How Instant Urgent Care helps with weight management
Weight management is just one of the preventative care services available at Instant Urgent Care for patients of all ages. Clinical teams of physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants help to build a weight management plan using the following techniques:
Nutritional guidance: Patients can receive new meal plans and nutritional guidance to help accelerate their weight loss. Nutritional intervention can help teach patients how to manage their food intake, develop healthy eating habits, and learn how to maintain healthy diet
Medication treatment and referrals: For some patients, clinical weight loss requires new medications to help accelerate weight loss or address a medical barrier to weight loss. Additionally, our team will refer patients to physical specialists that can help incorporate new exercise routines and procedures needed to help lose weight.
