Why Treat My Weight Problem?

It’s not just the weight, but also where it is located. Fat tissue is inflammatory and causes metabolic disorders of aging such as high blood pressure, diabetes, sleep apnea, and even cancer to occur at more rapid rates. Fat tissue located in the abdomen or around your organs such as the liver and heart will increase your risk of heart disease and even cirrhosis.

We Assess This At NOVA Health Recovery Through:

Bioimpedance measurements to assess muscle mass, metabolic rate, and amount and location of the adipose tissue.

KORR metabolic measurements using an indirect calorimeter to know EXACTLY what your metabolism is

Extensive metabolic panels to determine gut health, hormonal health, cholesterol risk, and nutrigenetics through gene testing. This can help guide the best diet plan

 

The most medically-proven methods for weight loss are medical meal replacement. For those who need to narrow their focus on food choices, we offer:

Optifast Meal Replacement

The Optifast plan is managed with an on-line portal that includes thousands of nutritional videos with dietitians and behavioral health support. The plan includes unlimited texting with these specialists as well and also has on line exercise and group sessions. The Optifast product is ordered by you on the portal and delivered directly to you.

Nutrimed Meal Replacements

Nutrimed is another meal replacement plan that includes medical meal replacements of shakes, bars, and drinks that are guided by your initial metabolic measurements. We will connect you with a dietitian through Virtual Health Partners, which includes dietitian support, behavioral health support, online nutritional videos, and exercise classes. This will provide the lifestyle changes necessary to successfully manage your weight loss and health. We can also arrange individual dietary and nutritional support through online meetings.

Based on your metabolism and metabolic assessment, we can provide IV vitamin support such has high dose B vitamins, vitamin C, trace minerals, magnesium, and amino acids to accelerate your metabolism and weight loss.

While standard lipid screening plays an important role in risk assessment, residual cardiovascular risk can still be significant despite management of traditional risk factors.1

Recent data suggests that even after statin therapy, residual risk still exists in many patients.2

Going beyond standard lipid panels to assess lipoprotein and apolipoprotein risk factors may provide deeper insights into the residual risk of your patients.

Patients who may benefit from advanced testing include those with:
  • Established CVD
  • Diabetes
  • Hypertension
  • Metabolic syndrome
  • Elevated LDL-C >=190 mg/dL
  • >=5% estimated ASCVD risk
  • Other traditional risk factors, including
  • Age (men >45 years; post-menopausal women)
  • Family history of premature onset of CVD
  • Unhealthy diet, excessive alcohol intake, smoking, and/or stress
  • Obesity
  • Low HDL-C
