Medical Weight Loss Q&A

What is medical weight loss?

Medical weight loss is personalized weight management under medical supervision. At Grace Health Services, you get weight loss support from an experienced specialist who can help with all aspects of weight loss, from making smart food choices to supporting your bodywide health and preventing nutrient deficiencies.

Losing excess weight helps to protect you from many diseases. If you have a condition like Type 2 diabetes, weight loss can help you avoid needing medication.

What can I expect from medical weight loss?

Grace Health Services may recommend weight loss injections like Semaglutide to enhance results. Your personalized weight loss program also helps to balance your nutrient levels through diet and other methods like IV vitamin therapy.

Your provider can also work with you to address any specific health issues. For example, research shows a correlation between autoimmune disorders like Hashimoto’s disease (the most common cause of hypothyroidism) and excess weight. An underactive thyroid gland slows metabolism, making it difficult to lose weight.

Treatments like IV vitamin therapy can help balance the body’s nutrients and stabilize metabolism. It can also improve skin, hair, and overall health.

The practice also offers primary care and family medicine. If you manage a health condition like hypertension, diabetes, or thyroid disease, your medical provider can assist you in reaching any weight loss goals safely.

What are some types of weight loss injections?

Medical weight loss injections include:


The practice offers compounded semaglutide for medical weight loss.


Metformin (among others) can be a weight loss tool for people with type 2 diabetes. Low vitamin B-12 levels can be a side effect of this medication.

B12 Injections 

Although vitamin B12 is not a weight loss medicine, people with low levels might experience weight loss from the injection. 

Low B-12 levels in your body can be a side effect of certain medications. Talk to your provider about how to keep enough vitamin B-12 to support healthy weight loss and management.

IV vitamin therapy

Deficient nutrient levels also disrupt body chemistry, slowing metabolism. Low energy means you need help burning fat, building lean muscle, or easily maintaining weight. Nutrient depletion can contribute to weight problems. IV vitamin therapy can promote a healthy weight.
