Weight Loss Program
“Issues surrounding weight are like many other medical problems; much more successfully treated and less complicated if medical assessment and intervention is sought early” – Dr Elizabeth “Libby” Rowe, GP at Airlie Women's Clinic
MEDICALLY MANAGED WEIGHT LOSS
Nobody knows your health history better than your GP, nor is there anyone more qualified to help you take control of your weight. Your doctor can offer clinically proven ways to shed those extra kilos. Unlike gimmicky diets, your individualised weight loss program will be based on scientific evidence, making it easier to reach and maintain a healthy weight.
The Airlie Women’s Clinic Weight Loss Program enables you to break the cycle and develop a long term healthy lifestyle. Our weight management consultations are designed for those patients who are interested in weight loss or simply looking to adopt a healthier lifestyle. Using sophisticated Body Composition Scales we gauge our patients’ body fat percentage, muscle mass, bone mass (particularly important for post-menopausal women), visceral fat, Body Mass Index (BMI) and overall weight. Your doctor will prepare an individually tailored plan for you that will be closely monitored throughout the course of the treatment.
Dropping even a small amount of weight can reduce your risk of heart attack, cancer, stroke, dementia and many more diseases. A medically managed weight management program is a holistic approach that will look at all aspects of your wellbeing. Doctors are familiar with all the strategies including dealing with the underlying cause. Just think, taking that first step onto the doctor’s scales may be the beginning of your weight loss journey.
