lose weight prevent disease optimize health
meet and exceed your personal weight loss and health goals using the new age, data driven approach to a functional diet and lifestyle you can maintain for life.
MetabolicMD is a weight loss center serving patients in Ohio, Indiana and Florida that utilizes a Continuous Glucose Monitor (CGM) combined with semaglutide and our physician-supervised low carbohydrate diet to achieve weight loss and improved health. MetabolicMD patients lose weight, but also eliminate many chronic health conditions. We use new age, data driven approaches, technologies and medications tailored to fit your unique needs related to your current state of metabolic health.
The vast majority of our patients reach their goals and sustain their weight loss. Nearly all of our prediabetic patients reverse pre-diabetes completely. Many of our diabetic patients put their diabetes in remission, meaning they are able to come off most or all of their diabetic medications, and their blood glucose is controlled by diet only in a normal range. Many of our patients are able to eliminate hypertension, lower cholesterol and triglyceride levels. Weight loss and health goals can often be attained without calorie restriction and without experiencing the hunger typical of other diets. Our carefully-formulated, data driven personalized approach offered is nearly universally characterized by both rapid, early weight loss, and long-term weight loss sustainability.
At MetabolicMD, we provide a data driven weight loss program using the technology of CGM to empower patients to meet their weight loss and health goals. Knowing your blood sugar on a continuous basis provides exceptional dieting motivation. We invite patients to lose weight, reverse chronic disease, and feel better with the MetabolicMD CGM program.
The MetabolicMD Program is available to those in Ohio, Indiana and Florida. Our program can be done 100% virtually, or you are welcome to visit our practice located in Dayton, OH.
Semaglutide – Weight Loss Injections
Semaglutide is a medicine which is similar to a natural hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). GLP-1 is produced in the body after eating a meal. Drugs belonging to the GLP-1 drug class are normally given as an injection and some are already available on the market to treat diseases such as type 2 diabetes and obesity. More recently, semaglutide has been a game changer for those patients who are nondiabetic however still needing assistance with meaningful weight management options.
Studies of semaglutide suggest it has beneficial effects on the cardiovascular system, including reducing blood pressure and improving levels of fat in the blood.
What is Continuous Glucose Monitoring (CGM)?
Continuous Glucose Monitoring is the widely-accepted process of measuring blood sugar (blood glucose) nonstop, 24/7, even while you sleep. Though traditionally used to help diabetics monitor their blood glucose, CGM also has great applicability for non-diabetic and pre-diabetic patients who want to lose weight and improve health. The technique uses a tiny electrode placed under the skin which is attached to a small wearable transmitter. The transmitter sends data to a receiver, usually a cell phone. The monitor is self-applied painlessly at home by the user in about five minutes. Once placed it allows a constant reading of blood glucose for a period of 14 days. Data can be remotely monitored by your MetabolicMD program physician and nutritionist. After 14 days, the old electrode/transmitter is discarded and a new one applied.
Through the technology of continuous glucose monitoring, users are able to check their current glucose levels with a simple scan to their smartphone. This real time data is a crucial component of the MetabolicMD program by helping you to understand how your blood sugar is affected by the food you eat. CGM reduces blood glucose variability (blood sugar spikes and plunges) to improve energy levels and reduce mental fogginess. By avoiding periods of low blood glucose, CGM improves mental clarity. CGM not only guides weight loss, but also provides the user data on blood glucose patterns to optimize energy levels, thinking processes, and even sleep patterns. By adjusting blood glucose to optimal levels, people effectively address a variety of other important health issues. If you seek to optimize health and wellness, lose weight, enhance lean body mass, reduce fatigue, improve mental sharpness and sleep better, then you will benefit greatly from a CGM diet and the MetabolicMD program.
