Weight Management

Need To Lose Some Extra Pounds?

The providers at Sweetwater OB GYN Associates understand that weight management and loss is a challenge for most people. With this in mind we have created a program that focuses on your individual long term goals to maintain not only a healthy weight, but also a healthy lifestyle.

Medically Managed Weight Loss Program

Our program gives you the advice and direction you need in order to reach your goal. We have created a successful regimen that includes nutrition counseling, exercise recommendations, fiber matrix drink, B12 shots, and appropriate prescription medications, for a weight loss plan that is achievable and sustainable for you.

Nutritional Supplements

We believe that the health of each individual is directly linked to the foods and supplements we ingest and the way in which we care for our bodies. We encourage each patient to participate in optimizing her health. We offer detailed nutritional testing with SpectraCell and we have investigated and highly recommend the products from Douglas Laboratories. We will be offering weight loss “boot camps” and eating plans especially designed for women, which will emphasize balancing your hormones, weight, and mood with a combination of diet and exercise and nutritionals.

Are All Nutritional Supplements The Same?
  • Many over the counter (OTC) supplements contain only 10% or less of recommended daily nutritional intakes, for example
Centrum Performance 5.8%
One Source Multivitamin 5.8%
Geritol Complete 3.4%
Herbalife 14.8%
  • Purity is a paramount concern. Only supplements that comply with the stringent Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) for pharmaceuticals can prove purity and accurate labeling
Why Do We Recommend Our Supplements Over Others?

Douglas Lab supplements are GMP registered, with over 50 years at the forefront of the nutritional health industry.

They perform sophisticated scientific analysis to ensure the highest quality and purity of ingredients and are FDA audit compliant.

They perform comprehensive safety review of ingredients before they release them
Their state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities surpass GMP standards and manufacturing regulations.

Why Nutritional Supplements?
  • More and More studies clearly show the benefits of different vitamins and nutrients in the prevention of cancer, heart disease, and other medical conditions
  • Data compiled by the US Dept of Agriculture showed that at least 40% of Americans routinely consume less than 60% of the recommended daily intake for essential nutrients.
  • After 20 years the American Medical Association completely reversed its anti-vitamin stance and now encourages all adults to supplement with daily vitamins; “All of us grew up believing that if we ate a reasonable diet, that it would take care of our vitamin needs. But the new evidence, much of it in the last couple of years, is that vitamins also prevent the usual disease we deal with everyday-heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, and birth defects”. –Dr Robert Fletcher, JAMA 6-12-02

Medical Weight Loss

At Sugar Land Hormones and Wellness, there are various safe and effective options for medical weight loss. We take a careful history and evaluation and discuss a plan that fits your needs best. Your treatment may contain meal replacements, GLP-1 agonists, appetite suppressants, anti-aging peptides, meal replacements, nutraceuticals or a combination of various therapies. Body composition is analyzed monthly.

Injection Therapy

With intramuscular injections, vital nutrients can be delivered directly into the muscle so they can be delivered gradually throughout the body. This delivery method is can be more effective than oral ingestion of these nutrients that must be metabolized in the GI tract before being delivered in smaller amounts throughout the body.

Vitamin B12 – Vitamin B12 injections, also known as cobalamin, is essential for many roles in your body. Its main function is to help cells form and metabolize properly. It also plays a role in brain function, supporting neurons and cell formation. It is necessary for DNA synthesis and red blood cell formation. Vitamin B12 is one of the eight B vitamins, all of which are important in maintaining cell health.
MIC – “Lipolean” Injection – A Methionine Inositol Choline (MIC) injection consists of a formula of lipotropics, compounds that help break down fat. The primary compounds in the formula–methionine, inositol, choline–work to metabolize fat cells and assist in the elimination of stored fat deposits in the liver and body. Methionine is an essential amino acid, inositol is involved in proper cell formation, and choline is a water-soluble nutrient that supports proper liver function. Together they may encourage fat reduction.
Alpha Lipoic Acid “Skinny Shot” – Alpha Lipoic Acid(ALA) mimics insulin, improving both glucose metabolism and insulin sensitivity. This simply means that more glucose is transported into the cells rather than being stored as fat. ALA also improves the conversion of carbs to energy, which means fewer carbohydrates are stored as fat cells. Some studies show that when taken in combination with a calorie-controlled diet, Alpha lipoic acid supplementation has the potential to boost weight loss.
Glutathione – Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant and detox substance. It also increases insulin sensitivity. It may be beneficial for skin lightening, liver detox, and weight loss
Vitamin C – one of the most powerful antioxidants, Vitamin C is also called ascorbic acid, and it helps the growth and repair of all your body’s tissues. It has been used to boost immunity and cellular repair. It is considered an anti-aging vitamin that can reduce fatigue, improve skin texture, and look by contributing to collagen production.
