Weight Management

When you think about losing weight or weight management you may not consider turning to your gynecologist for help, but maybe it’s time you did. We find that many patients are truly stumped as to why they are suddenly gaining weight. Fad diets and social media misinformation certainly don’t help. You want a doctor that can provide you with safe, effective ways to lose weight that work for you, whether you’re dealing with hormone-related weight issues or you’re having troubling losing weight post-pregnancy. Our Brownsville, TX, OBGYN Dr. J. Guajardo can help women lose weight through proven medical solutions.

Medical Weight Loss

Some women may find that they can lose weight by simply eating right and working out, but, often, it isn’t this simple. Losing weight involves a variety of factors that we have to take into consideration. For example, hormonal imbalances can play a major role in sudden weight gain and difficulty losing weight. By turning to our OBGYN, Dr. Guajardo, we can provide you with a medical weight loss strategy that is safe and effective and targets the root cause of your weight gain. No fad diets, no yo-yoing, and no pills. Results won’t happen overnight, but our medical team can provide you with long-term solutions that really work.

Turning to Our OBGYN for Weight Loss

As we mentioned above, hormones play a major role in a woman’s ability or inability to lose weight and maintain a healthy weight. In this case, no amount of exercising or eating right is going to cut it. Of course, how are you supposed to know this? We can recognize the warning signs of hormonal imbalances or thyroid dysfunction, which are common reasons women have trouble losing weight or maintaining a healthy body mass index (BMI). By providing patients with the proper thyroid medication or hormonal replacement therapy, we can help to balance hormones and improve thyroid dysfunction to make losing weight easier. We also provide support, personalized recommendations, and regular monitoring, which helps women stay on track when it comes to their weight loss goals.
