Non-surgical Weight Loss Q&A

What is non-surgical weight loss?

Losing excess body weight is vital for your health. For some people with severe obesity that’s putting their life in danger, specialist surgeons perform bariatric (weight loss) surgery. These procedures reduce stomach size and constitute major surgery, so they’re a last resort. For most patients with weight challenges, non-surgical weight loss is the safest option.

The Newtown Gastroenterology team offers effective, proven, non-surgical weight loss programs. They help you lose weight steadily and keep it off without resorting to surgery.

Why should I consider non-surgical weight loss?

Excess body weight has numerous adverse effects that make non-surgical weight loss well worth considering. It’s a leading cause of several life-threatening diseases and increases your risk of many others. Conditions directly linked to excess weight include:

• High cholesterol
• High blood pressure
• Type 2 diabetes
• Coronary artery disease (CAD) and heart attacks
• Carotid artery disease and strokes
• Peripheral arterial disease (PAD)
• Osteoarthritis
• Kidney disease
• Depression and anxiety
• Obstructive sleep apnea (OSA)
• Gallbladder disorders
• Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD)
• Some cancers

Excess weight also increases your likelihood of developing conditions like gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), skin disorders, and infections. You’ll likely experience chronic fatigue, shortness of breath, widespread discomfort, and numerous inconveniences in daily life. You’re also likely to have confidence and self-esteem issues. Non-surgical weight loss considerably reduces your chances of developing health problems like these.

What does non-surgical weight loss involve?

During food allergy testing, the Newtown Gastroenterology team discusses your symptoms, medications, and medical history. They also ask about your family history of food allergies or other allergies. Your provider completes a physical exam and may recommend a skin prick test, blood testing, or an oral food challenge, which gives you small amounts of foods that might be triggering your allergies.

Skin prick testing involves pricking your skin with suspected allergens to see if you develop signs of an allergic reaction. Your gastroenterologist might also ask you to avoid certain foods for a week or two to see if your symptoms subside.

What happens after food allergy testing?

Before you begin a weight loss program, the Newtown Gastroenterology team performs a thorough physical exam, medical history review, and weight assessment. They also take blood samples to check for conditions that reduce your ability to lose weight, like hypothyroidism. If you have underlying health problems, the team ensures you get the appropriate treatment.

Everyone’s non-surgical weight loss plan reflects their unique needs, but all will use diet and exercise as their foundation. That means reducing the calories (units of energy) you consume and increasing daily calorie use. Nutrition counseling helps you make better dietary choices, and behavioral therapy alters your attitudes to food so you eat less and stop comfort eating.

The Newtown Gastroenterology team can prescribe weight loss medications like appetite suppressants if necessary. These drugs stop you from feeling hungry and help you feel full more quickly when you eat.
