What Is Medical Weight Loss?
Medical Weight Loss Programs are weight loss programs based on empirical evidence and science for people who have difficulty losing weight and keeping it off. Often there are underlying medical problems that prevent an individual from achieving weight loss. A typical medical weight loss program uses lab testing to provide medical insights and create customized weight loss programs for a patient’s unique needs in a safe and supportive environment.
How Much Does Medical Weight Loss Cost?
Costs for medical weight loss vary from person to person and length of treatment needed to achieve the target weight. Since we’re able to bill insurance, programs at Blue Sky MD Hendersonville are affordable for most people. Patients are generally only responsible for primary care co-pay. We also have competitive self pay options available.
What is Hormone Replacement Therapy?
HRT involves supplementing a patient's natural hormone levels by means of implants, oral medications, or hormone pellet insertions. Hormone levels naturally decline as we age, causing a wide range of unwanted symptoms. We conduct thorough lab testing and bloodwork to analyze your unique biomarkers. Once we've established baseline levels, we work to create a treatment plan that will restore hormones to optimal levels.
How Much Does HRT Cost?
Hormone Therapy treatments are different for each person, depending on length and type of treatment. We accept insurance and offer low-cost self-pay options. Contact us to schedule a consultation to discuss treatment options and costs.
Can Hormone Replacement Therapy Help with Weight Loss?
Hormone Replacement Therapy has been shown to help with weight loss in men and women. Hormone Replacement Therapy creates lean muscle mass growth, which speeds up metabolism. HRT also increases energy levels, making exercise easier and more effective.
