directly under your skin.
The pellets gradually release the hormones you need to lose weight, such as estrogen and testosterone. The hormones are bioidentical, meaning they’re created from plants and molecularly similar to the natural hormones your body makes. The pellets may offer additional health benefits beyond weight loss.
