What Is Online Medical Weight Loss Management?

Online medical weight loss services involve comprehensive guidance for people trying to lose weight. You can achieve your weight loss goals and have ongoing supervision and support via video consultations.

Start With a Weight Loss Assessment

You will be asked to fill out a weight loss assessment form. It covers your weight loss goals, preferences, and experience.
You will be asked about allergies, medicines and supplements you take, and the details of your weight loss history. If medications are considered, you’ll also be informed about contraindications and possible side effects.
You might be recommended to take extra tests to understand if there are physical issues related to weight fluctuations (such as thyroid disorder, cardiovascular disease, kidney problems, and some other conditions).
Body mass index calculation is one of the standard steps. BMI is determined based on your height and weight. It helps measure overweight and analyze the risk for weight-related conditions.
You will be asked about your diet, routines, and habits to help the doctor develop a weight loss plan for you. Whether you get weight loss medication prescribed or not, a healthy diet and physical activity are recommended.

Stress, insomnia, and depression may cause weight gain and should be treated along with the weight loss process. Eating disorders must be ruled out too, as they require different treatments.

Weight Loss Calculator (BMI)

Your BMI Is:
A BMI of less than 18.5 indicates being underweight. It may be caused by malnutrition, an eating disorder, or another health issue.
People who have a BMI from 18.5 to 25 are considered to have a normal and healthy weight.
Earlier defined as “overweight”. A BMI in this range poses a risk of developing obesity.
People with a BMI of 30 to 34.9 are considered to have mild obesity (class I) and abnormal accumulation of fat that can pose various health risks.
A BMI of 35 to 39.9 indicates moderate obesity (class II), which is detrimental to one’s health and can lead to high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and heart problems.
People with a BMI of 40 and higher are considered to have morbid or severe obesity (class III), which significantly increases the risk of developing obesity-related diseases.

How Do Prescription Weight Loss Medications Work?

Medications for weight loss belong to different drug classes and have different mechanisms of action, such as:
  • Lowering hunger, which helps to consume fewer calories.
  • Boosting metabolism, which may result in a faster rate of calorie burning.
  • Preventing the body from absorbing dietary lipids, which lowers calorie intake.

The Use of GLP-1 Agonists for Weight Loss

Some medications for type 2 diabetes appeared to be effective for weight loss. One such category is glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists:

  • Ozempic
  • Wegovy
  • Rybelsus
  • Mounjaro
  • Saxenda
  • Metformin

These and other medications in this class help regulate appetite and glucose metabolism, improve metabolism, decrease the time needed for stomach emptying, and more. Some GLP-1 medications are FDA-approved as a part of weight management plans, and others may be prescribed off-label. Note that all of them have specific contraindications and potential side effects, so the choice is made after a detailed health assessment.

If your weight loss plan was created by a qualified medical professional who assessed your symptoms, health history, and preferences, it should be safe. Still, weight loss pills may cause side effects in any patient. You should precisely stick to the recommendations set by your doctor to avoid or reduce such adverse effects and always discuss your concerns with a clinician to get timely help. Neither make your diet stricter without approval nor increase your activity level suddenly to prevent the development of eating disorders or physical issues.

Sudden weight loss can be a consequence of physical ailments. To identify the most probable cause, these tests can be recommended:

  • A complete blood count
  • Thyroid panel
  • Kidney and liver function tests
  • Electrolyte panel
  • Inflammation tests
  • Blood sugar test

Weight fluctuations can also be caused by mental health problems. At MEDvidi, you can be assessed for depression, anxiety, stress, and other conditions.

You can calculate your normal weight using one of the most common weight loss diagnostic tests—BMI calculation (body mass index). Normally, a BMI of 18.5 to 24.9 is considered healthy. Nevertheless, normal weight should be determined individually, considering not just one’s height but also several other factors, including age, fat and muscle mass in the body, and health specifics.

For adults, a BMI between 18.5 and 24.9 is considered to indicate a normal or healthy weight. A BMI of less than 18.5 means underweight, while a BMI of 25.0 to 29.9 means overweight. A BMI of 30.0 and higher is in the obese range.

