Weight Management Q & A
How does excess weight affect my health?
When you gain weight, the stress on your bones, muscles, and joints significantly increases. The cells that store fat actively release hormones and other substances that affect your metabolism, cause body-wide inflammation, and influence the health of systems throughout your body.
As a result, you have a higher risk of developing:
- Type 2 diabetes
- High blood pressure
- High cholesterol
- Cardiovascular disease
- Obstructive sleep apnea
Being overweight may also raise your risk of developing breast cancer, endometrial cancer, and colon cancer.
How does physician-supervised weight management help me lose weight?
With physician-supervised weight management, your journey begins with a physical checkup to be sure you don’t have problems that affect your weight loss efforts.
With ongoing support and encouragement from the team at Signature Health and Wellness, you also have a better chance of achieving and maintaining your healthy weight.

Lipo-B weight loss injections
A lipo-B injection contains vitamin B12 and other lipotropic components such as choline, methionine, and inositol. Vitamin B12 boosts your energy and helps your body build healthy cells, while lipotropic substances enhance liver function, increase fat elimination, and speed up your metabolism.
Prescription medications that can boost your weight loss may also be an option. These medications increase fat metabolism, suppress your appetite, make you feel full, or block fat absorption.
