Medical Weight Loss Q&A

Can medical weight loss help me shed pounds and keep them off?

Yes. Medical weight loss uses nutrition education, exercise guidance, and prescription medication to help you eliminate pesky pockets of fat, achieve your ideal weight, and encourage a healthier lifestyle. 

You don’t need to be extremely overweight to benefit. Partnering with Centeno Health for medical weight loss makes it easy to slim down and feel your best. It can even improve your general well-being by lowering cholesterol levels, reducing the risk of high blood pressure, and keeping your blood sugar in check. 

Who should consider medical weight loss?

Consider medical weight loss at Centeno Health if you’re more than 10 pounds over your ideal weight. That’s particularly true if you have an underlying health problem that’s exacerbated by excess weight, like:

  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol
  • Diabetes
  • Heart disease
  • Kidney disease
  • Liver disease
  • Arthritis
  • Back pain

Medical weight loss can improve your mood and outlook, so it’s worth considering if you have generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) or depression.

What does medical weight loss involve?

Centeno Health offers medical weight loss in person via home visits and through telehealth. Your concierge medicine provider might suggest:


Nutrition education

Losing weight and keeping it off requires you to change your relationship with food. Instead of eating high-calorie meals with starches and saturated fats, you need to focus on balanced nutrition. 

Your Centeno Health provider develops a personalized snack and meal plan that emphasizes fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains. They monitor your progress at regular checkups and make adjustments as needed.


Exercise guidance

The only way to lose weight is to burn more calories than you consume — exercise plays an essential role in the medical weight loss process. 

If you have underlying health problems or mobility issues, working out can be challenging. Centeno Health understands. Instead of recommending one-size-fits-all solutions, you get personalized exercise suggestions that align with your current abilities and physical fitness level. 



If you’re a patient who lives in the Miami area, your Centeno Health provider comes to your home or another location you prefer to give you weight loss injections. Centeno Health offers several types of weight loss injections, including semaglutide (Ozempic®) and lipotropic injections.

Semaglutide is a prescription medication that suppresses your appetite, regulates your blood sugar, and boosts your metabolism. Lipotropic injections help your metabolism break down fat and improve liver function.
