thin centers m.d. medical weight loss program
First and foremost, we are a medically supervised program. This means that as a part supervising your weight loss efforts, our physicians can evaluate and treat any hormone imbalances or metabolic conditions that may have contributed to your weight gain or inability to lose weight. Our physicians and staff are trained to evaluate and treat these conditions.
Our diets are based on the principal of low glycemic index and designed around your lifestyle.
Our diets have been shown to benefit patients with diabetes, hypertension, fatty liver, and hypercholesterolemia. In a recent pilot study of over 200 patients, we have shown dramatic reductions in total Cholesterol, LDL (bad cholesterol), and Triglycerides. In addition, patient’s saw improvement in there blood pressures during the study.
Our Diets can be classified as low glycemic. This means they are low in simple sugars. Simple sugars, after they are ingested, are released very quickly into the blood stream causing your pancreas to release a hormone called insulin to lower these levels in your blood. Insulin is an anabolic hormone which causes the carbohydrates and fats to be stored in your body. Therefore, to optimize weight loss you want to keep your insulin levels low, our diets will help you achieve that goal. Moreover, higher insulin levels lead to Type 2 Diabetes and early Coronary Artery disease. Our diet is extremely safe and effective for controlling and possibly eliminating Type 2 Diabetes. We are able to lower and sometimes eliminate blood pressure and diabetic medication on our program. We closely monitor and adjust your medications when indicated while on our program. Our diets are ideal if you are diabetic.
