Understanding the Complex Causes of Obesity

Obesity is a multifaceted health concern with various contributing factors. Identifying these factors is crucial for devising effective strategies to combat and manage weight-related issues. The primary causes of obesity include poor diet, lack of exercise, and hormone imbalances such as low testosterone, menopause, and hypothyroidism. Each of these elements plays a significant role in the intricate web of factors that contribute to excessive weight gain.

Exploring Obesity Medications for Effective Weight Management

For individuals seeking additional support in their weight loss journey, certain medications may be considered. At Ohana Medspas/Hawaii Float Spa with Dr. Candido, we offer several options, including HCG, Semaglutide, and Tirzepatide.

These medications work in various ways to assist in weight management, targeting different aspects of the body's metabolism and appetite regulation.

Balancing the Scale: Are Obesity Medications Safe?

It's natural to have concerns about the safety of obesity medications. 

Generally, most individuals experience common side effects such as nausea, constipation, reflux, and fatigue. 

However, it's crucial to note that Semaglutide and Tirazepatide, though effective, come with a rare risk of pancreatitis or medullary thyroid cancer. Before embarking on any medication, it is advisable to consult with a healthcare professional to determine the most suitable and safe option based on individual health profiles.

Navigating Insurance Coverage for Obesity Medication

Concerns about the financial aspect of obesity medications often arise. It's essential to know that insurance coverage for these medications varies. Semaglutide or Tirazepatide may be covered, especially for individuals with diabetes and an A1c > 6.5. Understanding insurance coverage can significantly impact the accessibility of these medications for those in need.

Exploring Alternatives for Weight Loss

In addition to medications, our clinic offers alternative approaches to weight loss, catering to diverse preferences and needs. These include 
-Lipo Laser

These non-invasive procedures are designed to complement a comprehensive weight loss program, providing individuals with various tools to achieve their goals.

Setting Realistic Expectations: How long does it take to see results?

The journey to weight loss requires patience and commitment. We recommend allowing 4-6 weeks for any weight loss program to observe tangible results.

However, individual outcomes are influenced by factors such as adherence to dietary recommendations, lifestyle changes, and the chosen weight loss approach.

Empowering Through Free Resources

To further empower individuals on their weight loss journey, we provide free resources such as Pinterest recipes and Instagram workout videos. These resources offer inspiration, guidance, and practical tips to support a healthy and active lifestyle.

In conclusion, addressing obesity involves a comprehensive approach that considers 

individual factors
medical interventions
lifestyle changes.