Online weight loss doctors can offer guidance based on a detailed health assessment. You can also receive medication prescriptions online if deemed appropriate in your case. Note that weight loss medication should be supplemented with a balanced diet, exercise, and other beneficial routines and activities to increase the chances for stable results.

Weight loss programs at MEDvidi are offered through telemedicine and are based on the medical knowledge of our healthcare team. Our weight management plans include online assessments, prescription management, and continual monitoring. Success in weight loss, however, is dependent on each person’s unique circumstances, health features, and willingness to make long-term lifestyle changes.
People may gain weight again for different reasons. Some may resume their unhealthy habits, others experience side effects or ineffective weight loss management approaches. A balanced diet and exercising regularly are necessary for long-term weight loss and maintaining results. However, it’s important to keep in touch with your clinician to monitor your dynamics and adjust the plan as needed.
MEDvidi doesn’t have a one-size-fits-all program—we create weight loss plans for each client individually. Anyone who wants to receive weight loss help online can use our services by simply signing up on the platform and scheduling an online video appointment.

The 30-30-30 rule is a new trend related to morning routines. According to it, a person should have 30g of protein for breakfast not later than 30 minutes after waking up and then have 30 minutes of low-intensity physical activity.

A breakfast rich in protein can help regulate blood sugar during the day and contribute to healthier food choices. However, note that 30-30-30 is only one element of a healthy lifestyle and it may not be suitable for everyone. If you want to receive professional health for weight loss and personalized recommendations, contact MEDvidi today to have a weight loss appointment online.

Medical providers who are qualified to prescribe Schedule IV substances can prescribe phentermine for obesity treatment online. Contact MEDvidi to get connected with a clinician who can choose a suitable treatment and prescribe phentermine or another medication if necessary.

The effectiveness of over-the-counter diet pills can vary from one person to another. It is recommended to consult with a healthcare professional before starting any weight loss supplement to make sure you avoid serious interactions or side effects. You can also discuss taking prescription weight loss medicine online.
Physicians, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants can prescribe medication for weight loss. They will assess your medical history, current medications, and overall health before prescribing any weight loss medicine.
You can see a registered dietitian, nutritionist, or healthcare professional with expertise in online weight management. It may also be helpful to consult with your primary care physician to assess any underlying health concerns. Note that a holistic approach, considering both physical and mental aspects, is crucial for sustainable weight loss, so counseling or talk therapy may be a part of your weight management plan.

Currently, MEDvidi doesn’t accept insurance. We work on collaborating with insurance providers and we’ll notify our patients once this option becomes available. Feel free to contact our Care Team at (504) 414-5095 or for more information.

Weight loss medications have different mechanisms of action, side effects, and other factors and must be chosen individually. The same medication can work differently for different patients. Your doctor will examine your health history and the medication’s contraindications and interactions before prescribing you weight loss meds.
To receive a weight loss prescription* one has to be diagnosed with obesity or as overweight by a certified healthcare provider. Having a BMI higher than 30 (or higher than 27 and having related conditions) is a common requirement. The choice of weight loss interventions is also based on the evaluation of your health history.
Whether weight loss medications are the best way to lose weight depends on various factors, including your overall health and medical history. Weight loss medications can be effective for some individuals, but they are not suitable or necessary for everyone.
A number of factors, including your weight, adherence to the recommended regimen, and personal response to the medicine, might affect how long it takes to lose weight with weight-loss medication. It’s critical to maintain reasonable expectations and recognize that losing weight is a gradual process.
The period of taking weight loss meds depends on a particular medication. While some weight loss drugs are meant to be taken temporarily, others can be taken for extended periods. Your progress, current health, and any potential side effects will all be taken into account when determining the right duration of treatment.
Consult your healthcare provider to ascertain whether weight-loss medication is the best option for you. Your medical history, present health condition, weight loss objectives, and the potential dangers and advantages of the medicine will all be considered. They might take into account things like BMI, obesity-related health issues, and prior weight loss attempts.
To buy weight loss pills online, you need to have a valid prescription from a healthcare provider.
